    Your shots are different and I can't respect that. I think if I looked at it long enough, it would start to grow on me. I don't know what you did or how you did it but if it looks good to YOU, then it's fine.

    Also, when folks are honest, they aren't necessarily being "mean". ;)

    From what I've seen, you really need to work on your focus or shutter speed (or both).

    Also, it's best to learn by posting unedited images - otherwise we really can't tell if what we're seeing is error or something you purposely did in post.

    I made another post in one of your other threads, (the water fountain one I believe) that supported your efforts - however my honest opinion is that you need a LOT of practice before you start even thinking about post processing effects.

    If you take a dump in a toilet, there's a turd in the water.
    If you pour blue dye in it, you have blue water with a turd in it.

    Common denominator = turd.

    I'm confused... this photo is dated 2007.

    But anyway, I see it's shot in full auto. I'd recommend learning every aspect of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO and the relationship between these 3 elements. This will give you far more control over what the final picture will look like than gimp, photoshop, or any other editing program.

    If you use Firefox as a browser, they have an exif viewer as an add-on.

    This allows you to right click any web image and see whatever exif data is available:

    Well, basically the problem is that there isn't an interesting subject. You're looking up a tree, we don't see the base of the tree.. what are we supposed to find interesting about this other than the fact that it's a tree?
