You asked for some additional feedback, so I'll leave it here : )

I think the image would have been stronger on its own without the vignette. I can't really put my finger on why, but using a heavy vignette like that seems...amateurish. I know that's a strong word, but I don't mean for it to sound too harsh. A light vignette that almost blends in with the image might have complimented the scene and helped keep the focus on the tree, but I just think the vignette is too overpowering.

I like the fence in the foreground. I think it adds depth. I think I would have also liked a bit more fine sharpening to pull out the detail in the grass.

The vignette is too abrupt for my taste and disrupts the quaintness of the scenery.

I'm thinking that this image can stand on its own - minus the heavy vignetting. The contrast of the old giant and its surroundings are very nice.

Too much vignette! Just a touch should do!
