Lone Tree

By Kim Walton    
Now for something a little differant,a self critique ...Wink

Lone tree at the peak district..

Smack bang center ---but it fills the image ,off to either side and i.m.h.o would distract as there is no need for negative space.
Post to right--i thought of taking it out (literary) when i took the shot but liked the way it almost mimicked the tree.
Drystone wall---well in B&W there to die for and i like the way it`s straight on and holds the foreground.
Love the barren tree top and the harsh spring light emphasises the starkness.
Sky for me is pleasing,not dramatic with big dark clouds but natural for the image.

Any different views gratefully received.

Can't disagree with your critique. I like the whispy branches of the tree, but the post doesn't do it for me - gotta go.

I agree the post's redundant. Otherwise this is an excellent mono, and really deserving of far more attention on EPZ than it's had up to now.
