Superb and superbly moody. That tree is almost a giant question mark, reversed; I like the way its shape is partially filled out by the posts in the water, and even the twigs contribute.

Not your usual landscape shot, but I really like it. The crop is fantastic using the tree as a frame and the light is very atmospheric.
It seems as tough the tree is in the shape of a heart (an incomplete one).

Great use of the tree as a frame John
a great image overall but I think maybe a touch underexposed??....maybe cloning the branch out the middle of the image to give a straight through viewpoint??? could just be me like Smile

That sure is one superb tree!!
It does remind me of half a heart and its a shape I've seen on a necklace before too.
I love the way you have caught the light in the "frame"
