The only thing I did here was to highly saturate the image.
I liked the clump of trees and thought that it would be suitable for a flora entry, seeing that I am not really into flowers.

Thank you kindly for your comments, Susan.

The shot was actually taken at about 3.45 pm in the afternoon.

I think that many of the trees are various types of gum trees found in Western Australia. Once planted they grow like wildfire.

Not sure why they have no bark.

I welcome your comments and I thank you once again.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Yeah, flowers are kinda done to death, and trees definitely count as flora. Main problem here is lack of cohesive compostion, and the lighting looks like high noon or close to, which always makes getting a good shot difficult as shadows are hard and dense and the light very harsh and white. Shooting later in the day, or at sunrise, would have resulted in a vastly different quality to the light here.

I'm intrigued by the trees with no or little bark on them - up here, trees in that situation are basically dead! m Meanwhile please keep shooting and entering.
