    That's some type of shelf or bracket fungus surrounded by lichen, which technically are not fungus.

    I think I'd like to see the lichen in focus better and maybe a little more saturation to perk up the interest of the image. I can't decide if I like the crop or not...maybe I'd like it better slightly bumped to the left, but I just don't know.

    I like it, but it seems like the canvas is split exactly in half to me. I can't decide if that's good or bad.

    By the way, hello from a fellow Huntsvegan.

    In the original, I had it in the dead center of the picture.. Then i went back and did a rule of thirds crop on it.


    Eminart, what part are you from? I technically don't live IN Huntsville, I live about 10 minutes south of it.

    I currently live right in the middle, near UAH. I grew up around the Boaz area though.

    You split the frame in half and there's too much area in the frame that's out of focus.

    I find myself looking more at the sharp bokeh than the subject itself.

    Perhaps it would be a bit better had you stopped down a bit more (the lighting looks like it would have allowed f/12 or smaller.) And the trees in the back surely would have remained out of focus (and probably less bright). And I agree that the frame is too evenly split, which allows the viewer's eye the option of going to the empty half (background half). Perhaps a selectively centered vignetting in some graphics program would help alleviate the distraction a bit. Not a bad shot, just not a great one.
