I finished the print on this picture a few days ago and scanned it in. Basically a straight scan other than getting the levels correct and applying Unsharp Masking in Photoshop. I still have a bit of work with getting the sky burned in better, but I'm fairly pleased so far. Hope you enjoy.

I like this, if you crop it square and follow the line of the larger vine on the right to eliminate the sky it would look like stone snakes or something, very cool
