Wow! I can't believe I actually won! :) Thanks everybody for voting. Now I have a reason to shoot more and more :))

I see there were some questions from commenteres about a brown gradient... this was shot about hour or so before sunset, the sun was very low on the left side and created strong gradient in the sky. This are the steps of postprocessing if someone wants to know:
-desaturated
-color balance shift until happy with brownish effect
-increased contrast
-resize
-sharpened a bit
-neat image
-added 2 pixel border

This is really spectacular. Too bad you couldn't clone out the house in basic, but I bet if you did post challenge, this would sell as a print. Beautiful composition and tones. Great job.

I like this picture because the tree is black and the rest is brownish.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice silhouette--great capture and color
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/08/2005 11:44:30 AM
Great title- really pulls me into the photo (and the very pleasing lighting and color doesn't hurt either) I cant help but wonder what this might have looked like if you walked to the tree, turned 90 degrees right, and walked out some 200 yards...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/08/2005 11:32:37 AM

Excellent Light.

Great sepia effect here. The lower shrub on the right hand side catches my eyes as I pan throughout the image. But it doesn't take away from the majestic beauty that this old fella portrays :) Great image. 8.
