Crown of Thorns

Raleigh, North Carolina

I shot this one day while on a hike with a friend. It caught my eye as I walked past and it was just the way it hung there. When I took the photo what captured me was how the barbed wire was hanging about on this stump of a tree. But when I got it home and really looked at it, I couldn't help but be reminded of the crown of thorns that is often depicted on a crucifix.

I have another version in my gallery which is slightly green. It's the effect of a stray mouse click in CaptureOne by Phase One. (Cool program if you shoot in RAW.) I really liked the way that one turned out also but this version has been edited using CaptureNX. I feel this is the photo that has been hidden in all that data originally captured on my D100. I must admit, I was never very satisfied with the D100. I no longer have the 50mm lens I used to take this photo. I used to think it was useless but the more I pour over older photos that I've taken with it, I realize it is one of the sharpest lenses I had in my bag.
