No it's quite nice actually, but I would get closer to the ground to lessen the view of the brown an green grass fields while still framing the image with the overhead branches

... or try crop out the lower 1/3 to make a nice panorama!

Jack,

Yes, the cropping suggested would also make the shot adhere more closely to the suggested 2/3rds rule for composition purposes.

I tried cropping it by various amounts, and I didn't think this improved it.

I like it the way it is.

Yes, I'm afraid it's just too ordinary. Such a shame we live on a planet with so much beautiful scenery.

Thanks Herb ! I think I agree with you, but I'm just an amateur and don't know the rules of phtography, so they're probably right. And Joshua, I know what you're saying, but I guess I just wasn't thinking about everybody from all different parts of the world. Living in Tennessee I see simular scenes to this pretty regularly so it just seems common to me. So the real shame is that when some people ops: are around beautiful scenery so often, they take it for granted. Thanks for reminding me that I'm lucky to living with beautiful scenery to look at.
