[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I shot this on Capones Island in Zambales, north of Manila. It is a beautiful small island surrounded by nice beaches.

I saw this lone tree on top the hill and was struck by it.

This was taken in RAW, converted to TIFF, adjusted levels and curves, converted to B&W using Hue/Saturation, sharpened, resized for TL and resharpened.

Thank you all!

The harsh contrasts makes this very interesting. Beautiful detail. The fine grass in the ridge is sharp. Composition has an Ansell Adams quality about it. Good work!

Awesome capture - I love the contrasting tones and the dramatic sky - creates a moody atmosphere. Great composition, point of view and perspective.

strong picture in black and white
beautiful dark colours and good composition
but i think u could crop it more at the upper part

I would have to agree with marc, chief, crop pa konti sa taas. Iba approach mo dto a. strong ang B/W. tfs


very great image, I like the contrast in here and tones, it is nice work and good choice for a black and white because cloudes look more dramatic then. The tree is so perfectly situated in the scene that it seems like a nice image for a story in a book.

hi pierre!
a very powerfull photo! great strong contrast!
i don't think u should crop it at the upper side. it express better how small and loneliness is that tree comparing with the infinite sky!
very well seen! congrats!
