Show it! - {Tampa Bay Photographer}

I'm so excited!!  I've printed my first "art" piece!   I probably should wait until it's up on the wall to share this, but I can't.  Patience is not always my strong suit.  I originally shot the image back in October during a festival at Withlacoochee State Park.  I was inspired by an episode of Peter Lik's show on the Weather Channel (I think that's the channel) in which he tilted the camera down while shooting to create a "painted" effect.   There was this area of pine trees that were all lined up, creating a vertically strong image that I thought this technique might look interesting.   And it sure did!  I couldn't have been happier.

It has remained a digital file until I wanted to try out a new canvas lab and thought, hey, what about my painted trees?   Below is the product and I couldn't be more thrilled with both the photo and the lab.   The first photo is the digital image - please not that the "painted" effect was achieved in camera and other than small white balance and color adjustments, this is the photo as I shot it.
