Simple and nice nature landscape with good composition. You successfully use tire path road become leading line.   Posted: 06/12/2022 07:50:50

We all have are mighty trees and here is a prime example of a nations classic tree. I like your choice of angle as the second tree sits so well in the frame, the use of the road is strong. Your control of the image is very good and lovely colour. Very pleasing image to view.   Posted: 06/15/2022 10:08:47

Wonderful picture of trees on the prairies. Are they Adansonia Digitata? I never saw in reality but many times in movies. From the diameter of the tree it seems having hundreds years of age.   Posted: 06/15/2022 16:57:10

That's a stunning photograph. The rich textures of trees and grass suggest a kind of wildness of nature. The dirt road and tire tracks provide great leading lines. And the colors of dark blue sky with sunrise along the horizon add a haunting element.   Posted: 06/15/2022 21:47:39

great landscape picture, which with the road leading into the picture and the offset trees represent a fine composition with depth. The light gives a lovely landscape with successful colors. I like the picture very much.   Posted: 06/18/2022 10:46:24
