    Winter Twig.

    I quite like this - although it is not the usual frost crystals shot, the starkness of the hawthorn twig seems to enhance the coldness of the scene. But what do others think?

    Winter Twig.

    I agree about the starkness. it makes a statement! nice shot!
    There is a lot of contrast. I think it would be nice in monochrome as well.

    The special aspect of this photo for me is the connection between the subject and the trees in the background. I really like the concept and your implementation of it.

    Try tilting the image just slightly to the right. It appears that perhaps the large tree is tilted to the left or is at least an optical illusion. Even though the horizon seems dead level, the tree might be the more important element.

    Thank you for viewing and commenting Mark and Mike. I think you could be right about the tilt Mike - the image has been rotated clockwise but not quite enough.

    I do think it does enhance the coldness of the scene, and I agree with Mark that a monochrome might work. Nice vision.

    If the coldness of the scene is important, I think the blue cast of the color version is important and, of course, will be lost in a black-and-white version.

    Thank you for your comments Sergio. Regarding black and white, I agree with Mike's point on this.
