Thanks, joayne and flet4141.

@flet: no, the light was almost that way. Usual RAW development and minor changes to the intensity. But... this is a "sandwich" of two approaches. One is a more documentary landscape approach with classy composition, nice light, prominent eye catcher, leading lines and stuff, and the other layer of the sandwich is a painterly, more impressionistic approach. In fact only the tree, the house and the horizon line (woods on the mountains) are "raw". I am aware this is a provocation to many landscape photographers. I personally am not a landscape documentarist, I am much more a child of Monet and Renoir etc. :) I am painting with light. That's what photos graphein (in greek) originally meant.

cheers

Is "Here I Am" your title for this image?
If so, I am not quite understanding how that title fits the image . . . could you please explain?
The image is absolutely wonderful; I'd like to know how the title and the image work together.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Hi Tom.

The optical standing out of the tree led me to an association of native leader/shaman standing on the hill, selfconscious and down to earth: "Here I am" (and rightfully I am here).

I often see this kind of metaphors, stories, associations in scenes and try to tell that story in my pictures. I am a painter that uses photons to draw graphs. That makes me a photo-grapher)
:) Or maybe I am a poet using photography to "write" poems... So, a title always is a part of the process.

cheers
Roland

BTW: sorry if my english is not always good enough to fluidly express myself. It's not my native language...

Thanks for the explanation of this most wonderful of scenic images!

Nice. I thought it was a pic of sand dunes which obviously doesn't make sense do to the trees. Nice technique.
