    I like the mood of this image. Some might urge you to lift the shadow areas a bit, and I hope you decline.

    Thanks Mike. It took me a few shots to get the effect I was looking for between correct exposure and silhouette. Glad to see someone else enjoys my vision.

    I was going to disagree with this but then I opened it up to full size and see that my initial thought was wrong. It is very good as is.

    A nit-pick question on composition in general: Would a step to the right or left to either bring the trunk of the tree fully up against the house or clearly away have been an improvement?

    It might have been, but then I wouldn't have the sun in the open spot in the branches of the tree where I wanted it. The tree is almost touching the corner of the house so I'm not sure if a step to the left would have given any more separation but a step to the right would have connected it. Although that would have put the sun behind the branches and not in the opening.

    Great shot, Rob. Didace's comment on the tree placement was certainly well-sighted, but just that sliver of separation you achieved did the job. One of those tiny compromises we have to make, and I think you pulled it off perfectly.

    Thanks Kevin. It was a delicate Ballance of lighting and composition. Glad to see the majority like it.
