I was walking down a path at the park with my wife and dog. The sun was shining bright. We came upon a small opening in the woods where one tree protected our eyes when we looked up. I had my Canon EOS 5D with me at the time and fired off a couple shots.

this shot is awesome, I love how you did this! great job and should have been much higher. you should look at this tutorial. It will show you what to do to get your photos ready for challenges. Your photo is 80 kb and the max allowable is 150 kb. That means all those small artifacts that someone mentioned would have been much smoother and less noticeable. amazing shot. well done.

This is pretty with the use of natural lighting to its advantage and the centered subject here works real nice.

what an interestng angle. I like the contrast of the tree with no leaves in the midst of the other trees. I don't see it as a dead tree but very animated and very much alive.

magical! Awesome how you got the silhouette but still maintained the brilliant blues and greens that surrounds. Great job!

Wow! I like it.... my only curiousity, is why are there square-shaped artifacts in the image?
