"LONE PINE" by MARTIN KOHN; Grade: Acceptance
Yes, the remnants of a pine tree which to me, spoils a particularly good land and skyscape image. Great lighting on the clouds above and foggy layers streaming across the hills on the right. Lovely colour too in this image from the late light. I think that a viewpoint to the left or right of the tree to eliminate it would have made this a better image. Yes, I like it as a scene, but the tree, or what is left of it interrupts the view for me. also, use of a lens hood is advisable at times, as there is some lens flare in the right of the image.
