I like this photo as it stands.

I'd also like to see a scale photo … something with a person or a car next to 
the tree to get a feel for the tree's size.

Good point. In case I didn't make it clear, artistically, it is an excellent photo, it would also be nice to see something showing its scale.

This Rochester Hills, Michigan  tree is said to be the largest Bebb Oak in the 
United States. It measures about ten feet in diameter at its base, and one of 
its weighty limbs rests on the ground. It
is estimated to be at least 250 years old, although that has never been 
determined for certain, because common testing means might injure it. Sometimes 
we’re so caught up in things, it’s hard to see the trees for the forest. I must 
have driven by this massive tree dozens of times since I arrived in Michigan 
and never noticed it. I only discovered it after a lady friend, who arrived 
here from Italy just a dozen years ago or so, pointed it out to me and asked if 
I would photograph it for her. I finally did so this morning, just before 
sunrise. It’s on a busy street, so my angles were limited. I cloned out a 
couple of street signs and a bit of pavement. The tree predates them by 
hundreds of years, so I figured its entitled to a clean environment.
