I like the way you've managed to pull a good shot out of unpromising weather conditions. Great comp, too, with the foreground rock echoing the shape of the tree. Nice work, Miles!

Flawless composition and a remarkable achievement in celebrating the lack of light rather than suffering from it. Outstanding.

Lovely atmosphere to this. Great sky and I like the silhouette of the tree against it. Foreground interest is good too.

The tree looks a bit dark for me, but I love the feeling of wilderness that this shot gives. Youve captured the essence of Dartmoor superbly with this great composition.

There are far too many elements to mention in one little comment. The comp is perfect with that little tree in the background and the rock in front. There si something about the symmetry with the main tree and the rock too that adds an extra dimension. Nice dramatic sky too.

Hi Miles, been out on the moor today freezing cold wind!!! How do you get it to look so moody? what camera mode and settings did you use?
Thanks Meg x

Fantastic shot Miles, very nice indeed.

Miles Herbert 18 1.9k 4 United Kingdom

Hi Meg, the moodyness comes from the darkened sky being filtered. Camera was in full manual mode, metering was on the ground in the foreground using center weighted metering, then the 0.6 (2 stop) ND hard grad was added running along the edge of the horizon and allowed to underexpose the sky a little.

Hope that helps.

Thank you all for your kind comments

Thank you Miles I am going to have to get some of those filter things!(and practice with the camera in manual!!) lol
Thanks again
