A Giant Oak

A friend emailed my about an abandoned log cabin in the eastern part of Smith County. I found the cabin and got several good shots which I will start posting tomorrow. This oak tree is what really fascinated me, it was huge, and just look at the shape of it’s limbs. If you look at the lower left you can see part of the cabin. So which one do you like?

  1. I’d go with the B&W image. I had a similar decision to make with a 100 year old Japanese maple image – which I opted to go with the B&W – although i did apply a slight (11%) warming filter to the converted grayscale image in the end. Can’t wait to see the cabin shots.

  2. I think it depends on what effect you want to achieve… the b&w accentuates the body and lines of the tree, and is quite interesting… the color version seems to make the tree much more alive and present … it gives a sense of immensity and age to the tree. I think they’re both good… it’s a great shot, but I think the color is much more dramatic in this case.
