I am afraid this does nothing for me. What is a painted tree? Really, compositionally, your subject is rather too central and isn't really sufficiently powerful to stand on its own, rather part of another composition where it is secondary might prove to be better for you.
I would look around the area for something which would make a better picture and then see if you can compose it with this tree in the background, maybe landscape format, with the tree about 1/3 the way in from one side as a complementary feature.
A tree alone to be successful, would IMHO have to be very unusual in either history, appearance or both. The area surrounding this tree does look a bit barren so maybe there was nothing else there, I just do not know, if there isn't then I guess another place will have to be found.
I would like to help with camera settings etc but you haven't uploaded your EXIf.
You give us no info to go on. The image looks very pastel and possibly shot at a high ISO. There is some merit in the effect though. Not sure about the very central composition. I wanted to up the contrast initially, but that would ruin the effect I think. Jury is still out.
Interesting and attractive picture. In my view quite a strong atmospheric image. I like the misty almost sepia effect. As Paul says it would be interesting to see camera settings as you created it in camera.
I've done a mod with a small crop to place the tree slightly to one side and remove a little sky. However I'm not sure this is an improvement.Ooften trees, especially when they are strong subjects like this, are best placed centrally in the frame.
Hope we get some more views on this image.
Welcome to EPZ David.
To have a critique done thats helpful, you need to tell us your shot settings, lens focal length, lens and camera make, or were simply guessing, and you can see.
If you comment back with this information, as weel as the reason for the name of the tree, it would be helpful.
Sorry about the positioning It was one of my 1st shots as I have only been into photography for a month or so. and still getting used to the camera. Thanks for the comments and will take all aboard for my next pictures. I do not use any photo effects or edit them in any way as of yet, being a newby I was hoping for some constructive feedback and hope my next upload will be better.. Again when I do upload all photos will be as is direct from camera and untouched..
