Can anybody figure out why there's no "pop" to it?

Hey Doc, it's a great subject, but the background is too similar in coloration to the tree, Also, because the sky is putting the subject into a backlit situation. You might consider getting closer and almost under the tree (if possible) to isolate it as the subject (i.e. cut out the buildings). Barring that, I would try a couple of shots with a flash to equalize things and to bring out the tree. I've done that very thing in bright sunlight, and it works very well.

Doc, I would try to take that shot when the sun is lower and you have softer ambient light. As rbro points out, the sky's brightness is making the picture look like the tree jumped in front of your camera just when you got the sky how you wanted. I keep learning the hard way that our eyes can see a wider range of EV than the camera can. Also, it looks like you're not quite level on that photo, but that may have been a compositional choice to get the red bushes to line up with the bottom of the frame. Come back at sunset/sunrise with a tripod using MLU on the cam and you'll get a lot more detail in the tree and bush there. One link to check out that helped me is on the Luminous Landscape (external link).

I hope this is useful for you!
