    Can't really decide if I like this or not. It didn't turn out quite like I had envisioned it at the time, but what do you all think?

    The sky looks kind of underexposed to me... and I'm still trying to decide how I feel about the sun being behind the tree :lol:

    What was it you *had* envisioned?

    Well...more warmth to it. More vibrance to the mountains in the background. As I could see it in real life, the sun was less prominent and the tree diffused the sunlight more. Definitely seemed to be more "orange" glow to it in person. I think a lot of it had to do with the angle. If I had gotten the sun more directly in the branches of the tree, I think it would have been better...not really sure...just seemed better in person at the time :) But then so did the rest of the pictures I took yesterday :)

    I dont like how the tree in the middle bisects the frame.

    Underexposed! Enlighten me on what you have envisioned. I think you want the sunlight to appear in between the tree branches...shining brightly?

    Looks like the tree is smacked right in middle, blocking the beautiful sun...mmm....

    A few posts up you'll see my description (as best I can) for what I was going for. So...if I were to go back and try again (might sometime), I should put the tree to the side. I WAS trying to get the sun shining THROUGH the tree, but I don't suppose that prevents me from putting the tree at the side, and I do agree that that would feel less "forced" than having the tree in the middle. Then make sure to expose it better. Perhaps would focusing on the mountain help? Or should I focus to infinity? Or focus on the tree? And, as said, make sure I get the top of the tree :) Or should I just scrap the idea entirely?
