The noise is nice in this shot, and the muted colors seem to fit your mood. My only complaint is that the noise and color have caused a reduction in the detail of the tree branches, which seems detrimental to the subject.

Love the grain, love the composition, definetly love the tree! but those colors of the sky... hmmm... They draw to much attention and look pretty unnatural. This one should be B&W or some gently sephia tone.

I'm happier with people who had the guts to do a good amount of grain. I don't like the gradient however. What is it doing for the picture? There were a number of ways to add the grain as well, and I'm not a big fan of this type. The subject was a good one for a grainy image. 5

The grain adds to the eerie feeling of the shot and the creepy looking tree. For me, I really would have liked to have seen this in B&W. The yellow on the horizon is too warm for my liking. Overall, a good image.
