A lonely tree

On my Utah jaunt this year, I had the opportunity to visit Canyonlands in eastern Utah. This lonely tree caught my eye.

P.S. I liked the BW version as my arty piece. So here tis.

Re: A lonely tree

5-star photo, Janet. I thought I'd add some character to the sky before doing my painterly.

Re: A lonely tree

Janet, here is a 10 minute edit to black and white. First I selected and copied the sky to a new layer and lighten it a bunch. Then I used the channel mixer to convert to B and W. I used low red high blue and med green. Then I dodged the tree trunk and the deep shawdows in the rocks to pull out the details. Good shot by the way. Ony thing I might have done different is to get a tighter shot....

You mean like this...?

I liked the horizontal shot better. Great thing about art though, everyone likes something different. I'm glad you liked the tree and that you showed your version. Keep up the good work.

Janet

Re: A lonely tree

No,not really. I lke the landscape orientaion better. I just meant getting closer to the tree so its more the subject. Just my opinion though.
