I love the shape of trees without their leaves. If you pay attention you can identify many species by just knowing the pattern of their branches. Unfortunately this is not the best example of a chestnut, but I thought it turned out well anyway with the moon behind it.

I love the eerie atmosphere which you have caught very successfully in this shot. However, I think that the composition would perhaps be improved if the moon was not in the centre of the composition but slightly to the right. I notice you are not using the full allowance of 800x650 pixels ( a problem for many newcomers to TE ) If you post to that size your photographs will have more impact.
A very interesting shot, and good use of B&W.

I like the color composition in this picture. I think the white and black are picked up perfectly to create the powerful silhouette! POV is great as well. Well done.

I love this scary-gloomy feeling of this shot... it's such a beauty. The silhoutte of the branches is like from the film "Sleepy Hallow". A sharp B&W... good composition. Cheers.

very beautiful the light of the moon against the nude branches and this fog in the air. I ever like to see this kind of image.

I have tried such a shot, but didn't get results anywhere close to this! Very good atmosphere to this shot!

I like the thought of a long walk in the cold and silent winter night - this is what your picture triggers in me.
Here a b&w address I visited shortly.

Kate buena composición que forman las ramas del arbol. Me guts mucho el marco formado alrededor de la luna.

it is a magical atmosphere that you have captured here. Great impression of the moon behind the branches. It won’t be long before they become bare again. The light is fantastic! My compliments!
