Difficult subject this Gordon. The contrast range is high - too high in this instance for your cameras sensor to capture the full range (what is usually referred to as dynamic range). Shooting later in the day when the light is less intense is likely to give you better results. I do like how you've tried to use a line of trees within the composition, also I like the fact that you've grounded the trees by showing the base of the first trunk - unless your after an abstract image, grounding is usually a good idea.

Anyway I hope to see more posts from you soon.

Always evocative the drama created by light and shade Gordon. Good composition, agree with previous comment but full marks for giving the subject a go. Ron.

Hi Gordon, Just a note about Deeping C/C. I know several of the members as they were part of my postal portfolio. Pam Carter ( specialist in butterflies ) Denis Cawdron ( Natural history images ) Nigel Turnbull ( N/H also ). When you meet them mention me to them, they became good friends within the postal circle. Ron.
Hi Ron, Will do and let you know how we get on, keep in touch.Gordon & Mags

I like it but as Adam says - there is just too much contrast in the scene. Nice composition though.
