cropped, adjusted curves to emphasise contrast and texture of bark, desaturated 'cause I like the impact of B+W over colour and am an old fuddy duddy who can't get used to colour film let alone colour digital ;)

I like the way the angles fall in this.

What I like... this photo connects with the challenge nicely, exposure and contrast are good too... What I don't like... The photo to me personally, isn't that interesting. Obviously, that is a personal preference, but it just doesn't do that much for me and for this challenge I'm trying to explain to everyone why I voted the way I did... 5

I know the branch is the main subject, but I would have liked seeing a bit more of the guy's face. Beautiful b&w conversion and nice details in all parts.

The pose and the boy in the tree give this a sort of Tom Sawyer storyline to the photo which adds interest however, I think the boy should really be facing you to make this much more interesting, even if he is looking out and not directly at the camera. The B&W conversion is good and really shows off the texture of the tree but it kind of mutes the boy into a dull grey.

Black and white is so captivating. I love the texture and the missing bark from the main branch. Nice shot.
