WOWEEE! This is a Favorite for me, too! FANTASTIC, Paul! If it wasn't 4:30 in the morning and I wasn't quite so tired, I could go on and on about this really stunning photo! (You are probably glad of that. LOL!) In my book, this is totally a Winner! Awesome work in all respects!

Great idea to convert this, Paul ~ it makes the trees almost three-dimensional with the threatening clouds behind them. Moody, beautiful capture.
