I thought a Taiga was a boreal forest?

Anyways, excellent shot with the lone tree. Good job

The lonely tree gives this image a sparse look but once the eye travels away across the ground and detects the hair like detail kissed by spotlights of sky glow give great weight to this composition. The rule of thirds plays perfect with the groun and then with the tree and all is adorned with the gentle support of the full bodied clouds. Bumping up.

If I had to re-create a dream scene, this would be it. Great shot and composition. The monochromatic look and subject matter give it an almost surreal feel.... nice work

This image is very appealing; it has a stark, lonely quality consistent with the taiga...good composition, lots of movement in sky and grasses.

This pleases my eyes, I'm a sucker for lonely trees photos. It's a little burnt out at the right top and with a little better PS work it would be perfect, maybe just by cropping off a little bit at the top, the white spot in the upper right corner, would do the job... very nice color tone.

I like the far away sense of this. Good use of post editing filter. Very simple and emotive. 8

Excellent photo, I like the B&W and the minimalism of the tree.
