Branches

Contributed By J Bryan



This tree is right behind my house, and I thought the thin branches made really interesting lines and shapes. I darkened the levels a little and adjusted the curves to create the blue-purple shades.

I love this picture! It really draws me in, almost like the sun is a black hole. The way the tree balances it self in the bottom right corner is nice. It's good that you left the top left corner open, it also helps with the balance. Great job!

This is a very interesting picture. I love the hue of the photo and the heavy contrast. The branches all bring your eyes to the light. I like how the sun is not overexposed because it can be overexposed very easily.

I really like the purple and blue hue to the sky. The silhouette of the tree really makes the sky stand out but it also adds more interest to your picture. I love how it starts white in the middle and fades into a deep blue towards the edges!

I really like the colors in this photo. The sky looks amazing, and I think the purple color really suits this photo. I also like how the trees are silhouetted against the bright sky. Overall this is a great photo, and very well done!

This is absolutely gorgeous! I love how the purple, white, and blue of the background contrast so well against the black of the tree. It seems so mysterious, so it's neat to know it was taken behind your house. Good job!

I really like this picture. I love the framing and the way you only use the shadow to compose the shot. The curve adjustment gives it a really eerie look. I like it. :)

This is a really cool picture. The silhouette of the branches create some really interesting and natural lines in front of the colors in the sky. I don't know how much you tinkered with the levels to get that purple tone in the sky, but it works extremely well and it doesn't look heavily enhanced at all. Really great job with this.

I love the colors in this picture. The blues and purples truly make the picture beautiful. I love how the branches somewhat outline the photo, as well. Good job with the framing and the editing!! -JH SPHS

i like the way the color of the sky compliments the black tree.. i like how the tree doesnt take focus away from sky by taking up the whole shot

This picture gives off a very eerie feeling. The purple looking sky around the sun almost looks Surreal. The branches give off the feeling as if they are trying to block you from something dark beyond them and in the sky. Really cool picture! great job!

I like how the sky silhouetted the branches of the tree. I also like how the blue purple shades grow out from the white center, great use of editing.

I really really like this picture. The colors blend together nicely, and the rule of thirds is applied nicely. The mood seems peaceful and mysterious. The tree is a nice addition. Very nice job.

The silhouette of the trees against the sky is very pretty. I like how the branches are such organic lines and lead the viewer's eye throughout the photo. The hue of the sky is a wonderful cool shade that sets the mood as dark, yet peaceful.

I absolutely love this! What you did with the colors are fantastic and i like the silhouette look to it. The branches perfectly encircle the lightest part of the sky which creates a great look. Very nice!

I like how the white light sort of materializes out of the middle of the purple. And the branches seem almost to add a frame for the picture. Good photo! SPHS - SB

This is stunning. I wouldnt change one thing about this. The trees make a natural frame around what im assuming is the moon and make a great focal point! Excellent job!

The different negative shapes made by the branches complements the mystic-like hues that the sky is giving. It also has a nice eye movement, to follow a single branch to the end; giving several paths to choose from.

Great work, as usual. I always really love silhouette pictures like this, and trees are one of the best subjects for that type of picture.

This photo is really good! I like the silhouette effect of the branches, and I especially like the blue effect of the light. Great curve adjustment for the purple and blue, and great use of lines in the shot. - AF SPHS
