Our world is made up of wood, and that’s the exciting thing about having a open challenge is that it gives people room to think and be creative. Looking at it from a sense of nature, or entropy, would be one view point of the subject. While someone else could go with wood working and a project at work shot with sawdust or a finished project. Even to a handmade antique generations old that hold sentimental value. With wood this project was one to make it your own and show something of your style.

Toby’s DUAL Winners:
I loved both of these wood trail/boardwalk shots. @kapechick has a simple shot but the wood of the path mixed with the all the young trees around makes this a very woodsy shot. And @adamstewart similar boardwalk shot offering us a glimpse of green hills in the distance is excellent, love the way the path leads us off to the green and blue. Nice work!!
Toby’s Honorable Mention:
Love the wider shot here that shows wood from untouched to almost unrecognizable. Nicely composed and captured!
Technically “reclaimed” by nature this set piece by Maritza of Hobbiton is a great focus for wood. As Toby said the place is made to be photogenic. For one it’s a great trip photo while focusing on an element of the scene rather than the grand scale of it all. As for wood It’s a great draw for the eye with good composition and naturally framed by the plants.
Roy’s Honorable Mentions:
Wood as art in this case is a great way to show texture and a good repeating pattern. I like that Christye chose to crop in losing a bit of the face to get closure and frame out the carving. It makes for a strong photo and an interesting portrait albeit wood.
Being from Michigan we have trails pretty much everywhere. When you get a nice winding wood path like this it sets a scene. With the brush coming up and a leading line to the horizon it makes for a great focus for the eye to follow the trail.
