Interesting image. However, my eyes are a little confused where to look. Ie. At the branches of the trees or at the house in the background. I've seen something similar to this before but it that image the photography was standing closer with the trees almost above him. This way he was able to use the branches to frame a lake that was in the background. I really like that image and I actually have it saved as my wallpaper on my computer. I'll send it to you if you like so you can get a better idea of what I'm on about. Perhaps if you were closer to the house you could try that technique? If you do, I'd be keen to see how it turns out.

There are some nice colours in your image but I think there is a bit of over-exposure in the top left hand corner. Are you using a SLR? If so, maybe a polarising filter would help?

I think you could give it some sort of autumnal title, Xiaoli.
The bright sunlight on the left, as well as the heavy branches, distract the eye from the scene. I think the tree on the right is a nice framing feature, but there is far too much on the left. It's a nice scene, with the sunlit water bottom left. I took up the challlenge, and removed all of the tree from the left of the picture, then added a sunburst effect and simply adjusted levels and selectively saturated the autumn leaves and rooftops. I hope you like it.
Pamela.

beautiful framing but i should say that if you want to frame a picture, you should be very careful because on the one hand it looks excellent and on the other hand it gives a little distraction to the subject. so you should do a balance between the two. here the branches of the tree occupy the most portion of the image and the house, i suppose your subject, is positioned behind the right hand side tree.


another point is that the highlighted part of the image at the left side has a bit distraction. both this problem could easily be sorted out, if you could position yourself slightly more at the left side to take this shot.


Hope it helps,
somnath
