Yvonne Willemsen 4/20/2008 8:31:08 AM

the tree looks photoshoppd in..the edges are very smooth,not like tree branches should be....just my opinion #5810941

Colleen Farrell 4/20/2008 9:14:35 AM

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! #5811078

Totally awesome image. Congrats on you wins!! #5811625

John Villinski 4/20/2008 4:33:31 PM

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. #5812478

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. #5830040
