Just an experiment to catch direct sunbeam using tree as motif. It was a shear coincidence that December sky was clear and no streaks of jets, so I didn't truncate the sky.

Hi Inaam,

I like this composition, particularly the light and the different forms we can see. Here, in the left, I love the geometrical ones, which are bringing our eyes one the center, composed by the light of this beautiful sun. The trees are accentuating the charism and the poetical atmosphere of this place, their aspect is very original and uncommon.
I just noticed the shadows on the ground and these ones are also pointing the sun, all the elements of your picture are focusing the sun, it's very interesting.


Hello Inaam,

This is an interesting experiment that turns out to be a beautiful battle between light and darkness, I like it.

Best regards

Hi Inaam,
What a superb example of contre-jour photography! Great light management and a nice semi-silhouetted trees casting a pleasant shadow in the FG.
A very neat presentation with such good artistry.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hello Inaam :)

Seized magnificently sun for the tree which it created shadows
and gave very interesting light and colours.
Fantastic work and very showy realization...congratulations!

Best wishes.

A very successful experiment! Shooting against the sun is hard to do and get a good result. But you did well. Tfs.

Hello Inaam

Very hard to find a sky without contrails these days. I like the dark greens in the composition. Good POV and use of available light.


hi Inaam great shot

Hello Inaam,

Beautiful late afternoon here, where
the sun is the star veiled beyond the tree.
Seductive silhouettes and beautiful wall art perspective.
Pleasant image, thank you for sharing.
Kind regards

Hi Innam,
A lovely photo. I like the effect that you created. It is nice to something unusual for a change other than the same standard "point-and-shoot" variety of photos. Well done.
