Machen Oak near Lower machen, near Draethen.
a finished shot. here you'l noticed I finished the house, established the cast shadow of the oak, and clarified the light hitting the tree.
I felt it would be easier to start again on the tree as the tone families and shadows were getting a bit lost and I was confused as to where I was, so rather than fiddle, I figured starting again, and at the same time working on edges and losing as much of the hadrness of the branches that was necessary.
I took this on the side as to see what I was trying to do in blurring the edges and fuzzing the sky and clouds around the branch / tree edges.
start back into clouds and softening branches. re working tones of background bushes.
