Neat picture -

If this were me doing it, I would have taken a step back and taken a little wider shot and maybe included the entire tree on the left as well instead of cutting it off. Maybe a boost of saturation/contrast as well to make the colors pop more as well (not too much though). Good work.

Nice capture (1st) but the tree branch framing is a tad too much. The second is better but where I am frustrated is by still being hemmed in by the trees which creates a tunnel view of the peak. Aaagh (no 3), I'm getting a definite tree phobia now.

^^ Agree. Too much with the trees (or in several cases, bits and pieces of trees) poking into the frame on three of the four sides (especially in the black and white image). You need to be judicious with the framing, especially now when most trees have lost their foliage.

It has the potential to be a really nice image but it depends on your Photoshop skills...the foliage is a distraction.

Technically, and aesthetically, it doesn't work for these images. That being said, if you're happy with them that's really all that matters. You have the right idea...a well-framed image is more pleasing to look at...you just need to pick and choose what to use as framing and when/how to use it.

The framing of your second photo is the best, in my opinion. The high contrast in the black and white one is a little extreme. I really like the mountain, though-- Mt. Olympus, if I'm not mistaken!
