Very nice; well executed. My only thoughts on this are, perhaps a very subtle curves adjustment to lighten up the branches just a little, and maybe considering shooting another image or two further right and creating a panoramic shot.
Thank you. My thoughts were the "death" as in dead tree, and dark left, versus "life" as in water and light on the other side, but you have a point, maybe the tree is just a bit to dark. That tree will not go anywhere soon, so when I get some time, I'll give it another go
