those roots cud have been cropped a bit

the colors and textures are awsome in this shot bro :)
i love the rich deep colors

i don't mind the roots, cause the form interesting shapes and tones
but the horizon seems a little tilted :)

What a stunning photo...love the colours and all. Love the angle of capture. Would love to be in a place like that.

Lovely textures and the tree looks massive! The people do give us a sense of scale. Have to agree with Koh on the tilt other than that a fine picture. TFS

Another nice picture from your trip to the Mauritius, Mervyn. Nicely composed with the tree & its roots as the main subject here with the cloudscape adding a lot of nice effect to it. The tilt might have been planned because then the roots are straight - am I right? Nice sharpness & coloures. Well done!

good work..i would like to know, wich filter used and did flash fired? congr.

Talisman I love this image, the softness and color of it, but your horizon is way off. I did a workshop for you to compare with it straightened. Peace, B

So nice composition Talisman, feel like im sitting under that tree and watching the beautiful scenery... It only needs tilt to make paralel the horizon line.Beautiful strong colors!

Great shot. I like the tilt of the horizon it makes it unique. Sometimes if a picture is not technically correct it makes for a better picture verses one that is. It gives it an abstract appearance. I would have liked it without the people in it but you really canít do much about that.

Super textures and contrasts, really nicely done. TFS and points later


very nice place, great photo. I like the colors especially. blue,brown,green - it's nice.

maybe you should have straighten it , there's something wrong withe the horizon. or maybe it's just my monitor ( hope not head) :)))
