the horizont is pretty central and focus is so expanded that I can't realy tell wat you want me to see exactly, where is the most important point in the picture..? this tree is not sad...we look at it in a sad way.
Such a sad and heartbreaking photo, there's just something about the way the tree is bending and twisting from the earth that suggests it does not want to be there and wants to escape. I love the use of long exposure to blur out the moving branches too, it enhances the feeling of movement of the tree. Beautiful work!
Love the feel and the lighting in this piece - the graduated, framing tones of the sky and dark-but-detailed tree coupled with the composition convey bleakness in a way the typical tree-silhouette-against-gray-sky pic can only dream of. Very emotive, great photography!
