[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A shot taken just some two hours ago within a field between the villages of Bourglinster and Junglinster. I never tried this before, but when I saw the tree i mmedately felt like having to shot it. It was allready very dark. The grass in the foreground was lightned by the full moon in my back.

Camera was in 200 iso mode, RAW, manual focus (too dark for AF).
No big PP: white balance, a small curve correction, and of course framing.

Hello Mike,

Good composition, the light is good, i'm not decided if to shot throw the grass was good or not i can say that it disturb me a little bit. What would have been the result if you had taken it from higher ? Anyway the picture is good. TFS.

Bonjour Mike,
Voilà une photo qui n'est pas sans rappeler l'oeuvre du peintre Magritte. C'est une très belle composition que tu nous présentes ici. Bravo.
Meilleures salutations

Beautiful shot. I love the rich blues and the POV is terrific. Thank you for sharing.

Ciao Mike scatto eccezionale. Sogno da anni di fotografare un sogno. Questa immagine sembra uscita da un sogno. Bellissima.
