Photographer's Note

The problem I am dealing with here is how to portray a redwood tree; these are the tallest living things in the world, but it is difficult to see the trees for the forest. Also, the wide angle shot from the base has become something of a cliche. So this is one attempt, using a fallen tree that I found in a picnic area. I rested the camera on the table to take a long exposure.

Technical: In RAW, I set the temperature to 6000\, increased the brightness +50, the contrast +25, clarity to 80, and vibrance +30. In CS3, Noiseware followed by slight Levels adjustments.
