Point of View

Yesterday I posted a Kokerboom (Quiver tree) in a desolate landscape. This is the view from the inside of that tree looking up.

I put my camera horizontal between the branches, selected the timer, stepped away and: "click", this is the result.

PP work: not much, adjusted only levels and curves, removed with clone tool small OE spot, resized used USM to sharpen and add frame.

Hi Hans,
A creative shot with this POV. A worm's eye view with artistry!
Very good illumination creating such an attractive rim lighting!
Great management in exposure and in DOF!
I like it!
My best regards,

Bonjour Hans

Quelle surprenante photo!!!
Le POV donne d'excellents effets!!
Lumière fantastique et belles couleurs!!
Bravo et TFS.

Hi Hans,

I would have not known that this is the same tree you featured yesterday. Lovely graphism created by the upward view showcasing the starlike branches. Well done and TFS.


Hello Hans

I'm going to try a workshop on this to bring out the shadow details. Good sharpness & upward pov. Tfs!

Very clever shot Hans! I love the original pov and the result is just stunning! Very well done! Thanks!


Boa tarde Hans,
Fantastic lights. I love this.
My warm compliments.

Wow, very cool shot Hans! Love the starry shaped leafs you caught from this impressive POV with F/16. I really feel like buying an wide-angle lens when I see great photos like this. My hat goes off to you, well done.
TFS and have a nice week!


Hi Hans,

I am back again . . I shot lots of photos, but rarely have time to upload it to TL . .
I've never seen this tree . . Unique but looks dangerous . .
It's a unique idea also capturing from below, showing different perspective about this tree . .
