This is a very difficult image imo - it tells a good story - but the fg trunk (which is of course essential to the story) doesn't do us any compositional favours. There is a lack of colour variation and contrast and even the textures are all a little 'samey' The mg and skyscape are both excellent but if you try and crop bottom up as in my mod you start to loose the sense of the trunk. Got me beat to be honest.

Best wishes

Sorry Robert I have to say I like the composition of the original better Smile But I agree with a little more contrast

I complely agree (head bowed in shame) - I am sure there are buttons on PS and PSP that will do this. Apologies Steve for uploading a second class mod but it might just give you a few ideas anyway?

The foreground tree trunk looks a little soft to me. Maybe a smaller aperture would have corrected that? Also, I think the time of day you took the shot has led to a rather flat image- taking earlier/later would create more interesting shadows etc.

I agree the lighting is a bit flat, but overall a good image. Take a look at look at my mod - and effort to add contrast to fg and sky.
