Just an old tree

I was out playing with the Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens again. It always amazes me how close you can to get to something and still have it in the photo. I was only about five feet from this tree when I took the photo.


  1. That is incredible! I would like to take a course on lenses so I know what they all do for us.

  2. Like this one alot! A lone green tree in the middle of that native grass praire. Great Plains at its best!

  3. This is a great photo! However, it would be good example try to apply the rule of 1/3 on this one. If the field to rigth or left of this tree is flat, I would composition the tree to 1/3 of your frame in the L/R. Then convert to B&W. One more thing, shoot during Sunrise or Sunset to catch the golden lights. Also, make sure bring your tripod. I would appreciated for you to take some time to do the re-shoot for me. Thank you Ron.

  4. 5 feet away! Gotta love those ultrawide lenses! Be interesting to see your B&W version of this picture.

  5. Man-o-man, you guys are like a bunch of women, never satisfied! LOL

    Sorry ladies. :~)

    Quyhn Le, I hate rules! LOL

    I will get back over there and try your suggestions but I will have to wait until I have a good sky in the sunset. It may take me a couple of days.

    Paul, Once I get the re-shoot for Q I will make a couple of different versions in black and white and post them with the color shot for comparison.


Thank you for taking the time to look at our blog, we appreciate your comments!
