Photo Challenge #29 Trees Not Christmas

R U L E S:- The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You post ONE image (only first image by one person will be judged) that is relevant to the challenger theme. You can change your image as many times as you like before the deadline.

- The host chooses a winner *AND* runner-up after closing. The decision of the judge (the Host!) is final. The judge is *not* eligible. The winner then chooses the next topic, tells everyone when the photo's must be posted by (give some reasonable amount of time like a week), runs the challenge, judges the winner and passes on the baton to that person. Winner/Host, please post a reasonable topic that someone who's not a pro photographer can be a part of. Remember it's not just cool shots, but the story that can be told for some.

- If the winner fails to post a new challenge within 48 hours of being declared the winner then the runner-up should post the new challenge within a further 24 hours.

- Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera it was taken with. You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most helpful if you list your camera, lens and exposure info along with your photo.

- All levels welcome. If you don't have the best lens or just a plain old pocket camera but your shot tells a wonderful story then there's no reason you can't win! This is about overall photo's and their story, not just about expensive equipment.

- Feel free to comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, ask for it...after all we are here to learn too and practice.

- Provide any additional information concerning your entry you want. Explaining how the shot might relate to the topic could help too.

- Winner/Host, please copy and paste these rules into the topic and thread that you post because some might start doing contests later
The topic for this contest will be a Tree. I am really looking for a solitary tree. Any season is good. Lets run the contest with the Holidays and all to January 3 unless there is an objection
Something like this.

I doubt the Image Stablization came into play there, the shutter speed was probably extremely short due to shooting into the light.

Thanks. I took that picture 2 years ago at the top of Sandia Peak just outside of Albuquerque. It was -30 with the windchill and the altitude was about 10,400ft.


@Jeff... I tilted the camera to get the tree vertical.

Looks to me like the photographer had one shorter leg

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Cool Mexiwestpark

Mexico-This one was down in MehHiCo, Mayan ruins called Chichinias (sp?) Probably one of my better ones, at least of trees.

Midwest- The second one was while driving back from Upstate NY. Have always appreciated solo trees in fields, maybe my midwestern upbringing but there is something very welcoming about it. Used to be a sick panaramic exhibit in the lower level of the Art Institute that showed midwestern landscapes perfecting using single tress and silos as focal points.

Buena Park-The last one isnt a tree I know but I dig the colors and detail.

Hopefully they show up, been having trouble loading pics for some reason.
