Default Trees Leaning Over The Sea

I have posted this shot taken at the Gargano region of Italy to better show what I meant with the previous shot "Tree leaning over the sea".

As usual a polarizer lens has been used.



P.S. :
- cropping
- automatic levels
- automatic contrast
- some curve correction

I love it, plain and simple. I love how white some of the section of the cliff are. Great contrast on the colouring!

On a side note, these forums are great! Why did I not join up sooner!

Kinda Margaret Bourke White (one of my favourite photographer) risky positions ?


Well, no , sorry.
The "Tree" shot has been taken in a different and safer (almost) location.

However,it's true, in order to take this shots (and the ones that will follow) I had to climb up wild paths....stay tuned !

Nice white cliff and green trees.

This topic made me think of a couple shots I got of a tree on a beach. Hope you don't mind if I join in the fun since it's not a very common topic.

First time I found it, so the light and sky are boring.



Went back a couple days later for the sunset. Was a little late, but got some shots.

Sergio,

I found this shot of the leaning trees more enjoyable than the earlier version which did not give quite the same perspective showing the tenuous nature of the trees on the cliff.

Tuell,

Obviously the second shot has more warmth and catches the eye far more readily. However, this shot compresses the distance between the beach and the distant mountains too much IMO. So the dramatic impact of the sun setting on mountains in the distance is lessened. Am I making any sense or merely prattling on? In any event good effort.

Aloha
