Now we're going to spend a week revisiting past glories; this time in the Florida Everglades. This clump of wild epiphytes are busy processing the nutrients of their host tree. Left to their own devices, too many of these little plants spreading across the tree will eventually overcome their host and the tree will die.

As viewed, shown in hdr processing. Previously posted in posterized mode here. Similarities and differences evident to my eye. Yours?

I like the spiral design in this image, and the processing is sharp like the reality of the plant. The posterized version suggests magic with the colors bought out. Fun photo subject.

I prefer this one over the posterized version, but the swirly lines are evident in both!
