This feels unbalanced with the tree so far to the left, but in a good way. It works for me, and I love the simplicity!

Thanks Bebe, I know what you mean about the negative space but I wanted to include all of the long shadow. I suppose I could alter the shadow in PS and then shift the tree a little closer to center. Thanks for the feedback.

I didn't mean it as criticism here, I actually prefer it this way! I think it adds interest to the shot, and the large snow bank in the back does offset it a bit (and the cloud whisp). I wouldn't change it!

No Worries, I know where you were coming from. Btw, I did a B&W of this and was thoroughly unimpressed. I'll have to post it in my gallery.
