    My first photography project for class. A commentary on the human casual abuse of our natural resources. Hypocritical? Could be. :eek:

    Interesting. I don't really know what to say. I.......I like the shot with the blood in it.

    I'm thinking in hindsight that using the blood was distracting from the emotional theme of man vs. nature, and would have been more effective if it had been more of a subtle/psychological effect rather than the in-your-face B-movie effect that I got.

    Unfortunately, on the only day we could shoot, it was cold (35 degrees F) and very windy, so my model was getting very cold and towards the end my fingers were so numb I could hardly opperate the shutter. If I were to do it over, I would be more delicate with the application of the 'blood' on the tree instead of generously splashing it on.

    I like it.

    I have trouble pruning trees, so I can relate with what you have here.
