Just beautiful! Love this but think it may be even better if you cropped the odd branches off the right-hand side and maybe a tad off the bottom, if you want to keep the overall dimensions of the image much the same. I might also be tempted to clone out the partial tree on the left. That said, I really like it as it is. Good one Dan!
