Wonderful and skilfully done to BW. You have really got that sharp contrast of the black shadows to intensify the sharp light of the sun. Just like those words of Dickens saya!

What a delicacy, feminine vision of a female tree with the shower of her hair, shower of light filtered the best way, i love how you filled your frame with such luminous natural beauty ! A gorgeous mono.

Beautiful B&W. Feels a little "hot" in some places (leaves) but is still very dramatic and lovely.

Reminds me of my childhood when trees with low hanging branches were the perfect place to hide out for a while. I like the mood of the shadows against the brighter background.
