This photo is graded on a curve.
I rested the edge of the lens barrel on the bark where I could get a contrasted view of the tree and the woods. The result was a graduated bokeh effect on the curve of the tree and a distance enhancement on the background woods, which can still be identified, especially in the thumbnail.
I think I also somehow managed to get a landscape into a macro photo.
Just inside the woods near Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT.
