Picture of the day - February 24, 2009

"Spooky Tree"

Photo of a very spooky-looking tree.
Photo courtesy of Agata Urbaniak.

Today's picture is an excellent example of how an everyday object can be photographed in a way that makes it appear to be quite out of the ordinary indeed. To create this intriguing image photographer Agata Urbaniak shot an ordinary tree from an unusual perspective using creative lighting and post-processing techniques which gave the finished photograph a decidedly "spooky" look. And in my opinion the "experiment" turned out rather well.

I guess this just goes to show that with a little imagination and a few photography & post processing skills we can turn what would have been an ordinary picture into something right out of a storybook.

    This picture is more beautiful than it is spooky. The exposure and vignetting are wonderful!
