Heck of a majestic tree! Nice scene. I bet if you keep after it, you could capture a really brilliant sunset as a back drop. While this one is nice, it's not "WOW". Also, be careful with the sharpening. The tree has been hit pretty hard with it.

Good shot and use of the oak tree. I think this could have been a little more effective if you were able to underexpose the foreground a little more. In other words, the foreground should be completely black. in doing this, you can usually get a little more color out of the sky because you are limiting the exposure time and thus not washing away all of the colors in the sky. I am a big fan of oak trees and sunsets. Nice going.

Nice capture of this oask majesty Love the tinge of pink and gradient of sky. Good luck with this nice study.

Nice tree silouette, maybe just a bit too much sky.

This picture makes me wish for the old days.... when people didn't have cameras and couldn't take crappy pictures like this one!
