Endika is right; this has a very Oriental feel to it. The distant shore completes it all for me. Wondrous.

This is really a wonderful tree. I'm alway amazed how trees grow from rock. Very nice sea/landscape.

Simply beautiful landscape carlos. The textures in the stone are nicely set off by the smaller stones to the left - you got a nice separation of elements throughout. Very Nice!

The tree has a fantastic history, I only know that many years ago during a terrible storm; some residents tied rope supports to the tree to support it against the winds.

it is the only thing growning out of those rocks...

Great composition and conversion. I feel that I'm watching a Japanise picture. endika

I have to agree, I don't think you'd have made a better choice than to keep the tree central to the composition. Very nice shot and great b&w work!

Beautiful landscape with a nice subtle frame.

love the contrast in this, the shadows and light. i'd've no doubt offset the tree and promontory a bit to the right ... and botched the picture. i think centering it was the perfect choice.
