The Pine

Photographer's Statement:

This picture is a small simple pine leaf That I thought showed a lot of character when I took the photo. I had a great lighting with the trees and a perfectly smooth texture with no rough edges to make the tree sloppy. The majestic pine has had a good source of sunlight to make the tree pop and have a shine on the pine. The angle was a good wilderness look so it had a forest set to it even when I was not near one.
