Awesome! I absolutely love the colors and light rays.

Really nice shot. The tree on the left makes it, but the colour balance seems off, at least for the sky which seems a bit green.

Really nice.

My only neg would be subject is almost dead center. Technique is very good.

The real impact of this image is what you the titled it through the tree and moving the main subject to a visually more interesting spot in the frame brings more impact to that area. Now the best time to do this is when the image is exposed. Something like this crop would be better in my opinion.

This crop also leads to a better ballance.

GOOD JOB!!!

I agree with cropping it to the right, but i don't like cutting so much of the sky out.

Wow. Excellent if that is a natural shot. Any processing?

I actually like the original better than the crop as the foreground tree, the main tree and the clouds make a diagonal flow through the image.

This is excellent work!

the crop isnt a good option here. Atleast i prefer the first one.

But i dont understand why ppl ask about PP. PP is a part of digital photography to enhance what you cudnt achieve direct from the camera. There isnt anything wrong about it, till its done in a good way, and is not overly done.

No one said there's anything wrong with pp here. Some people like to know because it helps them learn if they know how certain things were achieved.

Deepak, the reason I ask is to learn.
No implication as to whether it's good or bad, but I can say with conviction that most of the hdr's I see are bad! :)

Very unique shot. Can you provide the exif on this? What steps did you take when processing this? Multiple exposures, blending modes? Did you use a filter when taking the shot?

I prefer the first one as well. Only recommendations I have are regarding noise and oversaturation with your oranges. Other than that, an amazing photo. You should be proud. ;]
