[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was a national holiday here in Brazil last September 7th - Independence Day. So I decided to try some pictures, especially tree pictures. I took my compact camera and captured some images. This is one of them.

The original file is a RAW format one.

Neat Image on the background to gret of rid of noise after applying some Smart Sharpness.

ISO 50.

Photo taken at 9:47am.

Hello Livio,
I like those bright and well saturated tones of colors. This centered composition work well in my opinion. The contrast between the pale grass, the sky and the tree is beautiful! I wonder which kinds of birds are perched in this lonely tree :) Even if I’m late, happy national day :)!

Hi Livio,
Nice blue sky, sans clouds makes it feel lonely ;)
The fence/dry grass encircling it's base adds interest to your "minimalistic" composition. Great detail, color, and exposure.
Well done!

You certainly must know I am a lover of trees. If not, I am such. Also a few days ago I posted a picture which was pretty much of a landscape with trees, but in it a small hawk. You also appear to have one hiding there near the top.
It is a fine picture Livio. I love the colors and wish to heck I was going to be there instead of this blustery cold and snow we have coming in a few months.. Good shot.

Hi Livio,
A nice capture. Very well colored sky along with the tree. But the nit is the human made fence it is a bit distracting to me. I am posting a WS hope you will like.
Thanks a lot for sharing.
