There were so many opportunities for composition.
I liked the shroud over the tree in the distance.
On the full size file people are clearly walking in the background.

Greetings from the Critique Club

Namibia. Wow, our members sure do get around!

Good colors in this bright and spare image. I very much like the orange in the hills contrasting with the complementary blue of the sky.

What bothers me a bit, compositionally, in this image is that all the interest seems to be in the right side of the frame. The rather featureless left end of the log and the somewhat over-exposed sand don't hold my interest very long, while the branches both in the log and the trees way back are intriguing and worth a second look. In tricky lighting situations like this, I always like to bracket my shots.

While I hope this information is helpful to you, it's all just my opinion.

This is only your third submission. I hope you find time to submit many more, as I look forward to seeing more images from you in future Challenges.

Very clear and sharp. Some areas of the upper tree branches look a bit 2 dimensional.... a cut and pasted look. Same for the edge of the hill in the background. But still a lovely photo.
