Took this photo a little while ago on the day after the new kids area opened at the Denver Botanic Gardens. I recently went back and looked at that folder and this picture stood out to me. I messed with the colors a little and hopefully made it look better. Does this photo stand out to me for a reason? Does it do anything for anyone?

It doesn't do anything for me I'm afraid - I realise it's intentional but the only part in focus is the tree in the foreground.

The colours are nice and the tree stump "has potential" but the background is distracting. So either get more bokeh or move to get a different background.

I like the gnarled look of the tree, age with new background.
maybe go back get some light at the back of the tree to give more seperation.

I am really new! Can you explain this setup? Or is it a software thing?

Hi
You would need to either get a shot with the sun postioned behind the tree, keep dof on tree, or use flash of camera like a hair/backlight to fall on edges, rim light.
what time of day was it?
maybe use the golden hour in the morning or night.

Agree. The background is too busy!

I think it was mid afternoon. Worst time I know. It seams I can never get out in the morning or at night. I think the sun was right above me a little. Also I almost never use a flash. Would this kind of picture require using the built in flash?

I kind of like the structure in the background. But I get your point of what is really the subject.

LOL

This is what Google and Bing translated this too


Silent night lit a cigarette, and find happiness and good in the past in the smoke, lonely, lonely, accompanying smoke in burning

Lol.. I have no clue what you said...

no it would require off camera flash to the rightbehind tree to set it off.
