[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi all! Here's a shot I took a few hours ago in Pellinge (outside Porvoo in Finland) at sunset. This tree was meditating on the cliff so I just had to take a low angle and take some snaps of it.

Hope you like it. Comments and critiques are welcomed.

Hi Paavo,
Beautiful colours here, such a peaceful scene. Nice to include the last piece of the sun, it adds some depth. Great work.

This is a very nice image. It has lovely colors and a wonderful simple composition. Did you add the vignetting in pp or was it a result of the lens you used? It works well for this photograph.

superb timing..
superb light and tones..
nice composition..
sun and the tree's hands are magnificent here


Cracking shot Paavo, great low light management and composition. Well done.

Meditating indeed- I can hear the tree saying, "Oommmmmm..." as it stretches its arms to embrace the feeble sun.
