I like this because it has three elements rocks tree and mountains.... pics work better that way in my opinion, it is my rule of thirds lol 9

jpg quality seems less than it has to be. The file size needs to be maximum 150kb so you have some room to work with if this photo originates from a higher quality image. If not for the image quality, the backdrop is gorgeous, and quite an interesting contrast between a white and barren landscape to a foreground with vegetation. The two worlds seem so near to each other :)

Very nice composition, and pretty scene. The focus looks a little soft in the foreground - would prefer more crispness here.

Well taken Photo. Very nice. Good luck in the challenge.

Needs to be sharpened alot. Good composition.

Ewww NICE! I love the sharp focus and color of the tree with the beautiful mountain colors. The rocks in front create a beautiful base for the shot and bring the eyes forward, as the snow takes the eyes to the back. A technically superior shot! Congratulations.

I love the depth of field - it really separates the tree from the mountains. Your framing and composition is lovely. I have nothing bad to say except that it is perhaps a tiny bit blurry in the very foreground - perhaps wind or a long exposure? Great photo though.

Wonderful clear shot.

I like how you included the tree and the rocks in your landscape shot. It adds dimension and interest.

Beautiful landscape!

Great capture. The tree in front makes the mountains seem so huge. Colors, light are right on. i wonder if using more than 85kb of the allowed 150kb would have made the tree a bit sharper.

Strong image. Something bothers me about the tree though, and I can't really explain why. Maybe it is just too big and dark while I would rather see something smaller to really accentuate the strength and majesty of the backdrop.

There's a real feeling of depth to this shot which I like.
The tree is probably taking up too much of the frame. I think a landscape ratio rather than square would have been better here, though I understand your wanting to use as much space as possible to show off this scenery.
Nice work.

I like the lone tree in this picture but in my opinion I would have changed my position so the tree emphised the topic of your title.

how distinguished

Majestic mountains!! The tree nice and clear in the foreground (and not too close) and the mountains in the haze in the bkgd is a great contrast. The colors are well done. It lacks a little clarity esp in the foreground. You could lose a little in the mountains and I don't think anyone would know due to the haziness and distance. - Inspzil

Even if I hadn't been there I'd know this is California by the tree. ?Yikes hope I'm right and not going to have to eat humble pie.....LOL Very cool shot. Love the colors and the light. Good dof.
