    I must admit this one doesn't do a lot for me as I keep looking for something in the distance to the left of the tree. I think that colors could have helped. On this monitor it is a little dark.

    I will say it was an intersting idea and an excellent attemp. :)

    Isn't it funny how the same photo can conjure up different emotions? When I posted this on another forum, I got the following response:

    I guess if we all felt the same about all pictures, it would make photography a little dull! ;)

    It also appears dark on my monitor, but I like the composition.

    It is dark, but it seems to draw the eyes towards the distance somehow. I found it very compelling.

    I like it. I think it may be a bit more attractive if it were in color. Not sure though.

    I really like it...I only wish you would have caught the clouds when they weren't hiding. for some reason the clouds make me think I just missed something.

    Hmm... you're right - it would be more dramatic to have caught those clouds in the shot in full more.

    I think the clouds would have really done it for this one, even in B&W.

    I think your framing is very good!

    I like how my eye is drawn to something(like the others said) in the distance.

    reminds me of the stephen king books "the dark tower trilogy"

    Has a certain attraction but I'd like to see more detail in the foreground and the darker parts generally.
