So no people, as they're man made, even though some are still quite natural.

People can be included, if the subject matter fits the brief  :) Man made just refers to material objects such as walls, metalwork, clothes etc, etc.....

They don't grow like that, and are definitely man made, so should be out.

Stacks are good to photograph though, so don't, not do it, because it does not fit the brief!

Stacks will give you easy access to bark, which can have good textures.

Just stick to naturally occurring things, there are plenty around. All very wet and glistening at the moment!

The weather didn't cooperate today to get another shot, so I'm in with this one:

Hi

After some help if someone can spare a few minutes. I've put my comp photo in the gallery but I'm now at work and it's going to be a late one. I won't be home until after midnight and can't upload the photo to the entries thread on my phone.
Would anyone be kind enough to do it for me if they can??
I was hoping to enter the web and water drops - Web formation I was going up call it.
Sorry, I know this is a bit unorthodox but I won't be able to enter it.
Thanks
Chris
May the Force be with you.

managed to get the photos transferred at last... had a right mix of burnt trees, bark and drops in water - decided on the ferns but might try to replicate the water shots for next week.

Decided my first effort was too weak to stand and preferred this one when I got around to processing it. A gnarled old tree near a witches well in Cornwall that seemed to have some dog head action going on in it - to me at least but then.... :beer:

I had hoped for something a little more ambitious but family commitments meant finding something around the house!

My fungi were a bit boring so, instead of my last few mono's I have gone for blazing colour...
