Life: v5

This was a shot I had really been wanting to do for a while. I had never seen it done before. I know someone out there has, but I didn't see it. It's pretty hard to find a skinny tree with a bunch of other skinny trees several yards behind it! But I found this one and snapped off a few shots. I wish I had my tripod with me, I could've done an HDR. That or multiple layers to bring out the exposure of the foreground tree a little. Anyway, no big loss, I still love this picture as it is. My favorite part is the texture of the foreground tree compared to the trees in the shallow depth of field blur. But I will still take any critique. :)
