The temperate rainforest around Vancouver Island (this is Hornby Island) is quite remarkable. The form of this tree, the moss on it, and the color in the crotch I found irresistible.

Remarkable indeed. I like this very much, Peter, especially the way you have concentrated on the space in the middle and included more trees in that space, with good light to attract the viewer's eye into that bit of background. You have lovely detail on the tree bark and moss, and the little bits of fern and foliage add interest to the shot. I'm glad you included the tree roots because they have wonderful shapes too.
The background trees slant to the right. They may have been exactly like that, but I feel they would look better if they were straight. I did this in my modification and, of course, as a result of straightening, I had to crop all sides, but I don't think the image has suffered too much. I also had a play with highlights and shadows. Lifting the shadows brightens the shaded part on the right, and brightening the image gives better detail to the bark textures. My second modification has less brightening, and I'm not sure which I like best.
It's a good idea to assign the sRGB colour profile to your picture, as this enables everyone to see the true colours.
Pamela.

MY OM-D, which, of course I did not have then, has a level indicator, which I do now pay attention to when I am shooting, and I find very useful.

A nice image, but all basically one colour. A complimentary, in a suitable place, would add that bit of impact. (Red/magenta) My eye travels through the tree and out the back. I might crop in a little on the left to remove the bright area.

Its a nice shot. For me, a little spoiled by those out of focus bright leaves bottom left, but with those out of the way, and a little toning down of highlights it works well. I shorter lens, giving a longer, wider view could be another option for this scene. The shutter speed was too slow for the focal length, so I assume you used available support.
