    Nice colours, Benjy. The red against the green background is a good contrast.

    The branch running down the right side of the frame bothers me a bit. It competes with the berries for my attention. I don't think cropping it out would work as then the twig bearing the fruit would simply be haning in space. Would it possible to take the shot from a slightly different angle? Perhaps more "front on" ie poiting at the berries from the left side of the current photo. Then the limb they are hanging would blur recede and blur into the background. Although, then you would lose the spider web: is that important to the composition? Just a thought.

    My two thoughts also. But of course, Bernard and other may disagree.

    I wondered if a crop to a 16:9 ratio would work? I feel it is one that is well worth looking at in different ways to see how it could be shown to best advantage, because with the web, the berries, the colours, there is a really good image in there.

    Hope you don't mind, Bernard, but the best way of describing my idea is to show it. Don't know if this contributes to making it a better image?

    Fantastic colors Bernard.

    What bothers me at first sight was the orange out of focus things near the bottom but Donald's crop fixed it.
