Hey Shirley

I like the shot but and grasp what you've been trying to show, but i think it would benefit from a bit more space around it, not quite as tight a crop. It would give a bit more of the feeling of it being solitary.
I like the contrast between the blue sky and the tree :)

I like the idea of a solitary tree but would appreciate it more if the image was a little bigger.:)

I keep looking at this and wondering "What am I missing?" OK I get the Solitary tree idea, but it's not that interesting as trees go; it's on a third, so that's OK, but what else is there to hold my interest?

So I look again, and still don't see anything like the level of composition, subject selection and quality of your previous submissions.

So please tell us what thoughts go with this image and what reaction you are trying to get, because I'm intrigued by this one.

Sorry to mangle your tree picture but here's a tweak ..

I am quite a fan of solitary tree images, and if the conditions allowed, I would have tried for a picture like this one. However maybe the sky was all wrong at the time etc etc. Easy to be wise after the event..

Sorry, screwed up and can't delete.

Well this seems the place for solitary trees!


I might re-shoot this with my E-1.

I think the problem is, as Susan says, there's nothing to show that the tree IS solitary. More space around it, with the tree to one side or t'other, (maybe as a panoramic shot) and the message may arrive!

Sorry, can't get the hang of this. Reduced the size of this tree pic to quite small, but it's blown up massive here, don't understand.:eek:
