The Week 11 challenge on Sonel’s Photo-Editing Challenge is Trees and/or Tree Trunks. I immediately thought of this pictures I captured a couple of months ago on my iPhone 5 while out yard saling. It struck me as so odd and so Determined, that I wanted to use it for this. If you’re wondering why I highlighted the word Determined, it’s because if you look at the gateway created by the two trees connecting, the space forms the letter D. I thought of way too many captions for this picture, so I’ll let that suffice! Feel free to chime in your caption thoughts in the comments if you feel so inclined!
There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can circumvent or hinder the firm resolve of a determined soul.

Oddest sets of trees I’ve seen. I can’t seem to figure out how the branches of two separate trees came together like that so perfectly!
I love that editing. But then I love photos of trees. And trees. Every day I go for a walk and see trees I want to photograph!
I’m not exactly sure what the fascination with trees is, but I definitely have it! 🙂
That’s an awesome tree! I really like the edit you chose. 😀
Thank you, Jackie! 🙂
Thanks, Sally! 🙂
Reblogged this on Sonel's Corner Photo-Editing Challenge.
Awesome shot Linda! You truly have an eye for taking great shots like this hon! What a beautiful tree and you’ve captured it perfectly. It truly was determined! Great post and edit and thanks so much for taking part and for sharing. Much appreciated. 😀 *hugs*
Wow, thank you Sonel. I am extremely flattered by your compliment! 🙂
You are very welcome Linda. Well deserved hon. 😀 *hugs*
loved your edit!
Thanks, Cindy. I’m finding that some of these photo editing apps have some fun and unusual options! 🙂
I like the edits you made to this picture. The cropping and use of B&W really focuses attention of the key parts of the photo.
Thanks, Sheryl! I tried different things but this was my favorite, too! 🙂

D as in Darn Good!
Thanks, Johanna! 🙂
The edit with the crop, black and white, and vignette are perfect. It brings the D into focus and gets rid of the extraneous garage door and car in the driveway. It takes it out of a neighborhood into a more “anywhere” place. Very cool!
Thanks, Meghan! I haven’t learned how to use the editing programs where I can take out or replace the background, etc., so when I found this, I grabbed it! 🙂
I love the vignette, it really draws you in, well done!
Thank you so much! 🙂
