I like this one ... Old bare trees are one of my favorite subjects. Sometime it is so hard to get all the branches in and still keep detail

The only nit I might have is that there's a ghosty halo around the branches against the sky --the sky background is great with the wispy clouds --- I am constantly vexed by those halos and trying to find a way to get rid of them.

One thing I might try if you get chance to reshoot ... Is get further to the right when the sun is low and get those two bright white gravestones lower left into the image & to get those trees to the right out of the frame. Then shoot with a physical glass red filter ... I imagine the orange dusk/dawn light would pop in the red filter and darken the blue sky ... Also we might see some shadow and get a sense of the tree "facing" the sun ...

Just some thoughts ... I'd love to see some more of that tree ...
