To Tree or Not To Tree

This stand of trees behind my home are always catching my attention. The sun sets behind it beautifully, and on a windy day it makes more rustling noises than anything else. But I can't seem to capture it right from my backyard. While playing with the image in Lightroom, I flipped and desaturated it; I love how it looks like blotted and dripped paint.
