Weekly Photo Challenge – Surprise

I took this image in the spring when I went to High Park to photograph the Sakura trees.  What I liked about this tree was that when I was looking at it there was a face staring back at me straight on. Imagine my surprise when I was processing this and I saw another face in the tree looking out to the left. See it?

I used Topaz B&W Effects to do the conversion to monochrome. Topaz Labs is having an amazing sale…40% off on all products until Dec 31, 2012. Use discount code “topaz2012”. Click here to check it out.

    • Thanks Marlee. It does look like something out of Lord of the Rings or at least HR Puff ‘N Stuff.
