A powerfully emotional image. This is similar to some of your other images in style and even the feel of the image. I’m starting to recognize your work on site. Yes, it’s great. All those gnarly branches reaching together into that peculiar (Twilight Zone) light. It’s a bit chilling.
Lovely tones - the processing is wonderful (except for a few sensor spots visible in the light background). While I feel that the bushes are reaching out, perhaps that could be accentuated with a more panoramic crop, such as 16:9.
