Wide Angle Tree

This tree during the winter time has captured my thought process and imagination for several years. I have tried to get a shot I was happy with but have not succeeded until now. While I am not 100% happy with this shot I am happier with it than any other shot. To get this shot I needed a wide angle lens one wider that I was able to get with my crop sensor body . Also wider than I have a lens nope scratch that I have a very wide angle lens it is on my phone. Lets try it out. Also allows me to try out the RAW feature on my phone. So I set it to "pro" mode and adjusted the iso aperture and shutter speed to give me a starting point that I was happy with . Then I took the image. The tree reminds me of a cross between a horror type image and a very antique type shot. So that is the direction I went with the post processing . I do see some things I want do different for the next time but for now this is the best shot of the tree that I have taken .

I dont know if it is my bias towards the image but it kind of reminds me of an old  polaroid
