    I kind of like this picture and would like to share with you...

    What say you and perhaps some comments?


    Thanks for viewing.
  2. Nice idea and well rendered. If you allow, I would go with some suggestions. First, the image could be more dynamic putting the main focal point out of the center and using the reflection on the branch as a diagonal leader. Also, the sun reflection on the leaves creates very strong highlights that are almost impossible to avoid. Maybe here the use of a polarizer filter would help, but most certainly composing the image to have sun rays filtering through the leaves would solve the burning highlights problem and reveal details of the leaves against the dark background.
