Nice exposure considering the tricky lighting. Love the shadows.

Sections of this photo are very dark. Taking multiple shots at different exposures and merging them together would help that.

I like this. Interesting shadow play. I think I'd have tried a little light painting to brighten the upper part of the tree trunk in the foreground.

The foreground tree and base shadow are amazing. The background tree not so much.
