From the archives. These pictures were taken with my old Kodak DX6440. It still captures great images to this day!

My eye is drawn to that fantastic tree in the first image...wonderful silhouette,



The seond one doesnt do much for me....it is lacking an area to draw the eye.

After another look at the first image, I have a few questions. Where was this taken?

The reason I ask is that it looks like what is known as a "trail tree". The native americans would bend a small sapling to the ground to mark a trail. These very often continued to grown into full grown trees with a similar shape to the one you have captured.

Tullio,

Like Vanessa, I found the first shot to be superior even tho the skies in the second is so attractive. I think the lamp post in the middle of the second shot tends to detract from the ambience of the setting.

Until Vanessae noted it the tree with the unusual branch went right past me. Interesting how things catch your attention.

Aloha

I agree with both of you. I too like the first one much better. I included the second shot simply because that sky looks pretty intense and yet ithas no PP at all. I was running a quick errand at the end of the day and when I left the car at the parking lot, I was amazed by the colors of the sky. Luckily I had my PaS in the car and managed to get the shot.
