This is how it fell out of my camera.




I think it's one of my better shots of late, but I'm up for a slaughtering, sorry Critique.

Paul-

It very much reminds me of the fellow in Australia who takes night photos in the park and integrates both the city night lights and the trees in the park by illuminating them with a 1,000,000 candlepower torch.

Technially it is excellent, though I find the high contrast of the overhead moon ( Ibelieve it is the moon) to be a bit distracting.

I'd like it if it was rotated 90 degrees!

I really like this photo also. The moon as it has been said is distracting but golly this is a cool shot.

I also like this one, and like others have said, the bright light whether it is the moon or not is distracting. All in all a 10 to me still.

The moon in that position is jarring to the senses. If the tree was rotated to a slightly out of level but upright position then it would feel right to your senses. and so would the moonlight! You almost never see a tree growing in that direction (across the photo from side to side therefore it doesn't only look wrong but feels wrong to your brain. Kinda' jarring to the senses............ Copy and paste it into photoshop and see what I mean!
