I cropped off some of the right, I think Brian Peterson would be okay with it. Then I resized. Then I converted to b/w with Calculations. Then I converted to Duotones. I made one layer sharp with USM and another layer blurry with Gaussian blur. I used the blur layer mostly for the sky. I cloned out some white spots on the foreground water.

This is a nice single tree effort that is well placed. I like the tone of this shot. I noticed that when you made ajustments to the sky, it affected the tips of the trees. Whenever I do that, which has been quite a bit, I really get hammered for it. Of course, I'm one of those crazy people that really like that kind of stuff. Good job.

I didn't vote on this challenge or I would have given this a 4 just to make sure I beat you...of course this would have been entirely dependent on my knowing this was your shot...sorry no checkmark there...and my knowing you gave me a five...

but really I like the loneliness of this shot..the tones enhance it nicely...hopefully you can carry on after having e301 remark on the "touch of interest" element...and you know he really is the king of having that one little thing that takes the shot to the next level....

Quite dark.

Intriguing light here. I like the simplicity of your composition, and the humdrum element of the inclusion of that bench; I think it perhaps lacks a touch of real interest for me - either human or graphical.
