Here's a couple shots I took of a really big tree. This tree is so beautiful in person, and hopefully I've been able to capture at least apart of that beauty.

I used my HP PhotoSmart 735 digital camera. As a learning photographer, I appreciate all criticisms and comments.

I like the abstract effect of the dark, wiggly tree against the sky.. My preference is the second one - it feels somehow more balanced - I think because the first has the strong vertical trunk nearly mid-frame (not generally a good thing), and the curved, dark branch on the viewer's left moving out of frame. Framing the image with the curving branch is probably good, but I don't think having the curved branch move so much out of the image works too effectively.
A general problem with these types of images is the choice of whether to expose for the trunk and texture of the bark, or for the lighter sky. I rather like your choice.
Thanks for sharing.
