Ok, so this is not original. In fact it's a tribute to the great Mr Angus Clyne (look him up) and he did it much better, but he should, he's a proper photographer - i'm still learning.

Anyway it's in the Northwood, Kinclaven, Scotland (haunted??.......hm!!). Straight exposure on a tripod that has had some saturation improved on the trunks in PS Elements. I used some fill flash on the nearby tree as it was a rather dull morning, but i love the way the tree is sort of waiting to charge the other.

Angus did it brilliantly, i hope mine does at least some justice.

Critique the exposure, but not the content as i can't really take credit for that.

Great angle, the roots lead you in to the second tree very effectively and beyond that the woods clearly have lots of depth. the greens and whites are a lovely combination and your flash is subtle and natural. I think the conifers on the left help frame it. The only constructive criticism I can think to offer is that the area of sky between the trunks of the main tree at the top R corner is a bit distracting. Moving your camera forward a bit might have got rid of this at the time but it's really not too distracting because at least there is a trunk on the frame edge. All in all an excellent image to be proud of. Smile

Hi Steve, welcome to EPZ.

The subject is really good. The exposure works depending on your intent, but imo its under. Using the flash was a good idea, but perhaps not enough power. The wide angle seems to have introduced a little vignetting.

The colour balance is also a little too cool, - again you may like it that way, but unless you intentionally adjusted WB, it should be a little warmer.


Ive uploaded a mod with a little increase in exposure, and colour balance less cool. Also a duo toned version.

A very nice shot,



Regards



Willie

A nice viewpoint. Composition is relevant because I have no idea who you are talking about and I have no photographic heroes as such. Everyone produces good images and poor ones. This is strong, but I might have considered a bit more light from the flash with a little spilling onto the main trunk to lift the brightness a touch.
