I love trees, Ian, especially with autumnal colours. Shooting the tree with the sun behind it can be very effective and is good to try. Some people like to capture the rays streaming through the gap. However, the strong light behind the tree has rendered it a silhouette, so all detail of the trunk is lost. It does give a good strong contrast and accentuates its shape, but I would have preferred to see much more golden foliage in front of the sun because the sun's effect tends to "wash out" any foliage in front of it, so it needs to be quite dense. I have done a modification where I did a drastic crop to eliminate all but the one tree and its leaves, placing the trunk on the left of the frame. Sometimes less is more. I reduced the highlights and adjusted levels to try to bring a more golden colour into the sun area and strengthen the silhouette.
