    I think I'd prefer it more if all the cones were in sharp focus.

    I agree with you wholeheartedly. I do like the fact that it's a different shot than ones I've seen, but it definitely is not the quality I would like.

    It did, however, get my first and only response so far on this site. So.. yay

    looks like you used central focus and hence focused on the green in the background.

    next time, just focus first on the cones, then recompose and shoot. Also, getting more of the top of the cones into the frames would be an option.

    I like some aspects of this composition, such as the trunk of the tree being well placed, and the cones being in the very close foreground.

    ^ Thank you for your comment. Great advice.

    I've had a horrible time breaking my habit of snapping a photo and moving right to the next thing. I've grown a whole lot in the past year or two, but I am no where near professional, for sure.

    I appreciate the feedback!
