"WOW".....I have finally found a tree on the last day of shooting, that was suitable for this challenge.

It was a cold bleak rainy overcast day, so this actually helped to add a real ghostly feeling to the image.
I also think it is quite strong in Black & White, but now have added soft orange tones, to give a nicer softer feel to the old leafless tree.

This tree would be hundreds and hundred of years of age, and still standing tall.

Looks like you used a bit too much USM. The halos around the branches are a distraction. I would also prefer to have the whole tree in the shot.

That is a grand old tree. The number of times that each branch has divided on its way to becoming the finest twigs is amazing.
