Hi everyone! This was a shot I took of a tree while on a picnic last Saturday. I feel the dof needed to be a little more, however by the time I realized this, it was too late. What do you think? Warning! It is a large file!

Well, I see 132 people have looked at the image but no one has replied so - here goes. What were you trying to achieve is the question that comes to mind and what lens were you using? There is certainly a shallow DOF here so whatever it must have been wide open. The angle of the photo for me is all wrong since I know there are leaves behind but they are pointless in such a picture and do not create a creamy bokeh at all. I know my trees quite well but I am scratching my head from the available evidence to know just what type it is.

I'm not being hypercritical, just trying to get at what you were trying to achieve before I can comment on the style. If you reply then also post what equipment you were using and I'll try and be more objective.

Ditto: What are you saying here? This picture did nothing for me.

You need to size the picture down so we can at least see what it is.
