@Craig: They are cool Indians, aren't they? I shot this at a friend's house. The minute I turned the corner in their living room and saw the tree through the small window, I knew it would be a nice shot.
You have an eye for the unusual and beautiful, that's a real asset in photography...one suggestion (first one I received when I joined Am3 from Ian Bramham....straighten the horizon...it's so easy to do if you download Picasa2 (which is free) it gives you tons of options one of which is to straighten your photo LOL

@Lorraine: Thanks for the lovely compliment and tip! I have a terrible tendency to tip my camera.
I worked a little bit with Picasa and I love the straightening function. Need to mess with it a bit more, as it caused the image of the tree to blur.
you clearly have an eye for photography and find great shots like this, many wouldnt have included the indian masks but I feel it is a nice touch adding them, beautiful colors in the tree.

@JJ: Thank you! I don't think the picture would've had the same feeling had I omitted the Indian heads.
You don't need photos on that wall with that window. That is a stunning view.

@Michael Rawluk: I agree, Michael. My friends (who own the house) live on a little piece of paradise in Missouri.
I use Picasa and the straightening feature does tend to lower quality, yep. Love the shot, especially the addition of the Indian heads.

@Bookfool: Thanks for the info, Nancy. I was afraid I'd done something wrong while processing the alignment! I simply need to just learn to hold my camera (and head) straight while shooting!
Really? never noticed...I'll check it out, would hate to give you bad advice ;) although technically the straightening function can be had with other programs probably Photoshop can do a better Job?

@Lorraine: Not a problem, Lorraine. I'll still mess around with it. I was trying to rush and get it re-posted. :)
That's a very interesting shot... nice job...

@greg: Thanks, Greg. I was visiting some friends in Missouri and the minute I turned the corner into their living room, I knew I had to grab my camera and get the shot.
Thanks for stopping by.
