Hi Jer
The colour popping effect is good - but what makes this shot appealing to me is how you framed the tree in a vertical panoramic format and neat frame. The grain in the sky reminds me of the old hard printing papers and fast B&W film from Ilford when I used to play with film & darkroom (when I think back to the mess and time wasted... thank God for digital..!).

Hi Jer

Superb shot you got here, love the eay you made the post processing.

nicely done man.

Hi Jer,
A nice composition with this wonderful tree under a dramatic sky.
The colored tree in the B&W surroundings is outstanding owing to the very good lighting on it.
Well done.

Hi Jer
Amazing idea and well done my friend
I like its simple composition, and how you keep the tree colors and discard environment colors... different job, So nice

Ciao Jer

eeally congratulations for both the composition,that is perfectly balanced in the figures and in the context, and for the excellent work of PP that enhances the beauty of the tree and the light that you captured.

Who knows how it would be if you try the sepia in place of the BW ...

Congratulations and thank you for sharing this beautiful shot.
