I really like this one. There is a bit of noise in the tree, but it actually plays well with the other colors.
Thanks, Ry . . .
I pushed the creative envelope a bit on this one. The noise is intentional. I was trying to create a mood more than a picture.
The sky was pretty gray with no texture so I kept pushing it until I got the dramatic effect I was looking for.
I really like it. Great composition, and it really grabs your attention. As always, nice shot!
