[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken on Tuesday morning just before another mad dash around the country (600miles in 2 days and 1 consultants appointment), this was taken at 5:45am...

It's the tree in the field outside my house. A very familiar object and one that always gets the attention of my camera especially if there is a good sunrise.

Taken almost directly into sun (yeh - I know, its a no-no, but it works stunningly when you can pull it off), this is almost the entire frame, (I had to zoom in a long way to exclude the sun). I had the camera set to underexpose by -1EV to account for the directly into sun bit....

Taken in RAW, converted to jpeg, cropped resized sharpened. Colours are real and totally untouched, no filters, nothing (not even a tripod - it was already in the boot of the car... - it and the camera go everywhere... learnt the hard way, even if it is only to photo everyones car regs in the event of a road accident...

Will catch up on critiques etc on Monday - too busy this weekend... sorry

Ok, this one seems a tad dark on my screen, the one I processed it on, it was OK on. How is it for everyone else?

Nice tone and relaxed warm feel to this..

Hi Emma!
This is a beauty.
Thanks for sharing.

Looks great Emma! I really like winter trees, without their leaves, against interesting skies like this one. It is alomst monochrome.


Hi Emma,
I like the yellow-orange colortones and the simple composition. This barren tree looks great in silhouette, against the orange sky.
Well done!

Hi Emma,
Doesn't look dark at all to me. I think it is spot on. I am just amazed how well you kept the details in the little twigs of the tree closesed to the sun. I alsways seem to have trouble with it.

Hello Emma,
Lovely shot! I like it's simplicity a lot. Great, not too vivid colours too.
