    To include the bush in the foreground or not?

    Does the red line(plane) in the sky add or take away from the image?

    Chris,

    I'm a noob round these parts, but here's my 2 cents' worth.

    I like what your going for here, but I think it needs a little tweeking. I think that the house itself is a little too over exposed, and the foreground is too blurry. I do like the angle and perspective. I also like the sky and the bit of tree hanging down. You can leave or get rid of the red line, I don't think it does anything at all.

    If you were to take the shot again, I would suggest stopping down (or up, I get confused) so that the light from the house is better taken care of, and I would get rid of the grass/bush (?) in the front.

    But, like I said, I really like the overall effect.

    Hope that helps.

    Is that Santa on his sleigh up there? I'd crop the bush out as much as possible.

    do you think that the bushes would work if they were in focus?

    The bush based on your composition becomes your focal point. Just something to think about in the future.

    i Like but for my two cents i would creat more contrast between the sky and the ground and get rid of the red line
