get knotted

Other candidates for a title included "torture" and "mating season".
Taken with the Lensbaby, which I really need to use more often.
All apt titles. Very nice!

You have the best beach. :). So many contrasty shapes and lines.

On the Photoshop front, you can get PS and Lightroom for about $10 US per month, via a Creative Cloud subscription (automatic updates included). Offered only 'cause I saw it on your comment from another photo earlier this PM, if you didn't already know about this option.

fabulous ! fav
December 13th, 2016  
Very artistic, love the contrast.
December 13th, 2016  
Fantastic.. took a shot of a similar stump this morning..
December 13th, 2016  
I can see this printed and hanging on the wall.
December 13th, 2016  
@salza Wow, thank you very much :)
@julzmaioro Thank you very much :)
@susiangelgirl Thanks very much :)
@kali66 Thank ya ma'am, always appreciated
@rosiekerr Thank you - I did know about that but at the moment my lovely wifey is a poor student, and we're still paying for the daughters exchange to Chile...so for now every penny is spoken for!!! I will get there though...
@monty147 Thank you very much :)
December 13th, 2016  
@graemestevens Just checking... wanted to make sure. Chile! How exciting. :)
December 13th, 2016  
Cracking shot
December 13th, 2016  
I am so entranced by this shot. A fav.
December 13th, 2016  
Wonderful shot. Looks like there are arms and hands clutching at one another and the dark and stormy looking sky makes a great background.
December 13th, 2016  
@gardencat Thank you very much - I don't often get excited about drift wood, but I loved this one.
@pandorasecho Thank you so much :)
@spanner Thank you again :)
December 13th, 2016  
Great shot. Very dramatic. Looks kind of orgy-like..
December 13th, 2016  
Terrific image with creative ideas for titles.
December 13th, 2016  
From benign to unsettling. Success.
December 13th, 2016  
Love all the titles for this shot
December 13th, 2016  
Outstanding and instant Fav, this is one for the wall.
December 13th, 2016  
Love the capture my first impressions was of dancers in a leaning backwards movement...fav
December 13th, 2016  
@mrforja Thank you very much - I didn't initially see dancers, but now I do
@tonygig Thank you so much, much appreciated :)
@ezzzmaay It had to have some redeeming qualities ;)
@scotthouston Mission accomplished ;)
@dide Thank you very much :)
@katrinanz That was my thinking as well...slightly disturbing
December 13th, 2016  
Wonderfully convoluted.
December 13th, 2016  
@aecasey I certainly wouldn't want to be the one to try and untangle it!
December 13th, 2016  
Interesting shapes in there - possible to read quite a bit into it.
December 13th, 2016  
Fantastic piece of driftwood. Real fantasy stuff.
December 13th, 2016  
Great lighting and excellent photo
December 13th, 2016  
dramatic shot! That driftwood is amazing
December 13th, 2016  
Love it :)
December 13th, 2016  
I was looking for faces and bodies in in the shot ,, Very cool , It makes you want to look at it . Fav.
December 13th, 2016  
A most awesome b&w. Fav 👍
December 13th, 2016  
nice ...
December 13th, 2016  
Love this, I keep going back to it and every time I see something different.
December 13th, 2016  
Just superb... for me, this could well be titled 'The Wraiths of the Ocean Depths'. Another bl**dy Fav!
December 13th, 2016  
Excellent :-) Really dramatic!
December 13th, 2016  
VERY effective use of LB! I find that to be the most challenging of lenses. Rarely use it for that reason.
December 13th, 2016  
Wonderful shapes and gnarls, nice pov
December 13th, 2016  
And the lensbaby worked great...good reminder
December 13th, 2016  
Wonderful! FAV.
December 13th, 2016  
Perfect, such natural beauty!
December 13th, 2016  
@brett101 Thank you - the photo ain't bad either ;)
@kwind Thank you very much :)
@jgpittenger Thank you very much - I really should use it more often!
@taffy I think that's what stops me as well - I always find that a third hand would be quite useful...and thank you
@hiro Thank you very much :)
@vignouse That's a bleedin' good title sir, and as always I am sorry that you've had to part with a fav!
@hubmom That's what appeals about the drift wood on this particular beach, and there is a lot of it as well.
@pdulis Thank you very much :)
@paul10 Thank you kindly, always appreciated
@wildernesswillie Thank you very much - it makes a pleasant change as most of my shots make people not want to look ;)
@hermann Thank you kindly :)
@barb_b Thank you very much - sadly it was too big to take home ;)
@pools82 Thank you very much - 8am is a good time for the light...who know there was an 8 in the morning as well as the evening? ;)
@365projectorgsebgritt Thank you very much :)
@dkbarnett There's a lot to see - the beaches at Whanganui/Wanganui are covered in it
December 13th, 2016  
What a cracker.
December 13th, 2016  
@jocasta Thank you very much :)
December 13th, 2016  
This has a beautifully surreal feel - when I see work by you, @humphreyhippo and @aprilmilani I marvel at what a lensbaby can do in the right hands ...
December 13th, 2016  
I feel better having read your alternate titles. I thought it might just be me. ;)
December 13th, 2016  
I can see all sorts of shapes & figures here Graeme! I can see hands, a horses eye, figures leaning all one way & clinging onto each other, amazing!
December 13th, 2016  
I think the titles are endless as it is such an interesting piece of flotsam or is it jetsam. can never remember
December 13th, 2016  
I like the word, tortuous for this piece of driftwood! Something seen in old German fairy tales!
December 13th, 2016  
So organic, fav!
December 13th, 2016  
@joemuli Thanks very much :)
@maggiemae Torturous seems to be the most fitting...
@theboxmanreturns I can never remember either so I tend to stick with "beach stuff"...and thank you :)
@happypat Thank you - it's the most interesting piece I've seen in a long while...
@humphreyhippo I feel better as well knowing that I'm not alone ;)
December 13th, 2016  
Love the focus and DOF. A natural subject too, always a favourite for me.
December 14th, 2016  
ha ha great title....and great image!
December 14th, 2016  
Fabulous. Looks like tortured souls to me.
December 14th, 2016  
Looks a little like that Iwo Jima picture of the soldiers raising the flag. it's great either way and a fav..
December 14th, 2016  
Nah, that's a perfect caption.
December 14th, 2016  
@golftragic Why thank you - I shall blush appropriately
@jack4john Huh, so it does...and thank you :)
@swillinbillyflynn That works for me :)
@hrs Thank you very much, on both counts :)
@gamelee Thank you very much indeed :)
December 14th, 2016  
Like fine art. Very human.

