    well it looks nice but something is off...i think it's the lack of subject i just don't know where to look at ..
    plus i think the focus is off too
    the bright spots in the background are too distracting, also for some weird reason i thought the photo might look good if it's flipped clockwise..

    I think that you would do with a smaller aperture. Not enough of the leaves are in focus for my taste. I do like the glow around the leaves though. That is nice.

    you have the right idea, but the top right corner is underexposed whereas the center is a bit overexposed, so crop it so that its only the center! cheers

    It's very soft because you shot at 200mm at 1/125 at 200mm you should be shooting over 1/200

    I gotcha. So if I crop it down to cut out all the extra stuff and the bright spot, it should be a lil better, right?

    Again, if I crop it down to remove all the leaves not in focus, it should make it better?

    Im begining to see a repetition in these suggestions lol.

    Ok, so I croped it in Photobucket because I dont have any PP software besides Photomatix. How do you like this version?

    That cropped version completely changes the photo.

    ITS SOOOOO MUCH BETTER! much much better.

    It keeps your attention and whats best it the 'luminosity' of the leaves sticking out with the white outline, and when cropped, it really makes you focus on it :)

    Good Job!

    It does bring the focus in, but I kind of agree that I like portrait feel, but you go with what you got.

    I don't have a problem with the original shot. It's not over/underexposed - its a plan with part of it in shade, and part of it covered in a very reflective surface (snow). Look at the histogram; histogram don't lie.
