A magnificent study of a tree.The composition is excellent, drawing my eye initially to the play of light on the trunk and then upwards and out into the branches where the movement of the tree in the wind is captured beautifully. I suspect the shutter was opened for some duration to create this effect.The exposure is in my opinion perfect. The post process applied is sympathetic and in keeping with the overall feel of the shot.The lack of definition in the background actually works to bring the tree trunk into prominance which I expect was intentional.
The picture displays excellent technique, compositional skills and not a little soul.Well done.

this picture is alot of contrast : near & far \ soft & hard \ movement & still \ rough & smoth texture\ light & dark \ old & new - the combination of all of this together makes it a great photo - i love it !

How the hell..... This is the very best B&W picture of a tree I have ever seen. I've taken plenty of pictures of trees, but I have never done anything this amazing.
I don't edit my photos, but here I see so much more depth can be added to a photo in this way.
Fantastic - as in this is the type of thing I fantasize about. Truly superb.

How can you reduce all the noise, that comes with the long exposure?
When I'm trying to remove the noise with noise ninja, it almost always flattens the details of the pic too.
