Solumn Acer

By Emmog
After a rain storm or two (!), I went to the Acer that has just started sprouting new leaves. I used a fairly long shutter due to the lighting. When I playing in photoshop, I accidentally hit a button that sent it monochrome. I liked it. I put the border around it and used contrast/brightness tool and it went from there.

All C&Cs welcome. I hope that you like it. Any suggestions on how to improve are always appreciated

A beautiful image - being in b&w makes us concentrate on the shape of the leaves rather then the colours. Acers are such beautiful trees. I really like the way you've presented it. Well done.
