Default simply not

Well, I thought it was neat, maybe they didn't like the poison ivy

Indeed a neat shot, but the focus here seems to be on the tree and not so much that old rail, and that's probably what did ya over on this one.

It's a shot of a tree. 'Nuff said.

Speaking of poison ivy, when I got this shot from 40 feet up in a tree, I didn't realize when I first climbed it that the woody vines covering the tree were poison ivy:

Yesterday, my left arm looked like this. I won't show you what it looks like today.



Both arms have poison ivy rashes on them from my wrists to my elbows, but my left arm is worse.

I had the same thing happen to me in the spring leaning over a barb wire fence, apparently the wild grape vines were mingled with ivy I think the fact that a few barbs punctured my skin was the big factor since I never had gotten poison ivy before. Just wait till it starts itching, get the Calamine lotion ready..At least the pic got in

and as far as the shot, yes "it's a shot of a tree" that was the point as in Mother nature reclaiming....

I am not a simpleton, I can understand that. Read the guidelines, then maybe you'll agree that this shot isn't really RP material.

Bill, I think you need to show a better angle of the tree. Perhaps a wedgie angle of the rails will show more of the impact of the tree, and also keep the poison ivy in the shot.
