nice shot, you used the sun to your advantage.

lens flare works well for this shot

I love the angle that you shot this from and the "star" of light. Very well done.

Really nice. Offers the viewer the feel of really tall, nicely done. I got no idea how to improve this shot, or even if it needs improvement. It's less than a "jump out and get you" subject, but there is appeal, so that's really all I can say constructive or other. Photo 9 Creativity 6 B&W 8 total 7

Sun star makes it a lot more interesting.

Good job of incorporating but limiting the sun flare.

Do you know what kind of pine this is? I have a similar shot somewhere of a Monterey Pine we planted after Christmas when I was about 10 -- it's thick branches start much lower than these...

I like the tones of this. Are getting any comments about the tree being too dark? It looks great to me. Bery good texture on the bark. This would make a nice print.

Great use of light. Did you use a star filter? Very good contrast IMO. The tree kind of cuts the shot right up the middle, but I am not sure you had a lot of choice about that to maintain context. I gave this one an 8.

Cool shot. Not that you could have controlled it, but if the branches on the left weren't there I think it would be better.

the sun is a nice 'touch' in this.
06/04/2002 10:39:00 PM
tall is right! great angle, makes it look a mile up! good job.
06/04/2002 10:38:00 PM
Nice shot! The lens flare adds a nice touch to this one... :)

i love this. the angle is awesome and i tried to get the same flare on my own picture, but it doesn't really work on a cloudy day!:) great shot.

Not a terribly exciting subject, but good texture in the bark of the tree and good contrast between branches and sky. Like the sunburst.

Good that you held some detail in the dark shadows of the tree. I wouldn't mind a little more, though, esp. at R.
06/04/2002 12:03:00 AM
nice shot. i like the positioning of the sun in this photo.
06/03/2002 09:08:00 PM
nice angle with sun in back ground
06/03/2002 07:43:00 PM
Nice picture. The lower left smaller tree is distracting, though
06/03/2002 07:19:00 PM
Great perspective. Perfect placement of the sun. Very well done.
06/03/2002 05:56:00 PM
Effective backlighting... very good job.
06/03/2002 04:08:00 PM
Neat shot.
06/03/2002 12:43:00 PM
good tonal range
06/03/2002 06:27:00 AM
Great shot!! I especially liked how you captured the sun and the height of the tree!! Well done!
