It's a nice tree and well placed off to one side but such radical colour shifts will always divide opinion. Personally I don't find a large expanse of brown sky with no variation in tone particularly compelling. I have uploaded a mod for you where I have cropped off a large part of the sky to give a more square format.

Your processing has introduced some serious noise into the pic, particuarly at the point where the green and the brown merges. Again not particularly attractive in my eyes. I have attempted to tone it down using Topaz Denoise.

I'm not sure why you decided to process the photo in this way and what you were looking to achieve which the original photo did not give you. As long as it achieves what you were looking for, that is the main thing.

Best wishes

Catherine

I do like the idea of the lone tree but my eyes were drawn to the noise and think it needs to be a much more clearer format. I am not sure about the colouring aspect as it looks a little bland. I wonder if a lone bird flying in the distance or may be perched on the tree would make it more appealing. The general idea is good though.

Best wishes,

Shellio

i Like the squre format if it was in a series of images but i feel that it sits better on its own if it has more sky but thanks for the mod as i am going to put it in a series so i will put it like this Smile also do you think it looks ok in black and white?

Black and white may work and worth a test. Or if you wanted to stick with colour I wonder if a little more pink/red in the sky would make it more appealing. Imagine a sunset with the sun turning into a ball of reddish colour. I don't think the fence around it does it justice since that area isn't well lit either so doesn't really need to be there.

I've just seen the mod and say that looks better but you just need to remove the grain.

As Cath has said, without knowing what you set out to achieve with this, it's not really possible to give any sensible feedback.
Technically and certainly from a purist's point of view, it's got a lot wrong with it but that's the intention, of course.
If it does what you want it to, then it's worked.

Mod2 is good - I would have even gone for more contrast than that. Potentially a very nice strong simple image, but i would have gone for a stark B&W treatment.
