Taken with the Nikon D80 50mm F1.8. Self timer. The sun shined through the basement window, lighting a small area where the tree was placed and arranged for this lighting effect. The sunlight on the white pot created two reflections visible on the tip top of the tree. Color balanced. Minor vignetting. Decreased midtones in post editing to darken the background.

Controlling carbon emissions is perhaps one of the greatest challenges posed in the 21st century. The effects of carbon emissions are apparent in our ever rising temperatures, better embodied in the term “global warming.” It’s important for all of us to contribute in the reduction of carbon emissions in order to reduce global warming and provide for a sustainable future.

And one method of reducing carbon in the atmosphere and reducing global warming is to plant trees. Not only do trees absorb the carbon dioxide you exhale, but also produce oxygen for you to inhale; making them great for indoor uses. Many trees also produce beautiful flowers, making them aesthetically pleasing. Currently, I have 5 trees inside my house, 7 more in my tiny yard, a lot of flower bushes and a few house plants here and there.

Reduce your global warming footprint, using small actions, one step at a time. Plant a tree.

    Your depth of field in this one is great. Love the way you use your 50mm. It's my favorite lens too.
