La saturacion del cielo perfecta para realzar las texturas.

En colores se ve muy linda también, menos dramática pero más cálida.
Un abrazo!

Thanks, Christian!
You know, I took this picture last Saturday and I was just experimenting with a digital camera. I just pointed and clicked! I am an old fashioned photographer and I use a SLR film camera most of the time. I posted the same picture in B&W, as you suggeted, increasing the contrast, but had to decrease the brightness. Let me know what you think.
Thanks again for your comment!~

Your interest in graphical composition shows through here as in many of your other posts I have seen in your portfolio. Trees are fascinating, sometimes we read them as if they had a personnality, sometimes, they look more like a stochastic, disorganized pattern. I think this is the case in this proposal you have submitted here. It looks like cracks on porcelain - not without interest but challenging. These lines have to stand on something, on a surface. Here, you have chosen the sky to support the complex pattern. It does the job well as nothing in it will distract us or will add to the complexity of the twigs.
Some parts of the bark are overexposed, resulting in the loss of surface details - if any were to be noted. If this was shot in RAW (I don't know if the DMC-FX8 has a RAW mode) you could use a RAW processing software to try to recover parts of the highlights. Otherwise, you might also convert to B&W and even push the contrast a bit more to add to the graphical pattern. As I have seen in your portfolio, you are a great B&W photographer and seem to have the eye for patterns that are the essence of B&W photography.
