Lovely tree against deep-blue sky, framed above civil war era fence! Used the split-rail fence to give the image a 'base' and contrast the green expanse in the foreground. Removed insignificant (modern signage) near tree line. I tried to give it an authentic turn of the century feel in sepia. I liked the stunning colors, but made it look older.
Some color adjustments in channel mixer, adjusted levels, noise ninja even at ISO 100 wanted a pristine image, flipped horizontally, Cropped and re-sized.

Nice leading lines with the fence and I like the sepia tone you chose for this shot. The shadow between the tree and fence line seems to distract from the shot and main subject (the main tree). I do like the detail in the forest behind the subject. Nice work.

Great choice of color-cast to give this the effect of a photo from that era. Nice composition using the fence as a line.

Good choice of duotone, but I believe you could have extracted more detail and texture in the grass.
