This was a fun shoot ... when it said single tree I automatically thought Fake nikau from the city.

These are designed and work well in our urban landscape.

I took shoot and processed:

Processed from Raw to TIf ... Tif to PSD
Darkened some spots oan the trunk
then resized
Converted to jpg
tried sharpening and reversed .. it looked bad
Entered :)

I was down there last week and took a few shots of these things. Also a few of the hanging ball.

Critique Club Review:

Very interesting photo.

Color saturation and hue are very good. Brightness and contrast are good overall. A couple of teh highlights on the "fronds" of the "tree" are washed out and very close to burn out. Still acceptable though.

Very nice blue on the sky. Cloud pattern isn't the best, but I'm not sure how to get clouds to do what the photographer wants. ;-)

I would agree with other comments that cropping the bottom to hid the mesh would result in a cleaner, less distracting picture.

Overall I like this picture, and with the suggested crop I would have given it a 7 or 8. Without, about a 6.

definitely a fun twist on the single tree theme.. I think this would be more fabulous in b&w

Nice graphic style. Very smooth and contrasty.

Is this a tree? Would a hat tree work too?

I like this but I do find the bottom of the trunk distracting so a slightly tighter crop would have worked better for me. Nice saturated colours :o)

Simple and graphic albeit artificial - it fits the bill.
