Could there be a better crop of this, or what do you think of it? The original included some sky, but the sky was blown out so I cropped in just the trees.

I like it but IMO it needs some sky or other contrast

Ok, I thought the same thing as you, that it needed something else. Well I played with the Raw file, and here's a little bit of clouds that I recovered, I desaturated the sky because it didn't look right with the colors.

Hi,

Great photo and I like the sky desaturated. when I look at it I find my eyes going straight to the two brightest trees (just off centre to the right) and then they are pulled to the right of the image and the other trees. So i would crop some off the right and so the brighter coloured trees are towards the edge of the crop, take a fraction off the bottom and lose some of the sky.

Just my opinion of course! :)

Very nice, I like the mixing of the scattered colorful with the grayish trees. Great shot.

I like the colors and texture of the crop. The sky is blown out and composition doesn't work on that one IMO.

totally agree - it's beautiful. looks like a painting - I sometimes can't tell what's more beautiful - canvas or the real thing! but you've got a great looking shot - something I'd hang in my living room =)

Yes...you didn't leave any headroom above the two most prominent trees.

With Gimp you could select an area using the free select tool, and draw around the area you want to change. You could also use the quickmask tool(it's at the bottom left of the screen) and draw around which area you want to select. Then to desaturate just go to Colors>Hue-Saturation. I think there's a Gimp thread around here somewhere. But for my photo, I mainly used Bibble which is a Raw processing tool, and it makes it really easy to make adjustments to any color, or any selection.
