I was just experimenting around the yard and I liked these, I hope you do.
All suggestions and criticism welcome.

I like the 3rd one, but a tighter crop may work better.

Same here: 3rd one gets my vote.

I got to appreciate textures this September while taking a photo class. You almost need to go macro sometimes or otherwise do cropping to get something interesting.

In your case it looks quite good. Here is how NOT to have it (symmetric, boring etc):

Yes I agree too. The 3rd pic gets my vote. It is the sharpest. Good contrast. Soft even lighting. I think on the 2nd pic, using the sigma 70-300 in macro mode would work better. Focus on one of the carvings on the surface of the bark.

I agree with that the texture picture is the best. The last one, it looks like what we call a Croton here in Florida, I think could benefit from greater depth of field or a different focus point. Because the leaf that IS in focus is not prominent the picture just looks OOF. Hope that helps, just $.02 from another newbie.

The third one is my favorite, too - getting a good picture of interesting texture isn't easy.

Thankyou everyone.
Yes I liked the third one for it's interesting colours and textures but the second one stirred my memories.
It was that swing I played on as a kid, my carvings have faded away but kids will always show their true love on this tree.
