I'm sorrry... but to me it just looks like an underexposed snapshot of a tree branch. Was there something that you were trying to do with this picture?

I took the shoot during night, it was dark and definitely underexposed. I just feel the composition of the branches interesting. Nothing more to say.

i can see what you where going for but maybe if the comp was a bit different orientation... the 2 trees on the horizon distract from the main branch

Yah, I'm not seeing anything interesting here either. Maybe if the ground were showing a bit. Or maybe more of the tree with the main branch here. This sort of reminds me of how an accidental exposure looks like. You know when you're taking the camera out of the bag and accidentally hit the shutter release while it's pointed upwards.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

Thanks for the comments. Sometimes I saw something interesting but when it comes into a picture, it's just not what I imagined. Any tricks?

I like the idea a lot. With branches, I like to use back-lit situations where the sky is really contrasty (not really a word), for example, at sunset. In this case, I would get the exposure from the sky and then focus on the branches.

I like this idea. Get the branches as a silhouette.

Turn on image editing and you will get some great ideas.

A lot of us shoot a scene like this, because it grabs us at the moment. I swear, when I first saw the image I thought it was one of mine.

The trick here is to keep shooting. At some point either of 2 things will happen. You will realize this location is not good for the type of image, or you will find the angle and all other parameters that make a good image and make it work.
Time, practice and asking questions will eventually help you at this.

Also one other note - an image is a personal endeavor. You may love it and others don't. That is okay, the "moment" is all yours and that is a big part of photography.


just a few of my thoughts...
Pierre
