Tree trunk with shadows

The shadow of this tree fascinated me, but getting the shot was tough. I tried several different shots, and the shadow came out best in this one. At first I thought I'd crop out my shadow, but with the crazy angle of the trunk, I thought including me in the shot worked.

I agree. Your shadow just adds to the effect of the other shadows. The angle is impressive and visually gripping.
