I see one pretty obvious mistake. I think it could have been better but I'm not quite sure how. Did a fair amount of LR messing around.

MnM, I quite like it.

Couple of things:
Lens flare, there is not much you can do about it after the fact.
Have you tried Lens correction in LR? Be interested to see the result.

I do like how the sky is muted in the background, makes your eyes wonder down the lines of trees.

Funny. I've had this for a couple of years and just noticed the lens flare right after posting it yesterday.
I'll give lr a shot.

Love the subject...and mood. My only knit would be could it have been shot lower and still gotten to much wide angle wonkiness.... to me it feels like the trees got cut off at the ankles. Think this would be an awesome metallic print.

Lens flare... hate it when that happens.....

I really like this shot, but yeah I'd try do do something about the lens flare. I've taken them out of pics before with the clone tool in photoshop.

I am not fond of converging lines. The lens is pointing up to some degree and this causes the trees to bow inward (converge). If you want to reduce or eliminate this effect consider using a shift lens. You can take 2 frames with a shift lens and turn this image pair into a vertical panoramic. Just a thought.
