[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken at Pasdong, Atok, Benguet, Philippines. Pasdong is where the Amburayan River takes its root. I took the image because the mountain where the tree stands only has that tree on it due to continuous burning of trees for conversion to farm lands.

Hi Jessy
Welcome to TL. This is quite well thought of and composed
picture for someone who has started taking picture only from
April 2009. The tree is well placed and diagonal straight takes
you to the main subject. I also like that touch of grassy
surface of the slope. My only concern would be that small patch
on the top right corner (cloud?). That could have been cleaned
to give a neater look to the picture.
A wonderful start...wish you happy learning here on TL

Welcome to TL. I really like your first posting. The single tree on the dramatic diagonal makes a strong image. Since there is very little colour in the shot I wonder if it would have more impact if you converted it to black and white.
I hope this is the first of many successful TL postings.

Welcome to TL, beautiful minimalistic shot, very well composed, the tree seems really to be alone

Hello Jessy,
A very original composition, simple and effective with a great graphic impact.
An other version in WS.
Welcome on TL !!!
Kind regards

Minimalism works. BR Joerg
