Strolling along the beach, I found this lone tree at hidden at the farthest end. Went back late in the afternoon to take this photo.

I don't see this as a centered composition. There is really nothin at the center.

The processing enhances the mood of this shot.

This is a nice shot overall. Has anyone told you yet that your horizon is tilted? :P I think the strong leading lines of the water channel and rocks take the viewer off-center some, meaning that this doesn't feel that centered. A polarizer may have helped to control that sky a little.

Now that I look a bit closer I notice some strong haloing around the tree and the upper rocks, yet the photo doesn't seem oversharpened. Been playing around with HDR/Tonemapping a little perhaps? :D

Good luck in the challenge.

I don't see that this tree is in the center?

Beautiful. Love the perspective and the colors are amazing. Although, the tree isnt centered.

Nice picture, well done, but off center to me.

This is a beautiful photograph - not sure that it really could be called a centered composition (indeed it seems to follow the rule of thirds), but it is so lovely that I am marking it high. Had it been a true 'centered composition' it would have got a 10 from me - but there again it wouldn't have been the same photograph - hmmm...
Oh, and certainly adding it to my favourites.

Yep ... that's a 10 all right!

Not sure if anything is really centered here, but it's a beautiful shot.

i like the look of this one a lot - the superwide angle really pulls the image to the surreal

this would have been a great photo if cropped the bottom off of it.

Lovely ... scores higher if the tree is actually in the center.
01/03/2007 12:58:11 PM
beautiful image, but the tree isn't really in the center of the shot.
