Happened upon this willow down by the local beach at sunset, noticed another smaller willow growing off to it's right, at the time I wished it wasn't there as it sort of ruins the symmetry .. though it grew on me.

Decided to remove the nice "sunset" colours and desaturated the image in blue.

"WOW" was my reaction when I first saw this. Somewhat centered composition works great and the blue, silver, and black mesh together perfectly. My favorite of the challenge so far.

I really like your use of white space at the top. The color of the sky is wonderful. The only thing I would criticize is perhaps a tighter crop at the bottom.

EDIT:
I changed my mind. After a second look, I like it the way it is!
