The saint tree



Little Balerina
Stays out of the pack
Lonely little dancer
Says a little prayer each day

Praised be You, Saint tree, through our Sister, Mother Earth
who sustains and governs us, producing varied fruits with coloured flowers and herbs.

When I saw this in the thumbnail, I instantly thought how creative the tree stands perfectly in symmetry. I love the IR rendition.

The tree looks like a dancer on a center stage, while the audience lie in the background. The right branch looks like a bent knee as though she is about to take a bow.

Then I thought it looks like a marshmallow on a stick. I love the cloud that is hovering over, it's a nice contrasting compliment to the textures on the ground level.

I like the ambiguity, and the conceptual aspect to it, it's not easy fitting nature into that category. You have a good eye.

I'm wondering if it would look better if the tree was off center, but then there is enough room for my eyes to travel around. Beautiful image. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" />
