Hi Bruce,

Scott here from the Critique Club.

I really like the lighting in this pic from looking through your past challenge entries I see this is one of your better exposed pics. Your early challenge entries look like they suffered from poor exposure and I see some good improvements in your current photos. I do think that photo is lacking some composition. And didn't quite fit the challenge for complexity. I voted a 4 for this pic. For a photo that I feel didn't fit the challenge 4 is then purely based on how much the photo appeals to me. So please understand that I really found this pic interesting. I think you were in the right place at the right time for this one and if you could have played with you angle of composition it could have been a hit. As is your photo leaves me wanting more...it just doesn't fully satisfy me.

I do know that the Fuji website has some software updates posted. I know they did wonders for my Fuji 3800. the like is here..Fuji Downloads
I also wanted to add that your "Snail on a rose", "Neon Reflections", and "Fire on Fraser Island" pics are some of my favorites from your profile.
If you have any questions or comments please feel free to PM me.
Scott.

After I posted your critique I found this link in the forum that might be useful for you....Composition

While the pattern is complex, there is nothing in the picture for me to really focus my eyes on, leaving a somewhat bland combnation of brown colors. Exposure is pretty much right on. It is difficult to get a lot of detail on digital shots that have a lot of intricate patterns (especially when you have to compress the shots), this means that the pinecones don't hold any interest except to make a person wonder if they are droppings or pine cones.
