[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot was taken shortly before the next rainy storm set in on a cold misty day in northern Germany.
I tried to capture the "bony skeleton" of the tree standing against the last shimmer of light coming through the clouds.
post processing: I just changed the picture to duo chrome so that a blueish colour disappeared and added a frame.
I hope you like it, Heike

Hi Heike,
I like the photo. A good work of backlighting.

Hallo Heike,
sehr schöne düstere, ja fast schon unheimliche Stimmung in deinem Bild. Sehr stimmungsvolles Licht und ein gelungener Versuch.
Viele Grüsse
