Novice grade open........"Giant" by Goldie Walker........Accepted
This is an interesting shot of this tree, I've seen something very similar at Lake Sylvan at the head of lake Whakatipu. The vignetting treatment here lets you down though as it's a bit harsh and the contrast between that and the vertical borders lets you down. The depth of field is good and the light has been handled quite well overall as shooting in trees with filtered light is difficult. Overall the colour seems a bit off though with a greenish tinge. Accepted.
