    Welcome J, nice shot - interesting angle plus the twist in the trunk adds to the appeal. Was there a graduated filter effect applied, maybe to knock the sky in the background down a bit?

    There is a white pipe or something similar behind the tree which is quite distracting. Also, it seems to be a bit oversaturated in color. The darkened layer effect in the top part of the frame is a bit too abrupt. Either feather the layer, or use a softer GND.

    I think that, taking on board what Robert and Chris have mentioned, a little bit of careful tweaking can still produce a good image from this shot.

    Hello from me too.

    First up - So that you don't continue to get people asking you what your proper name is, because most us use that on here, you can go to Edit Profile and enter your proper name under 'Real Name'. Then it will appear underneath your Username in all your posts. You can also enter your location so that it does the same, just as in my details alongside this message. Then we all know where everyone is in the world.

    As to your image. I note what the others have said and all of that can be addressed through your learning and development.

    What is more difficult to learn is that which you have already demonstrated - a flair for seeking out a composition that will make an image, rather than 'just' another snapshot. Of course, we can refine that skill/ability and train ourselves to develop an even keener eye for a picture. But what you shown here is that you're already several steps along the learning curve in terms of developing creative vision.
