Pleasing composition, Aivar!
The landscape is captured with great colours and details, side lighting gives life to the place, and your filter works wonders in adding the final touch...

Great photo. Well composed and quite beautiful colour.

Hello Aivar,

I very much like your well composed and interesting image, my only nit is that you have not included some information with it.

A superb landscape with wonderful color, exposure, POV, and interesting focal point.

Great job, thank you!

Fantastic post - such a great landscape shot - straight to the publishers I'm sure... well done

Hi Aivar!
First of all, this is a point of view only an artist of your fine sensibilities can opt for. The positioning of all the features within the frame is just perfect, not to forget the time of the day you must have chosen to take this picture when the light is clearly at its best, casting long shadows and thereby intensifying the beauty of this monumental picture from Namibia.
Secondly, the quiver tree (something I have seen for the first time, frankly) here is not just a tree. It fills the vast landscape with a definitive meaning.
I admire your landscapes for what they convey beyond the manifest and the visible.
Warm regards.

Hi Aivar,
Outstanding landscape work! The composition and framing of the shot are perfect. Great use of the tree and bush in the foreground. Exposure is excellent in this setting sunlight that is soft and beautiful. Well saturated colors. DOF and clarity are very good. Nice work!

Bonsoir Aivar,
Une très belle composition pour ce paysage qui semble paisible. De belles couleurs et une netteté impeccable. Beau travail. Gérard

great landscape with great view!
Wonderful colours and very good POV!

this looks like if you staged the plants. very nice and excelent light. Ori

Hello Aivar
What a prehistoric looking tree. I love the unique looking bark with all it's textures. The colour is excellent, rich and vivid. It looks like it is blooming. I wonder how old this tree is? Questions... Questions :)
