55th place
This unique twisted and mangled tree really captures my attention and was by far the favourite of the week. It looks a bit like a person throwing their arms in the air in frustration and the scattered branhes and leaves are the hair that is in a tangled mess. The gritty black and white, i feel, add to the messy feel. Taken at Alfords Point NSW Australia.

Focal length: 21 mm
Shutter speed: 1/40 sec
Aperture: F10
ISO: 800
Notes: Looking up at the tree with a 800 ISO to counter the small apeture. Handheld with image stablisation on, standing close (about 2 metres) and looking up to the tree to try to accentuate the trunk. Black and White conversion based on "Ansel Dark" but amended to suit my taste with noise etc.
