would like your comments though.

I am very far from having any kind of experience to offer any knowledgeable comment, so please forgive me. I like where your photograph is going, maybe if the contrast were a little stronger between the trees and the sky? So that they were a little darker? Thank-you for the inspiration! Opens up my mind to a white vignette.

Hey Jen...all comments are very welcome and I already know I am stretching things here.
but....I do like an experiment and it is very different from my usual.

Experimenting is wonderful; stretching our boundaries amazing! If this is different from your usual, I must away to peruse your "usual" thank-you.

I think, Sharon, I would like to see a version without the vignette. Then experiment with different crops. The shadows are good.
I would definitely crop the bottom a little tighter. Ideally, I would like to have seen the shooting angle just a little different to include the top of the left large tree; and less bottom.
Possibly the vignette would work better, for me, if there was a stronger central element. For instance, a large tree with smaller ones merging into the vignette.
The basic shot is good.

I like it. There is a strong central subject: the tree shadows. The background trees play a supporting role, identifying the shadows (even though the shadows are not of those trees). Also good use of the white vignette. The image seems poetic to me.
