An ancient cedar sprawls across its domain with majestic poise at Forty Hall, Enfield.

This tree will have witnessed times before cars, machines and heavy industry - probably a sapling to the sound of Tudor tankards being clinked in the drawing room of the stately home whose grounds he stands solemnly withinů

Pretty nice shot. I'm sure others have mentioned it, but I would have shifted left to get the whole tree in the frame. This is a great example of a time when breaking the rule of thirds would enhance the shot. I would have centered the big tree I think.

Very scenic location and the fog adds to the shot. Nice job.

I love this photo but it is difficult for the mind to reconcile black and whites
when there are really obvious gree leaves. Just a funny quirk I guess. I do like the photo very much and hope you post the color if you have it sometime in the forum.

Lovely moody composition. I wish there were a bit more richness to the color tones. Not exactly sure what the title means.

Nice choice not to bring the black point up and I love the duotone. Am I crazy or is the frame thicker at the bottom than the top?

I love the mage - only issue is there is nothing clear that tells me this was a wide angle shot. But I'm giving you the benifit fo the doubt - it is that good.
