[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture was taken on my way from Maputo to Swaziland, there a lot of this type of trees in the Southern Africa but unfortunately I do not have their name yet if someone could help me with it I appreciate it, the curious thing about it, is after reaching certain height the leaves start getting a flat shape on the top giving us the ilusion that someone cut them straight.

Hi Nelson,
Nice shot of this natural vegetation of a dry climate area. Yes, structure of the tree canopy is aesthetic. Nice soft colors picture.

Hermoso árbol en solitario...bonito el contraste con la tierra removida de la carretera en primer plano.

Hi Valentino :)
Nicely composed shot showing the characteristic "flat-top" look of these trees. Good detail, exposure, and the border treatment works well :)
Have a nice weekend!

This vegetation is interesting and very typical for this part of the world...
Well composed image with good details, natural colours!

Hola Nelson,
Me gusta mucho como has hecho el marco y la perspectiva con que tomaste la foto, pero pienso que no está nítida y está movida o fuera de foco.

Hello Nelson,
Nice showing of this tree. You showed its beautiful form and shape. Composition and pov are great. Well done and TFS.

Hi Nelson,
Excellent composition with a good feel of depth. Interesting shapped tree which really seems to be common for this kind of environment.

I really like the softness of this photo Nelson. I like the one dominate tree with the shape repeated in the background. TFS

Excelente disparo típico arbol de la sabana africana, buen detalle y excelente pov... saludos

Your point ov view and the leading line to the right adds punch to the composition. It is truely an african setting and it looks very similar to where I stay. The sharpness of the tree in thr front could imporve a bit but I still like the compo. Well done.

Hello Nelson
Il est trčs beau ce paysage avec cette savane et ses arbres rabougris en arričre plan,et son arbre au centre et ce beau ciel bleu.J'aime beaucoup cet arbre seul a l'avant plan.Trčs belle composition
Merci et au revoir...JP
