I know this is yours Paul, so I won't be voting on it, but it is exquisite. Wonderful light and form.

Love these trees. I would have liked to have seen a little more saturation, or perhaps a different lighting angle (but I know that's hard to do with natural light).
Nice shot tho.

Lovely sweeping curve, nice sky but really wish there was a bit more light on the leaves.

I think the lighting could have been better really not showing a great deal maybe try another angle too shoot from.

very pretty, nice simple composition. Maybe a little too shadowy in some areas.
