along the same lines as bending another experimetal photo using trees as a subject :)

his tree was found in the same place as the previous photo...in an old cemetry...

this photo was shot with fill flash, i was trying out the color difference with fill flash outdoors...the original color version was a little off in the tones, but with the details from flash and exposure, PS was able to correct the difference quite accuratly :)
