    East London sunset

    The title says it all.

    I am lucky to live on the south side of Epping Forest. The area near me (as in within in 50m) is a large open space that is used for football at the weekends, but has some great spaces to walk in.

    I like the shot Dave. The trees make a nice silouette and I like the way the sun rays filter through on the ground.

    Cheers Dave

    Personally speaking, Dave, I would try a closer crop.

    For me, there isn't anything of any real interest on the right side. Just distant trees and an uninteresting sky, so I would crop to where the sky starts to look better, where the clouds appear. And then crop a little from the left side to correct the overall scene balance.

    I think this would give more impact to the main group of trees.

    I agree with Geoff's Crop suggestion. Also you might want to do a gradient pulled down from the top and up from the bottom to darken the sky above the trees and the grass.
    Very nice picture. Keep sharing and shooting

    Thanks for the comments all.

    I kept the largely uncropped view as I liked the curve made by the tops of the trees from the left, over the top of the main group and down to those on the left, but I have also tried your suggestion, Geoff.

    Again any view will be welcomed.

    Admittedly, you do lose a bit of 'depth' by cropping tighter, Dave, but your alternative crop has a lot more 'wow' factor.
