Ghost Army

I really liked the recent image from +Matt Anderson of the "Four Ghosts"....I am a sucker for haunting images. Tonight I got some decent light at my back and shot this image of a small island near my home. The sun was low and to my back so the trees were illuminated with a warm soft glow. Very nice...but not what I wanted. I wanted that haunting feeling too...a dark heavy glow above an army of white twisted trunks....my "Ghost Army"

Tech: Canon 5D Mark III, EF70-200mm f/2.8L, ISO200, 1/25sec@f/11, post processing in Silver Efex Pro 2 and PS5.

Striking image. There's a lot going on, but it feels like a minimalist photo to me: trees, water. I think your B&W treatment is perfect, and the composition is wonderful.
 
A powerful image David!
You see - it is good when I go away - you are able to focus more on your "hobby"!
 
now this is what i called "Ass Kicking" work!
 
You're welcome +David Plowchalk, i have you under my A List Photogs - about 20 of them. I have another Personal Top with less than 10... lol... that's what i do with too time on hand, organising circles...
 
+Nicholas Ong - you are too kind :-) BTW - loved your 3-part series on MHC. Well written with the perfect amount of humor, sarcasm and truth.

Well, at least 2 MHC members got to know about it and 1 already blocked me. :)
