Hang on, Ol' Soldier. by darkrune Hang on, Ol' Soldier. by darkrune
Yet ANOTHER photo of a lone tree standing while the turmoil goes on about it. This one was taken in a little town called Prospect, Oregon.

As for the name...those of you who know me well should know i have a slight obsession over things martial.

The title and the composition donít mesh in my mind. So I've decided that the picture is from this Ol' Soldier's view. I think I'm getting to into the emotions and meanings behind it instead of the actual shot. If looking at this piece without thinking about a soldier on the verge of death, I donít really like it. Not too aesthetically pleasing. That may be because the darkness and sheer multitude of surrounding elements (i.e. the rocks) confuse me. But when added to the emotions and meanings, it's a decent piece.

i like the colors in it.. and the concept is well thought out!! But if the tree is supposed to be the focal point, you should try to tone down the bright white spot (water on the right side) because it's tat point that attracts all the attention. (just my opinion)

You're right there about the white spot taking up the attention.

I was using a crappy point-and-shoot film camera for this shot and the original photo was extremely dark and it took me awhile to brighten everything without making it look odd.

I'll keep in mind of such details next time, thanks.

I really like this shot. The colors are great. I can almost feel what it would be like standing there. My favorite part of the shot is the color of the lone tree. First I noticed the waterfall, then my eyes were drawn to the tree, and it became the obvious focal point of the photo. Truly, a really beautiful shot.

ooh, I love waterfalls. I just can't find many around here. It's a little dark, but very nicely done

Great focal point on the tree. The vivid green really stands out from the darkness of the rocks and the blue-ish white of the rushing water. Nice framing. Great job!

if you actually met a lot of chinese people, you'd realize it isn't that chinese to be obsessed with things martial. it's very chinese, on the other hand, to be obsessed with tradition.

Yes, yes, yes. But it's a joke man...kinda like saying that all Cubans are obsessed with swimming and extasy (however that's spelled).

But at least this tree is surrounded by water and not a bunch of mexican construction workers with heavy machinery.

nice capture! :D i like how the tree is there all by itself, almost look like a someone placed it there on purpose, and of course, the waterfall looks good to jump right into ;)
