[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this shot a few weeks ago, Easter Weekend. The weather was perfect and nature just began to wake up. Today, these all trees of Szentendre are beautifully green. I hope it fits well to this week's theme.
As I promised at one of my previous posts, I will present this Hungarian town a little bit later.

That is ONE scary tree there Kristof! It looks like a monster! Nice work on this, nice and sharp! I'll bet if you lowered lights and colored it a blue tint it would really look scary!

Hello Kristof,

The claw-like shadow makes a fine lead over the pebbly ground towards the real trees.
Fine perspective, good details and a good dof.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Ciao Kristof

I like the look of
dry trees, they are elegant
and the beautiful light and sets the light and shadows.
The shadow on the ground here is fantastic!
A pretty good definition of work and image.

Hello Kristof

I like the dappled shadow patterns in the fg. Good framing & a wonderful blue sky. Excellent graphism of the dark, leafless trees with reasonable sharpness. Tfs!

Szia Kristof!
Ez a fotod ismet azon a szep, meleg nyarias Husveti hetvegen keszult.. Szep formajuak a kopasz agas-bogas fak, amik csak egy kis napsutesre varnak es ahogy irod, mar zoldbe is borulnak, de az arnyekok talan meg hatasosabbak, foleg ez a kozeli...
Nem vagyok biztos benne, de mintha ez a fotod a katolikus templom teren keszult volna fenn, a dombon.
Jo hetveget kivanok!

Hi Kristof,

the shadow in the FG looks like a lady dancing ballet with the hands in front:) (dunnow how i saw it this way, it could be a ghost too, ok a ballet dancer ghost:))
superbe capture with great light/shadow, a perfect natural one, perspective is awesome and I like the contrast of dark branches against the blue sky and the sharp textures and details on the ground! nicely framed and an excellent contribution for the theme..

greetings and have a lovely WE

Hi Kistof,
Nice idea,good composition.
Best regards,

Isn't it amazing ? First you think that those trees are quit dead and that they will never start growing again and suddenly some little green leaves appear and the tree turns into a big green beauty. The shape of the branches makes a interesting shadow. TFS

regards, willie
