Don't know if it was possible but felt that this would have been a stronger interpretation of the title as a wide landscape with the tree centrally placed in isolation. As I said, I have no idea if that was possible to photograph.

I don't think I had the angle to take the shot as suggested. I am very fond of this image anyway, and would not seek to amend it. Maybe the title is the thing that needs changing?

Good thinking Tim. Titles can be tricky things. Ever since mankind developed language it has overpowered our visual perception. The words become more important than the image. Some photographers refuse to provide titles because they direct viewers to an interpretation of an image. Other photographers use titles for this very reason. Some judges read the titles first before judging and some never read the titles to avoid clouding their judgement of the image. We're all the same but different LOL.