Love it, very artsy. I can see faces here
December 14th, 2016  
@susale Thank you very much :)
@alophoto Thanks awfully :)
December 14th, 2016  
Like an organic orgy :-) Fav
December 14th, 2016  
@jesperani I'm not sure about what types of orgy are available these days, so I'm just going to go with a Thank You :)
December 14th, 2016  
Brilliant. Fav
December 15th, 2016  
@losthorizon Thank you very much :)
December 15th, 2016  
Omg! So dramatic !! And so great at B&W!!!

@wildernesswillie so was I! This is a great shot.
December 17th, 2016  
@olenadole Thank you very much :)
@not_left_handed Thank you very much :)
December 18th, 2016  
Powerful and beautifully taken shot! Fav
December 19th, 2016  
The most awesome piece of wood....it really has come to life....it should be the centre piece of your garden....I like all your title ideas but mating season seems very apt
December 19th, 2016  
@annied Mating season was my favourite as well...and yet I went with get knotted. As for being in the garden...it was too big to fit in the car otherwise it would have come home with me.
@flashster78 Thank you very much :)
December 19th, 2016  
@graemestevens it is quite beautiful ☺
December 19th, 2016  
@annied Indeed, and so is the photo
December 20th, 2016  
@graemestevens I was going to add 'and beautifully photographed' - but knew you knew that already :)
December 20th, 2016  
Awesome seascape such a find
