Greetings from the Critique Club!

Technically this photo has some strong points, in terms of basic things like focus, ok lighting and using the rule of thirds...but, sorry, it's just a very bland photo. The focal point seems to be the second tree trunk, and that's all folks! The title references a microcosm of a forest; here I see a few tree trunks and a lot of grass, which simply doesn't fulfill my idea of a forest. I don't like being harsh, but there is nothing to draw me in and make me want to look more. Even stunning light would have its work cut out for it here. Look at the top ten images, and learn.

Hope this helps.

I really liked the way you used the light shining at the edge of the forest. I gave an 8 on this one.

Taking a wild, semi-educated, guess ... "I also did the land scape, tried to show the lighting and the way it woked bringing up the bark patterns I am rewarded at 4.9487... ".

From the scores thread I'm guessing this is yours Nick? Couple more days and I'll find out for sure. :-)

... although it's slightly possible you could be talking about this ([thumb]1201758[/thumb]) one, but I think that one may be scoring higher than 4.9 (the lighting and focus on it is a little stronger than the one being commented on here).
