Autumn Beech

By salopian
I was attracted by the sunlight through the leaves together with the tracery of the branches and tried to get something other than a straight record shot, as these tend to be regarded with scorn by some "experts" I await the verdict with some trepidation!!

There is nothing wrong with what you have done here. Exposure correct and a pleasant autumn shot. The problem, and this is a bit unfair, I know, is that nothing makes it stand out from many similar images. So, a good image that probably was more impressive to the eye at the time.

You are in the subjective realm with this. Technically good, content a personal thing.

Perhaps a little less exposure, and a colour boost can improve this. You need to be careful when uploading inages that you assign the sRGB colour space to it. This one has no colour space assigned, and many viewers will not see it correctly.

Loaded mod.

Thanks for the thoughts - I think Paul sums it up well and Willie's mod helps a lot, though I am not sure what you mean about colour space - something I will have to look into.

I like this sort of shot - it is always good to look up every now and then! For some reason these shots tend to work better in a more square format. For me the interest is in the diagonal branches and the curved trunk. The vertical one become a distraction and leads no where - the other branches curve into the image. I think a square-ish format would work better and I would start the crop where the dense foliage covers the vertical trunk and forms a natural frame - i will try to demo on a mod. Steve
