Mature tree in hayfield

Mature tree in hayfield

This wonderful specimen sits in one of the hayfields of a farm that is rapidly being suffocated by suburbia. I drive by this tree nearly every day, but something about the colors at 5:00 PM this evening really caught my eye.

Heyyyyy! This is with the D80! Jealous! Yeah, it seems to do pretty well, but I'm wondering if the sky couldn't use the slightest bit more light. Congratulations on your investment, Brian. Expect to see many great images with it. I'll have my 400D (Rebel XTi) by February, hopefully.--Chris

Thanks, Chris. It's actually a combination of two exposures (well, two RAW conversions of the same exposure). I fiddled with the balance between the tree and sky until I got it looking pretty much the way it looked to me in the car, at 5 PM, with the sky darkening toward twilight and that unique light you get just before the sun starts to set. I took your advice and goosed the sky a little, but I don't want to go any farther with it, for feari of overdoing it. It looks now just about how my eye saw it earlier this evening.

As for the D80, I like a lot, though I think I'm going to have to buy more RAM and disk for the computer now.--Brian

Nice image. I love the tiny detail in the buildings. Well done. Good luck with your new camera. Smile Amanda

Did you consider the quantity of sky versus land? Maybe it is deliberate to give a sense of size but I would have cropped some out.

I did consider that, but the tree against the big, dramatic sky was what caught my attention from the car window. I left it in deliberately, after cropping it and not liking the results as much. --Brian
