I am working on editing some photos of mine from over the last year for a photo competition. I am not sure if this one will make the cut yet, I have worked on probably 5 different interpretations of this photo. For some reason I wasn't fond of the color versions and I did well in the Black and White competition last year ... so this is where I am at so far. I liked the composition, but I don't really feel like the tree stands out enough. I will sit on it for a bit and decide later. For now enjoy

I am open to criticism or suggestions.

I do like the composition.
I agree with you assesment, I would brighten the tree a bit, and maybe the mountains (though just a tad for the mountains). There is a lot of darkness in your shot, which isn't a bad thing, but there isn't anything to catch the eye.
