I just love this big ol tree in the middle of a farmers field. Wish I had better lighting... maybe next time... as I ran out of days to take the shot.

Very nice composition and good pick for a tree. Nice work.

This is a really tough exposure situation - the only suggestion would be to possibly change the in-camera white balance to warm this photo a bit. I imagine this tree would look beautiful in early moring or late evening light (not always possible to get for a challenge, I realize!)

I like that very much. And I would like to see another shot of the same subject under better lighting conditions.

looks flat and washed out to me, also needs some sharpening

Nice capture of the oak, but not enough to hold my interest for very long.

unlike many in this challenge, your cropping didn't cut off the tree, so i think it's very good. i wish the tree had a bit more contrast to pull it out from the background, though. i'd like to see some details on how you did this and wonder if a wider angle lens and closer proximity to the tree might have made it stand out more from the background. what did you shoot this with?
