Really struggling for anything half decent to post. Back to the conifers or at least half a conifer. Tried removing the tree in the middle of the shot but couldn't do it without it looking obvious. More thought about composition required.

the tree in the middle does get in the way of the composition, however great tonal quality to this image.

Like the stump in the middle.
Not sure about the tree in the middle. On one hand it's distracting from the lone stump - which is great, while on the other hand it draws my eye up, back to the path to see what else there is along it.

I agree about the centre tree, also the background may help if it's slightly blurred. I've popped up a modified version. It's rough cloning, so you can see the patches, but it shows how I'd probably handle it.

Thanks Lucien, Simon and Nicholas. Think I prefer Pete's version. Thanks for the quick work, Pete. More practice at cloning me thinks, or better still take a better shot in the first place!.

Hi Iain, I agree with the comments about the tree, but being presented with such a cloning job, I'd probably not bother. Too much like hard work! Smile

I think you had chosen an interesting subject, and part from the tree distraction, it's well composed. Maybe a couple of inches to the left next time.

All the best,

Thanks Pete. On reflection probably shouldn't have posted this but very short of decent shots at the moment and its hard to resist the temptation to post something!

Hello Iain, I like the green bracken in front of the stump the way it contrasts...the actual wood and grasses are nice and colourful. Good shot.

Missed this one when you uploaded it Iain.

So easy to be wise after the event isn't it, however I don't feel any of the modifed versions work without the tree. If you'd just moved those few inches when taking it you'd have ended up with a cracker IMHO. Still all part of the learning curve, and a nice lesson for us all here I think. Thanks for uploading it.

I like the light and the colour in this shot Iain, I agree with Gwyn, how often just a small step to the side helps the composition but hindsight is a great thing. Smile
