Daily Deviation

Given 2012-10-27
This picture has always been a source of inspiration for me as a photographer and there are many reasons why. The composition is simply brilliant, the contrast is great, the timing was perfect for the capture and the concept is some how comforting.

It is great to see how such stillness can give such sense of movement only by the flowing of the picture and the delicacy of the elements in the picture. A landscape like this one is always refreshing, no matter how many times you see the picture.

The tree appears as the sole protagonist of this story, making up for a very strong picture of a very calm moment.

This is really a stunning picture. The green field and the sun that is coming from the sky is defiantly a favourite piece in this picture; the ground is so clean and has a very bright green colour. When the light is coming from the sky all I can think off is hope. Believe it or not there are pictures like this that could fix a broken heart, just by looking at it. This picture makes me wonder if there is a story behind it, it just make the picture more and more interesting. It’s great that the sun is shinning on the tree, it makes the picture more pure and that a lonely three isn’t so much alone after all. This made me think that someone is watching over the tree.

I think the black frame doesn’t fit in this picture, if you took a brighter colour to the frame I think it might have worked,but it would have been better if the frame wasn’t there. The picture isn’t very sharp, I wish it was sharper that we could se more details from sky, ground and the main point; the tree. Since there are so many pictures like this you have to make sure it’s a special one, which you have done. But it doesn’t matter if the picture isn’t that sharp, because when a person stops to look at a picture, then you know that you have done it marvellous.

You have done an amazing job and you really got the talent. I also want to remark that the composition is great!
All in all this pictures just make my heart stop a little in a good way.

Thank you for sharing your photos with us and keep doing the great job that you do.

If you think this is weather, you should see Kansas weather. It was 30 degrees this morning at 730. At 330 pm it was like 60.

The sun peeking through the gray clouds is absolutely stunning. And the fact that the light is pointed directly at the lonely tree means you took the picture at the perfect moment. Great job. :)

Beautiful use of colour and light minimalist composition. Well worthy of a DD, but why did it take so long?

I'm always thinking that photography is really hard, and they make it easy for everyone so that every photo is a great photo. But there is something special about what you see, and really this picture brings me some feelings of hope when I suffered from depression, it's like for this tree, and you just got an amazing picture right there.

If someone was dead, this picture would bring them back to life.

Know what this reminds me of?
The final level in Zelda: Majora's Mask. It was very similar-looking.

Reminds me of a gloomier Windows XP background without the tree.

Wow, this has been in my favourites for over 6 years now.
This daily deviation is so long overdue.

But better late than never, right?

talkingtina7 Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2012
Pretty photo! Great detail and composition. I love the way the clouds opened up to shine on that lonely tree as if to give it hope against the dark all around it. Great job.
