Bonsai in the Black

Having seen some of the super bonsai photographs of Harry Harrington at Bonsai4me and that other bonsai guru Walter Pall I was really  impressed with the black background pictures which made the trees look quite magnificent.
Not having the expensive studio equipment of either of those two I have had a go with working on my own photos with the help of a Paint. net software and though a slow and eye watering task it has proved quite a worthwhile exercise as you can see by these two photos of my Black Pine taken on a wall in my garden.

After that dramatic image I went on to burn the midnight oil and do a few more over the next couple of evenings.
