Your Photo: Our Critique

This tree shot has been sent in by Alex Crawley. This is a perfect example of one of those times you have to think for the camera. The camera, set in program mode, has overexposed the image. As a visual photograph this is a start.

This tree shot has been sent in by Alex Crawley. This is a perfect example of one of those times you have to think for the camera. The camera, set in program mode, has overexposed the image. With some work on the levels you can achieve a better exposure and deepen the color of the sky. As a visual photograph this is a start. With bare tree branches it is hard to isolate a specific set of branches resulting in random distracting branches. For example the branches sneaking in on the left of the frame are distracting and I might clone them out and if possible include the remaining part of the branch that is in the bottom right. This can sometimes be accomplished with a step one direction or the other to improve the framing of the shot.
