12/4/08 - Winter Oak Montage

Cheating a bit on the daily photo. This is from two years ago. I came across it while looking for winter scenes with this oak in it.
This is a montage - a image made by overlaying two separate images. In this case, the oak image was overlayed with a close up of bark from a white birch. I tried to give it the appearance of opening a torn page. This is one of my favorite montages.
I have a category of photos in my database called backgrounds & textures. They come in handy for montages. Here's an example that uses a piece of old weathered board (which I've used in several favorites). The board is from the fence framing this image -
