Excellent work, great use of light and a good idea to use such a light-ribbon around the tree, it gives a lot of motion to the picture and underlines how "holy" a tree should be seen in a context like a city. If I must look for some improvements I'll modify a little the smokes out of the chimneys and the leaves are a little bit too dense and they are a little unrelated from background. It's an amazing work anyway, I like it a lot, also because you gave us something beautiful in such an over-exploited theme. Sorry for my english but keep doing such amazing works!

This is indeed some great work and editing! Keep it up. It has a very special feel to it, very creative. Great use to colors! Such a lovely, interesting piece. However, I kind of feel as if this idea was already used at one point. It's very nice though, and the tree should have a brighter color in order for it to stand out more from the city; here, it's a bit grey-ish, as if the tree was the thing fading along the town, not the thing standing out. Overall though, great job! I love it, and I think others will as well.

WOW! Talk about eye catching! this piece is truly magnificent and draws you right in! Even the title that you've given it really signifies the message in this picture. Right away the vision of seeing an enormous tree rooted in the middle of a city is definitely going to raise some eyebrows! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

Honestly I can't say that I find anything "wrong" with your work. Sure there are other people on DA who try to exemplify the same message, but not quite like this. With the additional spiral light affect you have going around tree, it gives this piece a sense of magic. This is quite the show in skill level for those who dabble in photo manipulation and I would like to see more of these powerful messages from you.
awesome work!!
