The first thing that appealed to me was the bright colours and new growth of the flowers, in contrast to the withered dead leaf’s below.

I feel the contrast in colour adds depth to the photo, whilst the surrounding leaf’s almost act as a frame.

The shape of the tree struck me with its cascading leaf’s and long extending branches. there is something almost magical when you stand under and look at the sky. The leading line of the tree trunk guides your eye to the branches, leaves and the sky beyond. The contrast between the dark of the tree and the light of the sky adds interest and depth.

This shot was chosen due to the symmetry of the tree in the centre of the shot. This is amplified with the addition of the three benches lined behind the tree. The rule of thirds has been followed with the wall clearly defining the  lower third. There is also a vertical background definition between the building and skyline.
