Hi, Joanna,

I've just become acquainted with your gallery (via the workshop you posted on Stephen's Tuscany image). I was very glad to read your bio comments; we share some opinions.

In this photo, the late afternoon sun combined with the overcast sky create excellent lighting conditions for you. That, combined with the autumn color, make for this special appearance of what would otherwise be an ordinary scene.

I support your decision to crop the top of the orange tree, both on the left edge and on top. We don't need to see all of it. This tree serves both as a frame for the rest of the image and as a point of visual interest. As a frame, it doesn't need to be all there.

I agree with Michal's comment about the utility lines, although in this case they are visually subtle enough to not create such a worry.

I wonder a bit whether a harder cropping on the right edge might improve the balance in the composition. The idea would be to take off the last quarter of the image on the right, so the right-hand tree is positioned on the edge of the frame as a counterpoint to the orange tree. I've used both of my workshops already today, so I can't demonstrate now. But I think you can get the idea even without me doing this...

Anyway, kind regards from California,
- William

You're right - without colours and light this scenery would be an ordinary one, like many other tree shots.
I was surprised that my camera managed to capture it without filters and no PP was needed. The trees are not growing straight, so I tried to decide what should be vertical from the fence (not much success ;-)).
I know what you mean, no need for workshop (though I wouldn't mind it). Bit too tight for me. I even tried tight framing with just 2 trees framing the space between them, but it didn't seem to work.
Thank you for your visit and for expressing your opinion.
Best regards
