I've been sorting out my Lightroom libraries etc. after a series of events I won't bore you with and rediscovering old images I had never worked on before. This one was shot using a Pentax MX, SMC Pentax "K" 17mm fisheye and Fuji Neopan 100 film.

Camperdown cemetery, Sydney, 2013.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Perfect choice of lens for that shot

The composition is spot-on, looks like the lighting wasn't easy to manage but you've done a brilliant job

Finding an angle without cars or the sun straight into the lens was a real problem. In the end, I picked a viewpoint with the sun directly behind the trunk. Those roots are huge, it isn't just the fisheye!

Impressive, both visually and technically. Well worth the time spent finding the right angle. The tree seems to be reaching out to grasp the photographer (and viewer).

Are you sure it's a tree and not an elderly Ent from Middle Earth?

Beautiful tree, and image. Your PP is spot on - no need to dramatize.
