Hi Silvio,
This must be your famous tree. I have seen you take many different photos of it and have to say that it is an impressive species. The tree has almost become too wide to capture. When will you be visiting it again?

You've controlled the exposure well considering the shadow in the front, the light hitting the cloud and snow.


Hello Silvio, you have shared this beautiful tree with us before, but this time from a slightly different PoV.It is the perfect shape for an oak tree.
The blue sky makes an excellent bg for the silhouette.
Good DoF.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Simple but effective composition! I like the dominance of the naked tree. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.

Bravo et amitié

Another designed by Silvio camera...
lovely and beautiful poster by great day-lights

Hello Silvio,
A fantastic image with the radiating branches capturing the eye and holding it for a while until one realises there are other elements too and how well they all work together. What a pleasure to view.

boa noite Silvo
So magestic your tree and the light make it shines so well
um abraço

Hi Silvio,

The road is sending my eye toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. It is well divided, the sky, the mountains and the tree. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.


bonjour Silvio
Une puissance qui semble éternelle
Petite route , grand arbre; l'une est une destination et l'autre est un destin
Bon week end

Hi Silvio, Interesting POV which let the naked tree dominates the frame. The blue sky acts great contrast to the composition. The thin snow covers the land gives nice winter mood. Splendid light and great sharpness. Best regards
