Hello shaggyboy. I had a look in your gallery before I return to comment on this picture. You have captured some lovely sunsets, and indeed by using the "cloudy" white balance setting you get the orange/red spectrum more vivid. You have captured the same colour here but to me the colour looks flat. From the thumbnail, I couldn't tell what you have shot, ir didn't look clear. So I shall ask you a question you should be asking yourself: "what is it that I am shooting?" The picture uploaded tells me that you wanted to shoot the branches and the leaves under this light. As a design though (always try to see of there is a distinguishable pattern you can pick up) it looks and it is clustered in some places and because it is just a silhouette and the light the attention of the viewer gets quickly lost. Was it your intention to shoot this great colour and light? I think a minimalist approach could work, a focus to one branch? a bird sitting on a branch? a few leaves maybe? Your lens is a capable one, play and try with the zoom lengths to discover or re-discover what is around you. Have fun!

There needs to be a dominent subject or, at least, a pattern. There are jusrt too many similar branches and leaves here.
