Your Photo: Our Critique

This photo was taken with an Olympus, with an exposure of 1/500sec at f/4.7, ISO 64. The background of this image adds to the scene. The old tree has great character but is overexposed, a touch of curves will bring out more detail in the wood and help to fix the exposure. With bright sunlight overhead this is one of those times you should bracket your exposures to be sure you get the right one.
