While I agree that this one is missing something, I do like the composition – and this looks like it wasn't an easy scene to isolate. I'm under the impression that this could make a nice B&W image; a conversion, perhaps a high-contrast one, might enhance the whimsical forms of the tree trunks. Just my 2 cents, of course.
I like it for what it is, a typical Australian scene. I wish it was slightly higher though to take in more of the rock formation at the top, but without losing any of the bottom because that is pretty spot on.
Lloyd Never make the same mistake twice, there are so many new ones, try a different one each day Flickr
Yes I agree with Ian re the focal point, that's where my eye goes and the trees in the foreground lead me in. I find the image quite appealing.
But I find I'm wanting to see more of the rock cliff at top of frame. I don't know if you had room to squeeze more into the image but I feel there's a great image there but we aren't getting to see all of it.
There are some wonderful subtle colours here but I want to see more of the scene. I hope that makes some sense.
No way is this a boring shot, far from it, but i reckon there's a bit "missing".
IMO this tree is the focus point. This tree is different to the others in the photo. Why? What lives in it? What made it different? JMTs
Yep you're right .. that is the focus point ... I guess I am just a sheep on the odd occasion. That is the greener of the trees amongst the rusty/greens and actually it is what caught my eye initially .. to be able to compare it with the other trees and see the difference in colouring.

[QUOTE=Dread Pirate Roberts;101051][QUOTE=Dread Pirate Roberts;101051]Thank you all, I will try the B&W.
I felt the restriction of the angle and feel it painfully everytime I go for bush-walks lugging around the 24-70 F2.8 lens (on my crop body) instead of my 16-85 variable aperture.
>>>does not matter lens you have it will leave you wanting something different. We cannot get every photo we see. Try using one fixed focal lens as I have been doing lately and you well see what I mean
That being said I was trying to get a typical bush feel to it with it in mind some people, particularly overseas forum members, may find it interesting even though the majority of Aussies may not.
>>>still has an appeal to this "bushie"
I didn't think about making a subject out of one tree at the time and wish I'd thought of it.
>>>We cannot think of everything every time; just tuck the idea away for next time. Photography is never end learn journey.
I have previously shot this same location wider and never felt I could do it justice though
>>>wide angle is not always to best for landscapes. As they say; get in close and then get in closer.
Bugga; I have deleted the B+W i did. may do another as a guide when I have time.
Cheers for now; IanB
I'm always right all the ti......ummm.... some of the time GoogleFlickr
