Award Shortlist   

After the Storm

By BertC  
Captured during a days photo-shoot with my two elder brothers Joe (epz nick: KingArthur)& Edwin (epz nick: edcat), which we thoroughly enjoyed.

The dash of light beaming from behind the tree onto the path presented an ideal scenario for this particular frame.

I dedicate this frame to all the members on epz who hold at heart the value of true friendship well beyond the passion for photography.

Shot late in the afternoon.

Thank you for viewing and as always larger is better & wish you all a splendid w'end

Exposure :- 1/30s - @F13 + ND Grad.
ISO 200/Raw

That tree must have weathered a good few storms over the years fine shot Bert.

Agree with your words regarding epz and the value of true friendship which is alive and well on this site and long may it continue.

Hi Bert, I hope this image is intentional, as it seems to lack your particular style(or as some might say "over-filtered), which at the end of the day, is what photography is all about - STYLES .

I like this, but if I'm honest, I'd like less foreground and more sky, like lifting the image a third upwards from the bottom, but that's just a personal thing and not to say it's not right as it is. Hope you have a great weekend buddyWink

An excellent composition Bert. I agree with Fran re the light on the tree but the rest is spot on.

As usual, beautifully composed. IMHO though the sky would have been so much better if all of it had been darkened. The patch of light behind the tree is a little eyecatching.

Lovely light, Bert, and definitely has the feel of an old master painting. I really like the tree shaped by years of prevailing wind.
