Photo Hunters - Twisted



Chinese tree
This tree can be found near the Chinese pagoda along the Cliff Walk in Newport, Rhode Island. It reminds me of twisted trees you see in Chinese paintings.

I played around in Photoshop and got this really twisted looking tree using the "neon glow" effect.
Really Twisted

Here is a detailed shot of these twisted branches

If you don't know what I mean by twisted trees in Chinese paintings, the artist Wang Dachuan does.

I actually used this image to write a story. I just now got around to hunting down the origins, and I apologize for that. In the meantime:
