I really have no idea what the point of this tree is but its in my neighborhood. I think it looks really cool, and though I've been curious ive never actually tried to open the bags hanging from it to see what was inside. I edited this by following a tutorial on how to make photos look vintage.

What I really like the most in this image is definitely the vintage mood you have created and you did it very well.
IMO this would have scored high if few pointers had been considered:
1. the photo is way to complex and everything is in focus that voters are unsure on which part of the photo to look for, and the eyes simply keep roaming.
2. usual full tree photos gives a larger impact when shot from a distance and the tree is completely visible, rather than a part of it (unless until it is some beautiful silhouette of a part of a tree)

All the best.

I'll be interested to find the story behind these bags! Quite intriguing.

I love the old Hitchcockian feel. Great springboard for the imagination. Wonderful. In my top ten of the challenge. 9.

bumping this up on another look, because i like that old polaroid feel it gives off.

I don't know why someone would tie bags to a tree like that.. It looks rather spooky.

This almost reminds me of a film shot done in the 70's. I like the feel of the photo, but something bothers me too. I can't quite put my finger on it though. I will revisit this one later.
