My mom bought this tree on Halloween. I think it's neat, it's made from some weird material and it's fairly heavy. I thought what better way to express the fear of tress than to make one look really evil.

well, I don't know what to think, is it a real tree, or did you make this from clay. I like the image though, remindes me of the film Sleepy Hollow :)

The almost black on white tends to make white glare at viewer, some blue by trunks should have been removed before shooting. Good idea for subject and overall layout.

Wow, Very nice. Love the "stringy-ness", makes it look even scarier(sp). The plain background is perfect choice to emphasize this.

Interesting tree...but just looking at it...its just a tree...where is the fear?

I would have liked to se more done with the lighting here, the sculpture is a bit flat against such a white backround, and the centered straight ahead view point makes something pretty creepy, a bit too static.

Strikes me as more humorous than fearful. I wonder how you made it?

Now this is really good. The tree is great, perhaps it doesn't look that menacing but then I don't have the phobia:) The centred composition bugs me a bit but I don't know that it would work any better another way. Borders ften loose you points but this one is quite appropriate
