[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another picture from my day at the Veluwezoom National Park.
When I took this one, it had just started to rain, so the sky looks very grey here.
But I liked the atmosphere about it, the one bald tree, the grey sky, it actually felt a bit creepy at the time :-)

The Veluwezoom National Park is five thousand acres wide and it is one of the largest nature areas in the Netherlands. It has a rich diversity of woodland, heath and areas of shifting sand and it accommodates a large variety to plants and animals. In 1930, the Veluwezoom got the status of national park as a first nature area in the Netherlands. National park Veluwezoom is part of the veluwe.

Hoi Nel,
Echt Nederlands weer zeg. heb je wel uitgekeken dat je camera droog bleef? De kleuren in de heide en bomen zijn erg mooi. De dode boom, die erg bijzonder van vorm is, had ik liever iets meer uit het centrum gezien. Welke fotobewerkingsoftware gebruik je? Qua contrast en helderheid kun je nog iets doen om de foto iets meer sfeer te geven.

Hello Nel,
That dead tree makes a strong impact as it is silhouetted against the foggy background!
Well composed image, elements are nicely balanced and with good lines...
Colours are a bit muted as they should be on a dull day like this!

Thanks for educating me via your GREAT notes.
Love the way you captured that lifeless tree to blend into your main subject, the "park."
Love also the balanced contrasts.
Well composed & presented.

Hi Nel,

Very nice shot and the composition with the dead tree is excellent. Well done Nel.
