[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A small tree growing in the cleft of a split granite boulder. Taken in the late afternoon, hence the slight red tinge to the light.

Minimal post processing, just cropped slightly, contrast increased very slightly, resized, sharpened.

This is beautiful, Kate, and I think this lonely tree looks even more lonely because of the huge sky you are presenting as well with the beautiful cloudscape. It makes the tree looks tiny. Also, very hardy tree, growing on its own between two big boulders. Nice colours & sharpness. Excellent!

Hello Kateb!
This is a beautiful composition. Great Pov. I really enjoy the contrasts of the colors and the fullness of the textures. It's great.

Very good composition..like your choice of vertical format here which enhances the vastness and makes the tree looks more lonely. I like the warm erth tones of the boulders. Nice work. TFS
-A very good add for the Scav Hunt.

I can say it is perfect...

thanks a lot for sharing this great pic with us...

Wonderful composition Kate, the lateness of the shot really adds to the effect. Great POV. TFS.

Attractive view with the high sky and the single objects; nice colouring.
Good to compose the tree/rock in this wide view. Thanks Kate

Beautiful shot Kate. I love the ocre and green foreground that cuts sharply with the sky. And this little tree in the middle of the rock makes all the difference. Excellent POV and composition.

Great shot Kate, perfect composition, colours and Light.
Thanks for sharing.

The nature is fantastic. Really great.

Nice one, Kate :) The big space for sky reinforce the impression of isolation of your little tree. Well done!

It's amazing what little soil plants can grow on.
I think you managed to make that quite clear with this beautifull shot.
Taken from the right angle (level).
Good colours and nice compo.
