Greetings from the Critique Club!

Lovely shot of a birch forest with a sapling pushing through and making itself known. It's all but saying 'Lookit me, I'm old enough to have leaves that turn with the seasons too!' The crookedness of its trunk just highlights the struggles it's already been through, while all around it the much older trees are all tall and straight. I like the oof trees, they add some depth.

OK, now for the much-dreaded nitpick time. Mostly, I find the overall look of the pic around your focal point to be very washy and flat, probably due to the very high ISO. I think some global contrast and saturation, to help give greater depth to the trees and colour to the leaves of the sapling, would help a lot.

Hope this helps!

I think if you'd tamed the highlights in the deep left portion of this you might have gotten that little one to stand out a bit more. It gets lost here.

They're so cute when they're young.
