I have had this shot in my head for some time. I have practiced Yoga for a little over two years now. There are many balance postures "Tree" is one of my favorites. I thought of this shot and have wanted to take it but the right challenge never came along ... until now. Hope this does well. I am trying to set aside time in my life to continue submitting to DPC. I love the challenges and the charging of the creative juices.

Thanks for looking

Coley

Isn't it wonderful when your vision comes to life! Those usually make the best photos, and certainly the most satisfying. This is a great example. Congratulations on your ribbon. I'm happy for you.

Congrats, Coley! You got my highest vote for the challenge.
Cool - it never occurred to me the pose (posture) was actually called "Tree."

Best of the bunch, 10 from me.

This idea is really wonderful. Nice clean subjects, terrific isolated tree. For me, there needs to be just a bit more depth in the tonal range, as this appears a little bit overexposed, and I wish there was just a little more space between the yogi and the tree.

The winner!

Very nicely done, especially the outstretched finders. Black and white was a perfect choice for this photo.
