'No tricks'.....I have used no PP to add this shocking pink tree to the scene, this is exactly how I saw it!

We were visiting a local house to see their annual art exhibition, and walking between two centres where the pictures were displayed, we had to walk across a field,and this was the view that met our eyes.

It is certainly an eye catcher.Just imagine if trees were always this colour, for real.

Thanks for looking.

P.S. Since posting this shot I have learnt that this is Henry Bruce's Delamore Pink Tree Art Installation.
He wanted to raise awareness of a fungal disease affecting trees across the country.The tree is a 300 year old oak tree.Henry spent 2 weeks working on the 21m high tree, which is suffering from decay in the grounds of the Delamore Estate.

Hi Jean

Lol! At first glance loomks like an optical illusion. They must use ladders to get uop so high! Good downward pov into the valley with the green backdrop being the perfect opposite color. Tfs & have a nice Sunday!

Dear Jean,

Is it a strawberry tree? ;-)

I like the idea of pink-colored painted tree against an environment with normal trees.
The picture is sharp and light is very well done. POV and DOF are well done.
Good job.


Hi Jean, well Jean, you recommend to trust my eyes - it is a nice addition to the natural setting - and the picture is well done.
But, - was it difficult to move this tree - did you hire a moving truck or how did you do it - does it belong to the annual Art Exhibition .......
Have a great weekend - kind regards - Monika

Looks like its an immigrant from Mars ! Nicely framed and composed. The day looks a little hazy.

Hi Jean,
A curious pink tree in this lovely landscape. Beautiful green tones and such quietness of this rural ambient.
The pink tree seems like an 'out of this world' piece of art!
An interesting capture and worth sharing it!
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Très belle vue e tiamge, il y a un arbre rose dans cet ensemble comme cela est original sueprbe cpmpo quel contraste et iamge quelle vue sur cette végétation sueprbe iamge et captage.

bravo et amitié


Well maybe you should do more PP work. Here the lack of contrast, et the haze makes it a little dull. Slightly over exposed.
Decisive moment?

Done a workshop to let you see, what can be achieve in 15 secondes.

I love it! This is awesome and nicely captured. They also have trees painted pink in Las Vegas but they are in a shopping mall. Beautiful country scene completed with real cows (I hope). Very well done, tfs.

Boa noite Jean,

Beautiful green tones, excllente POV, contrast and light.
Well done and framed.
