Typical County Durham winter weather. Its great 'oop North.
I have processed this one over and over again, each time slightly altering the toning and other pp stuff. I think I may now like this version.

I think you've captured the right combination of bleakness and beauty, Rhys. It's wonderful in its stark simplicity.

Very interesting subject with delicate light. Maybe it would be a different photo if the tree were'nt in the middle, but on a side (thirds rule).

@Calusarus: Yes, I know what you mean, but I figured that to draw attention to the subject and make it very obvious that it should be in the middle.
reminds me of sam roberts album cover.:) good job.

Looks great. I don't know how much processing went into this particular ideation of your vision, but it looks 100% legitimate and spot on with the tree & midground. Good job!

@Dean Francis: Thanks.
And thank you everyone!
I love this. The shape of the tree is beautifuland i especially like the right part of it. Though you said it was a lot of pp working it ist not too much. It works perfectly.
