About the Image(s)

Tech Info: Nikon D2x with 24-120mm at 24mm, ISO 200, 1/1000 @ f8. Converted to monochrome using Nik Silver Efexs, with a standard conversion but using a red filter to bring out the sky a little more.

This is an older image from the Smoky Mountains at Cades Cove, a favorite tree that I like to photography, I thought the framing work with the tree.

Jeffrey, this is a lovely image. I particularly like how you've framed the tree and left the foreground dark. It draws the eye to the tree and dramatic sky. Nicely done. ...seems I'm going to have to plan a trip to the Smoky Mountains, as I've seen so many beautiful images from that area - it makes me want to go.   Posted: 02/06/2021 09:29:28

The Smoky Mountains is a great place to photograph, a lot to shoot from mountains, waterfalls, and coves, all within a moderate drive. I have been going there for over 20 years. Great in both Springtime and in Fall.   Posted: 02/15/2021 10:47:55

Nice one Jeff. Yes, mono is best IMHO. I Also like the way the outside trees go towards the empty parts of the center tree.   Posted: 02/14/2021 18:49:05

I like your use of natural framing. Technically, everything is very well done: focus, exposure and clarity. For me, though, there isn't quite enough interest.   Posted: 02/15/2021 11:28:02

I think you a right, it is probably the memory of the event that makes the image work for me. Thanks for the honest feedback, I appreciate it.   Posted: 02/15/2021 11:56:13

I have to agree with Cindy but I've also had the pleasure of seeing a lot of you Smokey Mountain images and the old cabins, water and mountains. I do like the framing.   Posted: 02/20/2021 16:04:35
