I tried a little Photoshop experiment that I'm still not sure about. I think the look of this could be very effective for a spooky piece. I know it's not Halloween season, but I was feeling a bit morbid because of the loooooong February we're having in New England.
What I'd really like to know is this: if February is the shortest month (and it is), why does it feel like the longest?
Anyway, the best I can figue out, I started with a picture of a tree in a graveyard, layered on a transparent layer of some of the tree detail, added a few morbid lines from Psalm 49, desaturated and played until I liked (sort of!) the look.
At least I'll probably like it next October...
