you don't have a powerfull subject....There are to many objects and they can't atract atention in a good way...the trees don't have space for obtaining suficient atraction power...Next time, try to get more of the sky...of the road... shoot from a distant point, and/or with a wider angle.

Tony:

First off, love fall pics. Great color. Try for a more interesting frame
next time though. Take the left tree and pull it to the left. Make
sure you dont meter for the sky and meter on the trees or the ground
cover. That will eliminate the dark areas in the photo. Otherwise
try the background compensation filters in Photoshop to bring out both
the sky and the dark areas in the bottom of the photo. Believe me
I have had the same trouble metering a shot like this and Photoshop
has saved my bacon. lol

Thanks Paul, I will give PS a go again, obviously went OTT when I edited it.

tony


ps: I have had another try editing with PSE4 and I think I need to scrap this shot and go and take another.

thanks for the tips.

tony

i like the placement of the road here, andthat nice country side feel to it.. just didnt quite have a wide enough angle lens to pull it off though.. the cropping on the left tree is awkward.. this would work well with more sky, and an interesting sky.. and just a little wider lens.. still, i like where you are going with this one, good eye!

I will try this one again, take my wide lens next time, unfortunately the sunset was behind me, as was the reds and oranges in the sky.

thanks Dustin for your comments
