Looks a little underexposed. I'd like to see some detail in the swamp.

Verytasteful composition of abeautiful scenery, in the first place! Oh, I, too, love the South in many respects : )

The timesI enjoy such scenes on my hikeswhen the tops of the trees are caught by thesunlight under a still bright sky, I ready myself,meanwhile, for thedisappointmentdue tothe limited dynamic range of the camera

Actually, underexposed as written above, for the land andnicely exposed for the sky on the other hand! I'd suggestshooting raw first and exposure blending or layers job (in case basic raw tweaking proves to be insufficient) for such scenarios. Below is a sketchy blending+layers version.

I agree with the underexposed... however... was the original underexposed on purpose to add the light/shadow effect.. kind of giving a 'darkness' feel of the photo, giving it a more artistic feel?



Just a thought.
