    This may not be your style, Jeremy, but I wonder if you could lower the exposure and then “pop the whites” so that the sunlit tree tip, the white bark trees, and the stream in the background stand out more dramatically. To my eye, the image could use more contrast, but that may not fit with what you want.

    It’s not a bad idea, David. I’ll have another play with it.

    Was it something like this you had in mind, David?

    Yes, that is “better” IMHO. How would it look to you with an even darker background and more pop to the yellow and white trunks? I could show you rather than describe what I am trying to say. You know, picture worth a thousand words 😉 If you wouldn’t mind, but of course it is your image and I do like drama.

    Play away, David. I’m very seldom possessive about any of my photos and I’ll be interested to see your take on this one.

    Hi Jeremy,

    what just occurred to me on no.2 is a pattern of diagonal lines (from left to bottom right), they create a fan-shape. The lit up tree is an aberration in that pattern. it would be interesting to see what happens if you accentuate that further. Although this is a natural/organic subject, the actual graphic appearance is of a “geometric nature”…

    Regards

    Frank

    Here’s more what I had in mind, Jeremy:

    Maybe with a little more saturation of the yellow.

    I like it, David. You’ve carried the darkening I did (at your suggestion) even further and it’s effective, particularly the way in which the white trees stand out.

    Thanks to Jeremy for finding this, and to both you and David for bringing out its potential. 🙂
