I'm developing a set of tree pictures

I love them. This one is beautiful. Had a thought. Could you take is closer (avoid the street lamp) and then use a wider lens? I feel there is even a fisheye shot in there. rectilinear would work. and you have that 10mm. Curious.

Yer momma didn't raise no fool - that indeed is a tree!

But what species is it?

Thanks for sharing Dave.

I like it.

Would love to see it in a square crop though, with the treee smack in the middle. I know it goes against rule of 3rds and leading lines into a pic and all that, but reckon it would work well with that subject.

B&W treatment looks great too.

Thanks cupic - yes it does. In summer the Sun sets right behind it. Makes for some nice shots.

Thanks Jeff. I was going to classify it as a rock but I looked through some Google images and decided it did look more like that thing they call Tree. What species ? Leafless I think

The branches are interesting and the B+W conversion is cleverly done.


I would love a bit more grain

Interesting shot. I have a tree I always say I want to shoot that is on the trip between my home and where I was raised. It is now a must shoot

Dave, I am glad to learn that I am not the only one with trees I like. That one is something
special and your shot is a good one.

Thanks James - grain would indeed give it an older feel will look into that.

Very nice Dave. I really like the overall balance, and that's an outstanding B&W conversion IMHO.

Wow Dave,
that's really neat. I love the B&W conversion everything looks just very harmonic.
Great Shot.
