I keep on publishing my trees series. This one is a typical member of the Cerrado (the main vegetation in the region I live). At this time of the year, the weather is dry, but the trees are strong enough to resist the lack of water.

Hi Livio,

This is really striking in black and white. A very unusual looking tree with the twisted branches. I'm wondering what kind of tree it is. The wonderful white clouds give good contrast. I like it very much.


Hi Livio,
A good choice for conversion to B&W. Strong contrast and tones here. Clouds add some great textures in the sky. Well done.

Hi Livio,
Just marking this post and will come back with a proper critique later.

Hi Livio,
A very good capture of this lonely tree. But I prefer the colored one in WS than this BW one. Anyway a nice capture. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Livio,
I like to see this motive in black/white, impressive view, thanks.
Wonderful clouds and this old tree, a beautiful motive.

Ola Livio,
Just marking my critique for now, as I don't have
much time right now to make a proper one. but I'll be back later.


Belissimo trabalho!!!!

Great shot in BW. The way the lone tree is standing with its dry leafless branches stooping down looks awsum. Looks like the whithered tree is tired. The place gives a feeling of dry desolate barren lands. Excellnet shades and composition. Thanks for sharing.
