This is another one of my favorite models.
This tree resides in a farmers field at the North East corner of Kennedy Rd and 16th.Ave in Markham Ontario. It is the subject of my four seasons project as well. I was literally lying in the field in the snow to get the right angle for this shot. I'm sure the motorists driving by thought I was crazy.

Hope it does well

I really, really like this. If the line of blue sky running across the frame were to be darker, I'd think this was perfect.

I would have rotated the image slightly counterclockwise since the tree is leaning to the right. I know that may be how it looks in real life, but it is a distraction nonetheless. Underexposing by a few stops and burning a little more could have given your sky more depth.

Excellent exposure with good tonal range! Good composition and a cool looking old tree!

I love winter trees. You made almost everthing perfect. Foreground, space above the tree, main object slightly off-set, nice clouds in the sky, but I am sure you will agree with me, your photo is not a whow photo. It`s beautifull but basically it`s boring. Sorry. I have done many like that. What would make it whow is a more dramatic light. Read any photobook and prof. photographers talk about waiting waiting and waiting for the right light or they will come back when perfect. Sometime we just don`t have the time for that. Go well

I like this. The contrast between the sky/snow and the tree really makes the tree stand out. Very well done 7

Nice shot. I would have liked a bit more contrast in the sky. Nice angle and placement of the tree in the photo.

Very nice...I might recommend adding a little shadow to the tree. Good job.

I wish the sky could have been more brooding.

I have always been facinated by trees alone in the middle of an empty field. This is a very nice capture of it. I hope you do well.

Fantastic image . Just a little too whiteish imho. Polarizer may have helped here. Toneal range is not complete. BOL

darkening the sky would really make this stand out. I like the crop. A darker sky would have really given it the AA touch.
