A beautiful view of a sheltered wooded area. The sunlight coming through the canopy had a brilliant soft golden quality.

James, you have the start of a good composition here with the foreground stone leading in to the image well. I think something is not quite right with the upload as it is also looking quite 'blocky' and very little seems in focus, what software are you using to prepare the image?

Hi James, welcome to EPZ! I hope you enjoy the Junior Gallery and that you look at and comment on the shots you see in here! If there is anything you think we can do to improve it, Please let me know!

This shot is well composed, and I like the rock in the fg. It does look a little out of focus, tho', have to agree with Geoff, if you DO have some software you can use to sharpen the image, it would really improve it Smile

Has potential but I should listen to Mrs Fran's advice Smile

You've seen the shot and that is the first, and I think, most important part, but either take heed of the advice above or take a tripod and set the smallest possible f number to get the depth of field. Keep looking, keep shooting I'm sure there will soon be a twenty plus shot from you.

Thanks for all the nice comments.

Geoff: I was using a free piece of OSS called "Digikam", which came with my OS. I noticed the blockiness when you mentioned it and resized the original with a different piece of software. You can see the new one here .

And thanks Phil, but just one thing - I think you mean "largest" possible f-number...! I thought that the trees looked slightly better just out of focus. It might have been the wrong call, but I quite liked the result!

Thanks again.
