Ken,
It might be classical but you got it right! I like the cropping/framing, it gives room to both the tree and the road. The sky is wonderul too. B/W treatment seems good to me but I'm looking at it on an iPad...

I agree with you about the treatment and the sky but for me, the crop looks wrong. There's just too much space on the right and the little tree on the left is too close to the edge. Of course, there may be something ugly out of shot to the left, but I think a little judicious crop (sorry, Russ) on the right would improve it.

Hi Ken,

I like this timeless/classic style of shot.

I tried cropping as Kikashi suggests to see if it does anything for the image and after some experimenting, I don't think it did, I suppose you could perhaps tweak it a little on the right, but after looking and trying various selections, I don't think it needs it, I like it just the way it is.

Toning wise I am not sure as I have nothing to compare it with, but it looks good as it is, but to my mind, toning is a very subjective issue, some people like it and some don't, so if you like it then that is all that matters, it is your vision after all.

Very nice shot.

If you are interested in going deeper into this style of photography, here is a link to Roman Loranc, someone who's images you might find interesting.

Ken, I do like the result, but can't help wondering if a different composition with the large tree being situated further to the right.
I accept that it may not have been possible.

BTW I am shooting in different parts of Australia to you but sometimes feel as if I drive past that tree on a regular basis!

Regards

  I, too, like this but I appear to be the odd man out in that I would crop between the bush on the left and the road.  Tried to see what that would do, but difficult to see effect with such a low resolution image.

   My 2˘.  And I wish we'd follow Canada's lead and get rid of the penny.  Or maybe move the entire currency by one decimal place to the left.

  Easter greetings to all.

I'm with Jeremy; the tones are very nice, but personally I to not like that three on the center and the empty space on the right.

Ken, It's a fine shot. Don't listen to the croppers. Any crop to this picture is going to degrade it. Leave it alone.

Since "the croppers" is a vaguely (or possibly not so vaguely) denigratory term, can I please be described as an extender? Give us more on the left and I shall withdraw my request for a crop on the right.

I find the image very appealing just as it is.

If I had been there, I might have shot at a slightly different angle, but then again, I might not have.

So I'll side with Russ this time.

I'm with Jeremy, again; I explicitly omitted any mention to cropping, because I would not crop the picture, but would have liked to see more of what's on the left and move the tree towards the right.

As I'm currently living a cellpix epoch, and seldom know what I'm including in the frame, I've become totally liberated about cropping. So, were your shot on my 'phone, I'd leave the thing alone except for the right side, where I'd frame it just a teensy weensy bit to the right of the furthest right branch of the main tree. I think that a more concentrated pic is stronger. Maybe that's why I still mourn the passing of my Hasselblad years.

Can anyone remember that maxim (and its source) which was, roughly, that if your shot isn't working you need to get in closer?

I think the no-crop gang are correct on this one - it's lovely as it is.
