It would be quite lovely, almost graphic, without that contrail. Not sure if you did it on purpose (including it) or did not notice, but I find it distracting.

I did it on purpose. I thought it would make the BG slightly more interesting.

I think it was a pretty good idea to try. You can certainly see the effects on the composition. I think this is a good kind of experimentation to be doing. There may be a lot of possible framings with that contrail. Did yo try several? One cutting through the tree would be effective (maybe). Don't get boxed in by a lot of rules just now. Try things - it's free. Follow what interests you.

I wonder if the artist has ever heard of the Haudenosaunee 'False Face' society.  Masks were carved into and then separated from living baswood trees.  The carving must be very fresh in this image - once the ground thaws out and the sap starts running the face will be unrecognizable and eventually completely buried.  But the artist will still be aware of it, and maybe that was the point.

Mike.

Very poetic and fine thoughts! But I fear that the thinking of the devout artist is less organic, probably he applied some transparent varnish to the Madonna...

So do I. The second isn't interesting but the rays in the first are lovely.

Not sure what to think about this one.  That's probably a good thing.

I'm guessing really old maples based on the growth form.  Nicely done.

Love the caption!  You know, sequoias and redwoods (among the world's largest trees) have really shallow root systems.  They grow in groves because the roots of nearby trees all intertwine and form a group support network.  The trees literally hold each other up.

Indeed. Tree roots is what I do to support my photography.
Here's the camera, and an image.
