Furrowed Brow by not-in-my-lifetime Furrowed Brow by not-in-my-lifetime
Original photo run through curves to try and accentuate the furrows and bleach out the sky and bring out the tones, which I love - no other manipulation done.

Enjoy :)

You seem to have alot of comments here, I'm not really sure if mine matters or not, but seeing as everyone is different maybe it would be good to say something, just because..

I quite like the pattern of the earth, it reminds me of the sea. A great wave forming below, followed by the true organic solidity of the soiled earth.

Again Bridget Riley comes to mind, and I'm just trying to understand what place the tree actually has in this picture, because on one hand I can see that it works, and on the other hand it seems to be a question...

Not that is really matters again, but I like to imagine myself inside a picture sometimes when I view it, with this one I could really consider laying on the beautiful organic earth, but the question that comes to mind is - Would it be safe, as that moving wave could take me, well who know's !!!

There may be many comments, but few if any are as thought out and detailed as yours, so to start off with... thanks for the comment! :)

I must say I like your interpretation of the earth as rolling waves - it gives the photo more movement and, I confess, is not something I had seen before. As for lying on the furrowed sea... sometimes you've just got to go with the flow. Maybe the tree could even act as an anchor to stop you flowing too far?

Had a look at some Bridget Riley stuff on the net. Very geometrical, playing with flowing patterns. Although this is something I have been moving away from a little of late, patterns are the first thing that I notice when in photographer mode. The only reason I am trying to move away from it is to focus more on some kind of distinct subject rather than offer a complete abstraction.

Maybe that explains the presence of the tree - it gives a context and focal point without detracting from the most striking element of the picture (i.e. the furrows). Whatever, personally I think it works better with than without.

:)
