Beautiful picture, i like this feeling of zen and quiet…
Oh boy. This is unbelievable. I love the detail, the framing, the tones.. I think it’s perfect.
This is perfect indeed! Love the composition. T me it almost looks like a diorama : ) Great detail!
Anne, is that vignetting on purpose? I think it adds to the picture here but it’d be a shame if your camera is always doing that to you. Nice shot otherwise — I can’t decide if I want more foreground or not. I like it.
So much different textures happening in this image. Wonderful tones, perfect composition. Fantastic photo, it took my breath away when I opened it. Thanks

This deserves to be on an important person’s wall. Just amazing. The contrast and lighting and mood and… and… and!!! WOW! Spectacular job.
Stellar in b/w – shades of Ansel Adams…
Je me souviens …
I think many people would try very hard to get everything in focus, but keeping the horizon out of focus (whether purposely or not) keeps your attention on the main subject.
I too was reminded strongly of Ansel Adams on this one. The clarity of the details in the foreground really evoke his work.
I definitely prefer this picture to the original lone tree shot. The B&W is much more effective here than the color of the other, and the tree itself is much more interesting to look at.
This is just a magnificent photo.
The Ansel Adams vibe runs strongly through this photo, and the comments! I really like this one. It’s easily my favorite shot of the Lone Tree series.
wow! the detail on the trunk is almost unreal! one of the best i’ve seen so far. this is gonna inspire me to do more black and white.

This photograph is spectular! I’m blown away by the tones, the detail, the depth…it’s just amazing. Amazing…
Fantastic shot, I agree with the Ansel Adams comments. The vignette is a perfect partner to this shot, I think it was in Ansel’s book ‘The Print’ that he recommended burning in the corners of all your prints so that the eye is attracted even more on the subject.
Love this picture. It’s So “Ansel Adams”. The grey tones are so soft… I just disliked the vingetting.
