Shot of the Day #77
Its a dead tree! Wow, yeah not much to talk about here, just a really cool exposure. My eye was drawn to its bleached white trunk, seeming to illuminate in contrast to the dull shadows. Also, facing east at sunset presented the dramatic darkening sky, which was just too good of a backdrop. I made the most of that in Lightroom, contrasting tree and sky. Although the foreground is pretty much silhouetted there was no point lifting any detail out; after all the tree is the subject. Nevertheless, anything in the frame should always be attended to, and I thought maybe just a hint of colour in the foreground would balance things up.
