Hi Stephen and welcome to EPZ, hope you stick around and enjoy. A nice first upload - as this isin the critique gallery I'll try and make a few wpoints about it.

on the face of it it hits a lot of the right buttons - you've used a silhouette effect and framed the sunset in the trees, and the exposure is quite well controlled in that you've no large areas of white burnout. My main criticisms are i) that it's a bit insipid/washed out looking. I'd suggest if you use an image editing programme, boost the saturation slightly to give it a bit more colour, though not too much to make it look unnatural, and ii) i think while the fraing idea is good, it's let down by being unbalanced, with a "full frame effect on the right and a broken up one on the left. maybe by moving around a bit you could have found a viewpoint with a more perfect frame.

But hey, it's a nice pic, I hope you can take something from this, but they're just my thoughts. As i said above, stick around and enjoy, and keep the uploads coming
