Default Trees

These are some trees at a park that I shot in Florida recently. I've only been into photography about the last 2 years. I am 18, and now studying photography at college. Let me know what I can improve. I know these will look "processed," but I personally love the processed look.

Also these are all HDR, with 6EV steps.

And if anyone is so brave, let me know how some of the photos I've taken look.



Thanks

rules on the forum state 1 photo per critique thread.

photo 1:
the sun glare is pretty distracting, and it seems to expose the rest of the
photo to dark. I also can't really pinpoint your focus point.

photo 2:
other than the cars in the parking lot, this is a great photo in terms of composition.
The HDR has created a big halo affect that is super apparent in the sky above the
tree. It's usually a detraction to have halo-ing.

photo 3: definitely my favorite of the three. The girl in the tree creates a great focal
point in such a large abyss of a tree. For my eyes, the green is a bit too saturated, but I
see what affect you are trying to go for. I'm not a big fan of the vignetting in the bottom
left and right of the grass.

It's great that you are able to go to school for something you are passionate about, I wish I
had the ability to go back to college and do the same, lol.

Urban trees are pretty difficult to shot cause of the buildings and lots of distracting elements, but you did it quite well. The presence of the girl in 3 makes it my fav.

Ok thank you for the replies and comments. And sorry about the 1 picture/post rule that I broke.
