I'm not an expert on this kind of image so take this for what it's worth - it seems a little flat to me. Its nice and sharp, but the overall tone is just too gray if you will - nothing jumps out at you. Also the tree trunk on the right is distracting - again, that's just me you understand - my opinion is usually the opposite of everybody else's. :>)

I still like it though - it's interesting.

Thanks for the advice, Tom. I agree with the image being a little "flat" so I added a some contrast. It's still not quite right, but better. Regards

Tree doesn't help frame this shot and the black shadows are too scattered. Wouldn't say the shot is flat cause you have zones. Just that the light doesn't come together. Vignetting would help take out the tree and confusion.

Thanks Bruce & George, for your comments. The worst thing is to post a photo & get no feedback- especially when you're trying to learn and get better. No one would comment if they didn't care, so I am appreciative.
