Hello Pedro,
What a fine shot of this beautiful Joshua Tree. Even though you had some pretty harsh light to deal with you did very well on the exposure. Colors are well saturated yet natural and focus is sharp throughout entire frame.
I still vividly remember the first time I saw one of these unique looking trees out west. Rosie and I were driving through California and spotted some along the highway. We had no idea at the time what type of trees they were, so we finally asked some people at a rest stop:} TFS.

great capture , in the "sea" of succulents, TFS Ori

Hola Pedro! Amazing tree. Wonderful Joshua Tree. Do You remember CD by U2? Fantastic scenery and background. Marvelous colours. Good take. Well done!
