I saw this tree while driving down the freeway. I had to turn around and passed it twice before finding it again. I thought it was perfect for the challenge.

The color shift is the first thing that attracts the eyes, however, this is a a very good find for this letter. Bumping up.

OK, it is there. But the photo needs a bit less distracting background to make it really stick out. 6

This is an interesting image, but one of the many in this challenge that don't seem to be "well photographed". I'm affraid many images in this challenge were created with the "letter" in mind and everyone tossed out the window everything they had learned about photography. Although you have captured a "letter" in nature, I'm sorry, but I find this photo uninteresting to look at. <4>

Very very straightforward composition lets this down a touch perhaps - all you have is the tree, and the light on the grass behind to carry interest. I would love to see it against more of a landscape, to bring other elements to the image - and that would also help you not have to position the thing so absolutely dead centre of the frame.

Nicely spotted although the whole shot looks overexposed and washed out. Great angle of the gras behind your subject makes the shot really interesting. Pity you wre shooting into the shadowed side of the tree too. Perhaps shooting the other side and flipping the image would have made a better lit shot.

i love the colors and the way the lines of the photo seem to criss cross. i do think that the branch of the tree in the background in the upper left portion of the photo is a distraction.
