Fine photo. Like the colors. And, the subject is well supported by its lovely background of sky and landscape surroundings. This is what supports my rating as 10.
However, honestly speaking there is one point that makes it difficult to grasp the subject in terms of your narrative. That is its relative size. That is it is large compared to what? Because there is no element of scale I can't get a grasp of how large the subject is. This observation is only my own. I am sure it is not universally felt. But, it seems this is often overlooked by photographers when they are trying to convey relative size in their captures. And, another factor that is unique to me is that I am not familiar with this tree. Therefore, I don't know what "average size" is for this tree.
Thank you for your rating and comments , they are always appreciated , Bobwed , in answer to your questions I have done a bit of research for you ..... This tree is also known as ' Horse Chestnut tree ' .It is a large flowering tree and belongs to the Buckeye family . In spring it blooms clusters of tiny white flowers with yellow and red bases. From midsummer to fall , the chestnuts grow in green spiny pods. Horse Chestnut trees also have a peculiar bark pattern, twisted limbs and deciduous leaves composed from five to seven leaflets. the Horse chestnut tree is native to southern Europe , and has been grown since 1576 . It is now widely planted throughout the U S A . It grows between 25 and 75 foot. This tree is also resistant to most pests. The chestnuts are not edible , In this country we tend to make holes in these chestnuts hang them on a string and children have many hours of fun hitting each others chestnuts ( conkers ) and each others fingers until one of the conkers is smashed . There is many methods of making the conkers harder ie, soaking them in vinegar and baking them in a warm oven for a long time . In some parts of country the game of conkers is a very serious game !!!!. The first recorded game of conkers is in 1848 on the Ilse of Wight . This tree was well over the 75 foot mark , the small looking fence around the edge of the field is actually telegraph communication poles , even if they do look like matchsticks !!! . Hope this helps I know i have been educated by this research .
