just guessing the aperture.

it was a very bright picture, so I did calculations to b/w on multiply, then I blended that with overlay, then I did a b/w layer over that. and then I gave up and put curves on it to make it even darker.

Excellent job Sir Donald! I like the way the light plays on the brush.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Very interesting treatment of a bramble push, O Mighty Leader. Nice use of thirds and cradled as some have mentioned, in the brambles. I like the way the light catches the branches and intertwines with them, definitely gives it that brambly feel. I can almost feel the thorns snagging my clothes :-) Nice use of the Lensbaby to give it that slight zoomy effect.

Feel free to PM me,

I love this. Reminds me of waking up while camping. Must be the low perspective.

Interesting shot. Should have included more of the sunset in the frame, IMO
