all alone
Lens: sigma 28-105mm Camera: K10D Photo Location: cotton field

This tree sits alone in the middle of a cotton field. I meant to shoot this before the cotton had been harvested. I drive by this tree every day and it always intrigues me. Please let me know what you think I can improve or any other ideas on how to shoot it. Thanks.

I like this shot - here I think the symmetry in this case enhances the isolation of the bare tree. Moody and interesting.

I also like the photo, I think it could be improved upon if all the ground was plowed cotton and it was shot at a longer distance. thanks for sharing. Bob

I like this picture a lot. In my eyes it just has character!

Like the texture of the trees branches a lot!

The only thing I could say is I would like it wider.
It's an excellent picture just the way it is tho. Makes the tree kind of stand out

I like tree portraits, and the symmetry works for this one in part because the tree itself is close to being symmetrical. Photographing it from the same vantage point over the seasons would provide an interesting "life of the tree" series.
