Lone Tree in the Field

Lone Tree in the Field

It all started with a drive over to Tismana region, of Gorj county, in Romania.

After passing through Peștișani, as driving towards Tismana from Târgu-Jiu, on the left a wide field opens up; bordered further, on the same side, by a throng of trees. Even further up ahead, about 2 Km, there is a large forest coming up. However, before the main road dives into the forest, there is a moderate-to-large sized Field and in it I noticed that a Lone Tree goes about its usual life.

Returning later during Sunset one evening, in early August, I took a few shots of it. Of all my attempts, this is what came out as a selection to start my editing work on:

Using Skylum’s Luminar AI I have tried to add more to the weight to their simplicity, by playing with colours and light. These are the results I was most happy with at the time:

Later on, I tried going a little further by putting Luminar’s AI at work and yielding these dramatic (albeit fake) results.

Neat, right?

If you would like to take some shots of your own, Lone Tree’s location can be found on Google Maps or via these GPS coordinates 45°03'50.9"N 23°01'16.2"E. Happy photo shooting!
