There are a couple of rows of old twisted and gnarled hawthorn trees just above Millbeck. Ive tried a few shots but find they quite difficult to capture. The berries were quite striking last weekend so I tried a selective desaturation. Does it work? Would plain mono be better?

Thanks for all the comments on Sunday Night, Astro Night. This was taken only about 0.5miles away, in the afternoon.

I would prefer all mono tbh but this is very well done. Tom

A b&w version would be interesting. But I do like this a lot.

Works well Andy,I think if you’d added any more saturation it would be abit to much,I might be tempted to try cropping a bit of the left hand side out just to reduce some of the sky in the image,which is always abit of of problem shooting woodland.

Works for me Andy. I'm liking the suggestion of mirror images of the two pairs of trees.

It definitely needed to be sharper, and some contrast helps too.

The berries are so tiny, it might not really make a difference either way?

I uploaded 2 mods, the second is mono, berries still visible.
