This tree stood out from rhe woods behind. Mainly because it was fool of dry rot. The branches on the ground was a result of a stormy day early in the week. I will be doing a bit of manipulation and cropping but as this is my first upload to this site i thought i would send it as taken.

Image is over-exposed. Am guessing that it was in heavy shadow, and the camera has compensated by over-exposing. Main issue is composition. Although the tree is in the centre of the frame it does not hold the main focus, and is lost against the backdrop of foliage behind. Would be worthwhile re-visiting, if you can, and try a few other perspectives.

unfortunately your main subject is lost against the background foliage. You may find that going to black and white will help provide some separation, but in reality a different angle may be more successful.

Thanks for the feedback some very good sugestions and I will probably revisit this site. that is if it stops raining.
B&W is a good sugestion and by playing with the sharpening and contrast I think I can make the subject tree stand out. I will then crop to the base of the tree to cut out some of the distractions.Smile
