I'm away on my boat, and will have little opportunity to visit AM3. All the following weeks images have been pre-posted, and are a bunch of random shots from various times and places.
This shot is from Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire
Thats what happened to Robin Hood !! Great shot.

@Anthony Lambert: Ha ha, I think he was supposed to have hid in an Oak just like this one. I think this ancient oak would have been around when he was, but the hands belong to a mate of mine.
woooow , that's great

Beautiful, yet creepy, how did you do this? Let me guess! mirrored in Photoshop?

@Persian King: Its just one photo on 35mm film, with very little PP. The model was my friend Steve, who has very long fingers. The tree is an ancient oak in Sherwood Forest (famous for Robin Hood), and was probably split by a bolt of lightning, or maybe the middle just gave way, leaving a huge space inside. Steve squeezed into the tree, and I directed him to stick his hands out like that. All I did in Photoshop was to increase the contrast, and sharpen the result.
A great compo ! High technical quality and very good idea !

Very expressive! Good art piece. And certainly very well executed technically.

@Marion: Thanks Marion. I have to take her (the boat that is) up the River Trent to the City of Nottingham, and I've been painting and varnishing the exterior and interior all last week. I'm just back at home for one night, to catch up and all that.
