Nothing terribly exciting, but I quite liked the shadows.

Not just the shadows by spacejack (2.00 / 0) #1 Thu Nov 23, 2006 at 07:18:45 AM EST
I like the overall shape and composition created by the shadow and tree trunk. The light coming through the leaves is cool too.

Nice pic! But there's something wrong... by greyrat (2.00 / 0) #3 Thu Nov 23, 2006 at 09:18:36 AM EST
I'm not sure what. I think it's in the crop of the composition. Let me think about it. I agree with you on the shadows.

Nice. by Metatone (4.00 / 1) #4 Thu Nov 23, 2006 at 10:00:31 AM EST
I'd crop it as squarish or slightly taller, keep the width the same, and measure the height to it, starting from the bottom.

The shadows are the real picture, so cropping off some of the tree makes sense, IMO[+]. Also, then you get a nice tension between the dark at the bottom and the white at the top, instead of the dark, white, azure blue sky transition, which is harder work, IMO[+].
