Something a little different from me! A tree against the sky which was white and bland!

Thanks Serge!

I almost forgot about this image! I put it on my FB as a yay or nay for friends to comment on. I'm a yay, I love it but around 80% said nay

I'll be with the 80% Gareth. I like what's here but it would be better to see more of it. The tree does seem too truncated, if that's the right word.

It's all fine, we're all different and have our own tastes. "The tree does seem too truncated, if that's the right word."
That was the beauty of it for me, less being more, being unable to see the base and more an arty style.

Yes, that's the appeal for me - a bit of mystery!

I'm with the 80% too, but because it shows too much. On the principle of 'less is more', remove the top of the tree and for me it becomes more arty and mysterious, emphasising flow and swirls. Something like this (hope you don't mind)...

I tend to agree. Until the top was chopped off I disliked the bottom having been chopped off. Now it's chopped off at both ends it has become quite interesting and doesn't need the mddle bit chopping out.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

That's an interesting take Steve, and an entirely different image. Strangely, it feels more 'complete' than Gareth's original, the 'incompleteness' of which makes the shot for me. De gustibus and all that...
