This is amazing! I've never seen a better looking Ent! No wonder it was a top 10 pick!

Good subject, but more dramatic lighting and shadows would have helped a lot.

Any friend of treebeard's is a friend of mine.
Just wish the lighting was a bit more dramatic.
Nice capture though

Good eye (on both you and the Ent, er, tree). Duotone works well.
