So many elements in this photo but the obvious is the striking colour of the main subject: the tree. It stands in stark contrast to the monotone backdrop of grey stones and cool blue water reflecting the rock around it which gives this photo much visual impact. I like the relatively simple composition. What I do not know is the view above this tree but I wonder if a shot tilted slightly up with a wider aperture focused on near to the tree itself would reduce the amount of foreground rocks a bit and help the tree be a smaller more isolated subject. I thought on the water and a longer exposure to smooth its surface but I think the dapple of the waves presents a nice contrast to the sharp edges of stone seen throughout. My only changes would be to have it so the tree were lower in the frame and perhaps add a slight vignette.

Thanks for the great critique! :love: I think you're right, a shallower depth of field would've given this an entirely different feel, wish I would've tried it! There's always next year I guess! :D

This is a well thought critique.
I love the composition but agree it would be interesting to see the tree higher and lower in the frame. Personally I love the rocks, but the background and fore ground have so much impact in themselves that paired with the tree it is hard to decide what the focal point really is.
Regardless of any changes that could be made its a lovely photo.

The composition of this shot is really beautiful~! The colors are lovely too: the subtle bluish gray water is the perfect offset to the bright yellow orange of the tree!

the balance is excellent in this compostion and the focus point with the fall colours make a very good photo...:)

I still haven't seen Stranger Things! :faint: I really need to get around to it sooner or later so I can know what everyone is talking about, haha

I know that feeling, dude. I felt the same when the first episode of Stranger Things started and everyone was talking about while it was only avalable on netflix..
but hey hey I didn't mean to spoil it. Just made me thinking if they did really shot it in that place where you photographed this place.. Blush 
Pretty sure the series are gonna turn out to be very interesting. Promise you, I watched one season in few weeks or less.

I hear that it's amazing, and that you can't help but binge watch it once you see the first episode! I think I'm gonna make time for it next month, I have to be in the loop! :D
