    Crooked trees

    Hello,
    I would like to request your input on the following image. I have been shooting for about 5 years. I am just getting more involved with the hobby now.
    I happened to take this image, while walking down this road by a local lake. The crooked or leaning trees got my attention. Please share your thoughts regarding the composition and post processing.
    Thanks.

    Hi Hemant, I like very much the composition and color balance. The road actually drive us toward the trees.
    In my opinion it could benefit of a slight crop in the lower - blurred - part, which seems to show also some vignetting.

    Thank you, Giacomo for your input. I purposely added the vignetting, with the purpose of boosting the black levels.

    I myself often have problems with treetrunks, because I don't know where to cut it of.
    Anyway I think this picture would be nicer in panorama mode so that you have more from the bushes on the left en more of the trees itself and less foreground.

    I agree with Giacomo, too much out of focus foreground. Probably the only alternative now would be a square crop.

    Everything else looks good to me.
