    I actually find them pretty cool. Sometimes the best shots are born out of boredom.

    don't insult the tree - use it :)
    The light is all in the background, so go for a sillouet appraoch - expose for the sky and let the darker tree underexpose into blackness. Then you need to work on the focusing - even if you can't move the glass screen manual focusing should let you get a sharp result, though I think that camera shake was a part to play in this as well - and with dim light your shutter speed was probably a bit slow for handheld (if it was) so try using a support (eg tripod) next time. When focusing - aim to get the tree sharp rather than blurred if you can.

    These are great! They remind me of the opening shots from "Twin Peaks", if anyone can remember...

    I like it. Experiment with Overread's suggestions and see what you come up with.
