hand of man forest of Poplar

Hybrid Poplar Grove, Boardman, Oregon

©2008 Ed Book

I stopped for a few hours to photograph this grove in north central Oregon and left only because the sun had set. I was not ready to quit so made a couple exposures with my Canon G9 after getting back onto the highway - this is one of them. There is motion blur in the capture because I used a fairly long exposure due to the low light levels and movement of my van. When confronted with such a case, what I like to do if I like the composition is to exaggerate the flaw until it becomes intentional. In the full size image, there is an interesting texture in the whole image that makes the image appear needlepointish.
