Beautifully done Melanie, great idea to use the tree to defuse the light, love the highlights picked up on the grasses and stones, makes a stunning image,

This is very very good, Really like your placement of the sun behing the tree silhouetting the tree and the colours captured on the rocks and grasses! Wow!

Hi Melanie,

Much as I like some of your other pix, this one just isn't doing it for me.

This may be personal taste, but I think the central placement of the tree, sun and FG rocks is just crying out for a vertical shot where it would work a lot better, imo. The two sides really bring nothing to the subject and, on the left, may even detract from it with the second tree and the cloud disrupting the visual harmony. Try an experimental crop and see what you think...

Hope you don't mind some honest and well-intentioned critique in amongst the 'wows' and the 'awesomes'...

Lovely image.............

Best viewed in a darkened room wher all that subtle light comes out and dazzles. I love the little star peeping out from between the branches.
Lovely as ever Melny.
