Pertinent technical details or techniques: Canon 7D, 10-22 @ 10, 1/1250 @ f8, ISO 320 The country estate of Lyme Park in Cheshire consists of a wonderful blend of woods and moorland, with isolated trees and architectural features in the mix of natural and managed landscape. I’ve tried to give the full flavour here !

Beautiful tree and excellent image of it. I am not sure how you feel about altering elements, but I would be tempted to clone out the building on the left. I find it a bit of an eye magnet. I find I spend a lot of time trying to figure out what it is instead of wandering through the beautiful scene.

Fantastic tree. I can see why you were drawn to it.

I too would globe out the building. For me it doesn’t add to the tranquil mood of the image.

Did you do much dodging in the post processing on this one? The reason why I ask is that the shadows suggest that the sun is out of frame in the upper right but that some of the leaves in the front of the tree appear frontlit to me

What a lot of character in that tree. I too think the tree surrounded by simplicity would work well. Instead of cloning, you could also play with a crop that cut off the busy sides and just focused on the tree.

Gorgeous landscape shot Ian, great composition, editing and colors. Just a small nit, when I open up the image there seems to be some noise and loss of detail. I’m not sure why that is as I am not familiar with Canons. 320 ISO is pretty low but perhaps lowering the shutters speed and reducing the ISO would help?
