Lots of layers behind and the tree in stark contrast to the misty greys. A very restful image Andy.

I have spent time looking at your picture, coming off and returning back puzzled. I find it has good layering but the central placement of the tree was troubling me (or I thought). To be fair the central placement was necessary to display both of the mountain volumes behind it. The foliage of the lower branches cup the distant trees but only slightly but near enough. That was the revelation point that made me think it is the shooting angle that was bothering me all along, not the aspect ratio, or the orientation or the tree foliage in the lower part. The picture seems to have been taken from a standing height and I suppose many people or pictures of it you may have seen have done the same.

But if the tree has to stand out, really stand out, I would suggest you shoot it from waist level or even lower. The lower branches would have a clear distant from the distant trees and its top part would appear to be taller than the mountains!

Thanks Pablo, I see exactly what you mean! I have a feeling something was in the way. Maybe a hedge or a bog or some sheep. It might have also been a bit gloomy so I couldn't compose the shot properly... but most likely I just didn't see it the way you have. I know exactly where I took this and will go back and see if I can improve this! I really appreciate you taking the time to view and comment so constructively. What a great site! Andy

I hope that nobody cuts the tree before you visit the spot again Andy. Remember to use various angles, vertical orientation (from time to time) and the different frame sizes your camera can shoot (1:1, 3:2, 4:3 and 16:9).
