The tree is nice but there is too much distraction.

I know that feeling. I like your choice of tones and the detail and depth of field work well.

I like the idea of this but it seems a tad busy with the irregular fence and mailbox. I might crop it so the left area of the white fence is out of the shot. I might even shoot from a different angle to remove the mailbox altogether. Nice tonality and the contrast is good.

An interesting juxtiposition with the fences in the background being wood & metal... not sure if the tree is "Happy" or worried about being a fence board...
