    Hey guys, what do you make of these? The tree was underexposed, so I thought I might be able to save it with a B+W conversion, followed by jacking up the blues to separate tree from sky. Let's have some brutal criticism :)

    I don't really like the first one, sorry. I feel like there's just too much going on, and nothing that stands out as the subject of the photo.

    The second one is great though; I really like it! Good contrast and use of repetition.

    Yeah the first one was a bit of an experiment, is there anyone out there that likes it?

    I like the second shot only your B & W looks a little flat.

    On your first photo: It's not that there is too much going on, but rather, what is going on? The contrast between the black and the white really pops out, but other than that it really doesn't say much else.

    Your second photo: I like the repetition of lines and curves, but the top left is a bit distracting. I'd probably crop the black left side of the picture away and crop the top down to maybe where the last bike's shadow starts.
