This one to me looks unbalanced with the smaller entry to the soil of the trunk and the heavier above- but it may just be the image of course. Keep em coming folks- so much to learn!

Yes Sue I agree,
It does look inverted at the base - But is this clever in creating some tension for us - the viewer?
This is a tree that looks like it could shimmy up to another tree, then proceed to rip it's limbs off..... :o

I fear that to many people, the first thing they would see in this tree is that it is neglected, ugly, needs ''work'', is rough, unrefined, even ameturish. That's how I would have seen it only a few years ago.
Now I see it as evocative, beautiful, wild, of refined taste, masterful. I think a little neglect is what's needed to accomplish this image. To be prepared to ''look the other way'' sometimes. Something that is not easy to do for those of us who like to lavish luxury on their trees all the time!
