Default To darrasin: African Sunset

Hi ,
I just saw your comments and I am glad to answer some of your questions. First the picture was taken with the tele 18-200 mm and as you know the depth of field is considerable small. This is why the tree and the background are praticaklly on the same plane.Being infront of the sun the highlight is very strong inspite that i used a polarizer cutting down 2 stops.Infornt I used a Nd filter to try to get the ground more exposed but 3 stops were not enough..The tree being not tall it would have bben the only way to have the tree silhouet come out in a better way.Definitely the shot should be tried again..may be closer at focal 135 mm may be.
Hope to get another chance soon...
