A small nocturne... a ball of a tree, a park and suburban lights in the background. All that was needed for this image.
The tree unkept and over grown, no trunk showing, oddly orb-like, lit by a orangey/yellow sodium light.
From my imagination after having seen so many trees like this one. A simple image kept interesting by placing the tree off center and especially, consciously controlling or designing the shapes of lights and darks. The background lights added to give the inky dark some depth.54
