I thought this bit of dead wood would make a good lead-in for this shot. And the rocks helped, too.

Anyway, tell me what you think of this image!

The bruised sky is magic. The foreground works well...is that big black rock a distraction? Hold your finger over it and see what you think....great shot though...Andy I

Beautiful. The log makes for a great lead in and the sky is excellent, well captured.

Andy - You could have a point about the rock, but I'm not completely sure. Easy to try it out in Photoshop, though. Thanks!

And thanks for the comments, everyone!

Have to say the black rock helps keep your eye in shot as you would tend to view right up the tree trunk and out of shot. The word today is calming as said Smile

Thanks, Victor. I was trying to think why I finally decided to keep the rock in, but all I could come up with was 'balance', but I like your explanation a lot better!

I might have been tempted to take the dead wood closer into the bottom left corner, but not if it meant losing the rock. Perhaps you tried that, I don't know.

All these sunset shots are quite, quite beautiful and would grace anyone's wall. Don't stop doing these!!!

p.s. I held my finger over the rock and decided that my finger was a distraction :o)

He he.

I did try the suggested composition and decided it didn't work. I quite liked the rock, to be honest. I thought it balanced the composition.
