Tried to give a 60's look to this photo of a 100+ years old heritage American elm located in a huge parkade near the Stampede grounds.

Wow, one doesn't see elms like that anymore. And the processing works to convey age, but the picture might be even more effective with something very modern in the shot. It would emphasize the survivor aspect of that venerable tree.

Thanks, Wicked. I also have photos of this tree in full foliage with the Saddle Dome in the background that I took last summer. But I will likely be back again for a few more captures. :)
