Cornell University Engineering Quad Oak Tree

I've been looking at this incredible oak tree on the Engineering Quad at Cornell University for a long time.  The other day I noticed that around noon time the southern Sunlight would shine through two building to create great contrast of lighting on the leafless branches.

I like the effect of the wide angle lens that created a interesting effect with the upper branches.

One final touch with HDR processing created a Tim Burton type of creation.  I feel like the branches are getting ready to reach down and grab me.
