The repetitions of the lines being broken by the tree- all add up to a great photo.

the tree looks photoshoppd in..the edges are very smooth,not like tree branches should be....just my opinion

Maybe Photoshopped, maybe natural--lots of trees grow in a very uniform manner. Either way, it's a great image. Congratulations on your win and POTD, Osama!

First off - this is a nice compilation with a great focal point where the tree meets the light area of the sand. However, I would definitely say that the tree is photoshopped in. People should be able to recognize this by looking a bit more critically at the photo. Compare the size of the tree to the size of the grasses. That should tell you that if this was a real "capture", then the tree is approximately 4-6 inches tall at the most. I don't know of any tree in the desert that looks like that and is so small.

Striking image, where was this taken? The tree looks very green for an arid landscape, it would be interesting to know where this was taken.
