    Thanks - could have done with my chainsaw to get rid of the dead tree in the foreground, but hey, take what you can... ;-)

    Great shot. Well spotted.
    I hardly noticed the dead tree. Not exactkly the focal point of the image.

    Great shot David
  • David de Groot said:
    Cool, see I noticed it, but then I shot it. Opted for shooting wide open to make it less noticeable, must have worked. ;-)
    Thanks Katherine :)

    Great shot. She appears to be taking in the serenity of her surroundings.
  • David de Groot said:
    okinawa47 - She did seem quite occupied. Mind you, there were a bunch of surfers off the point to the left of frame.

    It's just a bit of bird watching. You did see the bird that flew behind the tree right?
  • Jack High said:
    Okay, I'm a bit weird, but I think the tree plans to attack her. It's an interesting diagonal and yes, the lighting is great.
  • David de Groot said:
    Yeah they cling onto the rocks well eh?
    Thanks Jennifer :)
    Indeed :)
    Reaching out at least...

    Thanks Matt. How were the Zombies ?
  • Jon McManus said:
    There's a dead tree? I didn't even notice. Great framing--great light, of course. Awesome!
  • David de Groot said:
    See, throw in a distraction and nobody notices the flaws ;-)
  • evilpandas said:
    I thought the "dead" tree was actually all part of the same plant. Lovely Shot,
  • David de Groot said:
    I guess it's not as distracting as I first thought then :)

    Irresistable composition... I love the pandanus on the Sunshine coast, seems like you had a very productive trip in Noosa, some great shots!
  • David de Groot said:
    Panadanus just say "beach" don't they ? It was indeed a very fruitful trip.
