An old tree on my block, it always has been a source of fasination to me, it seems as if it is displayed after dark when the street light comes on and the detail of its old branches are displayed.

I don't like the green hue, maybe yellow or even a pale blue would have suited the scene better?

Composition is off a bit to me. I like the contrast between the green image and the black of night.

Really cool idea! The light is a bit bright for me, but I love what it does to the tree.

The light is far too bright I love the green effect on the tree but that light ruins the image Sorry Its a shame you couldnt crop the light out

Nice lighting effect. Maybe too centered, but still an interesting photo.

The green tint seems to make this look odd to me.

Technical: fits the challenge. Exposure lighting composition focus all good.

Personal: As tempting as it was to me to take a shot like this, I chose not to because I thought it wouldn't be very compelling- and that's how I feel about this image. It's compounded by the fact that the light source is way too bright and distracting for me. I'd love to see some more imagination!

The green tree against the black night is dramatic. The streetligh detracts from the picture as it draws my eye away from the tree and stars.
