My favorite tree, it's treated me pretty well in the past challenges, hopefully a few of you like it this time too. Was driving around after work trying to find something to shoot & saw the sun setting, so I drove up to the tree on the hill. Hopefully it's not too dark on some monitors.
Not alot of editing:
color balance
add border
save 4 web

Oh, and just a side-note, the burst of yellow near the tree was naturally there, nothing was cloned or edited in there...

I do believe this is the very first time that I like the effect of a huge obvious border. It enhances the great contrast in the image, and the black and white also bring out the beautiful colors in the sunset.

An interesting border but it really doesn't detract from the photo at all; imo anyways. A perfect silhouette made better by using the "rule of the thirds". What else can I say but wonderful shot. -BB

Love the sunset and intricate details of the branches. I'd rather seen a larger image, than the huge white mask inside the black frame.

Overall an very good image. Great colors and well exposed. I would have placed the sun in the lover left corner as it IMO makes the picture better balanced.

Not usually a fan of big borders but this works well to show off the photo as it would look matted and framed. Nice, simple composition done well.

Wonderful silo. (imo) to thick on the white portion of the border.
