The envelope format is perfect for your lone tree nicely balanced by the incline on the right.
An interesting sky which add so much to the image's appeal.

P.S. Haven't had time to thank you for the terrific mono mod you did yesterday.
If you have time , let me know how you achieved it and what you do to get the fine art Paper effect.

Exquisitely and perfectly happy by itself, we need to learn a lot from trees.

This is a great composition and landscape. Simple and minimal.

Love the concept of the compositional balance and spread: tussock - TREE - - - h u m m o c k. The dark force concentrated over the tree ensures that relief is felt in the lighter area of sky.
Or something.
In any case I agree with Marian.

Like everything about this one. Peter.

The obvious choice would have been to have the tree silhouetted against the brightest part of the sky but what you've done has added a subtle originality to this piece. It's a beautiful piece Alan, once again.

Composition/crop perfect, of course.
And for all that there is very little colour, there's a glow in the sky that would be difficult to translate into b&w.

Yes Moira, it's an interesting point, that. I tried it in B&W and I simply couldn't get it to work, no matter what.
Thanks. Smile
The flying sky and the inky black silhouette makes for a wonderful image.

Like the minimal colour in otherwise B & W, & like the slightly textured effect you get. Excellent.

Then the contrast against the sky would have been too great for the poor tree... Superb Alan and one of my favourite shots of yours.
The tree is perfectly placed for balance.. There's a storm a comin.... Excellent image
