|Interesting subject. I am heading to Cambridge to live soon so will be sure to visit here, and DPC might see a few submissions from this place.
The colours are great, which contrasts significantly with the place that you have photographed, a somber place......A lot of people will photograph this and convert to Black and White, which means it tells a completly different story. i like how you, by using colouor, have emphasised the trees, and the peaceful nature of the place, rather that the sense of loss that a B&W image would have portrayed. In this, you processed for the Challenge.
The path nicely leads you to the main tree, while the large shaddow in the front also ties in well to the challenge topic. i didn't vote, but this image probably deserved to score closer to a 6 average overall........
