    I've never had a go at a lone tree before. I managed to get this photo in a break in the rain. Any comments welcome, particularly on colour or b&w.

    Second is interesting but flat needs some adjustment to add power to the shot. :)

    Neither do anything for me at all I'm afraid.

    More constructively, I'd suggest the framing is too tight. The 'lone' tree is stronger as a concept when you can see more of its surroundings, and that it really is alone.

    Very useful comments. Thank you both.

    There are annoying spots at the base of the trunk dead centre. Dust? Or a filter?

    I enlarged the original to have a look - it is just where there is no ivy on the tree.

    Mono gets closest for me, but not really original enough. ABLT for me.
