    IMHO your opinion matters most

    lol, Well... Thanks for that, but what do you think of the photo?

    The reason I said my opinion doesn't matter is, if I'm the only one who thinks my pictures are nice, then I'm failing at what I want to do. I want to take pictures, have fun, and produce photos people can enjoy. So yeah...

    I think the problem here is the sun is smack bang in the middle of the shot , not only that but the tree also takes center frame kinda like a heavy crop. I'd like to see the tree to one side with the sunset , perhaps further away.

    If you look at other sunset shots you will see that many of them have the sunset to one side.

    Hope this helps :)

    Well... I wasn't actually going for a sunset shot, just an interesting (yet pretty ((in my opinion))) picture. But, perhaps I failed lol.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I was just standing there, looked up and saw the sun bursting through this big old tree, and everything just seemed to come together. I mean, it was centered, the sky behind it is pretty, the tree itself is nice, the sun with some lens flare was pretty. I think it just all came together to make an interesting and pretty picture.

    How about the rest of the background ... was that in your vision ?

    If not, crop it out ... you will see a different picture.

    Was that what your vision was ?

    ... think really hard about that, as most photographers don't actually realize what it was that attracted them to the shot.

    I see... So you're trying to get me to realize what I had in mind when I took the pic, to expose it's full potential? Something like that?

    Yes, the Eye/Brain is very selective.

    Example ... if I saw the light beams through the trees ... everything else would have been ignored by my mind.
    I would then crop the image tightly to show that.
