[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a photograph I took for a landscape assignment for a photography class I had. This large tree sits on top of a hill in the middle of a farm field. The corn around the tree had recently been shelled. This photo was taken about 10 minutes before the sun came up to the horizon line. I was looking to keep the scene very uncluttered. Not much for scenery around were I live, central Illinois is as flay as it gets. Mostly cultivated farmland.

This is a beautiful silhoette against the stunning colors of the sunrise.

Very well done and thanks for posting.

The ultra dark blacks form an excellent base line for this image with its gently change colour hues in the sky.

Plain, simple and striking. Such a nice capture. Well done. Great shot!

Great beautiful moment you have captured with your shot. The composition is perfect, the red & orange sky with the clouds looks very clear, and the rest of the sky is also very sharpness, very good DOF. The contrast of the black earth and the black tree with the BG is very good obtained. I like to see this image, it gives space to my eyes and also calm. Very pleasant. Thanks for sharing it Scott.

Nice framing, nice colors. Too much grey on the top but I like it anyway.

I like the regular shape of this tree, and how you've placed it in the frame. Dual sky colors are beautiful, and the whole image is very well exposed. Very fine branches details around the tree shape are also very good, as well as the sky colors seen by thru it. Very well done, Scott

I can't beleive I haven't seen this shot until now.
This is a fantastic capture Scott. Beautiful colours.
It's a must for the favourites
Thanks for posting

Hi Scott
Still busy trying to catch up on my long overdue backlog so I am still visiting some of your earlier postings to deliver a couple of well deserved smiley’s.
What a magic sunrise. The silhouette of this tree together with the stunning colours created great impact. The composition is superb and the exposure was perfectly managed.
Great work and TFS.

Hello Scott!
I like this image a lot not only because it happened to be taken on my 44th birthday. Seems like you're pretty much happy with the shot but not too excited, because there's nothing to the sunrise other than the lone tree? Would you rather like not to be able to see the sunrise because anywhere you go there's trees around you? Welcome to NYC suburbs, the earliest you can see the sun is when it rises above the tree line. Not really the best place to shoot sunsets and sunrises...

dear Scott ,
this is quite silence.
spectacular , clean and splendid.
i love it.
thanks my friend
