I like it Kris. Nicely put together. It's almost two individual images with both vying for attention.

Best regards

Thanks Gary. I was going for tree being an echo or shadow of the cow parsley, but I don't think I got the composition quite right.

Hi womble ,I like the relationship between the two (similarity) and the exposure and focus on the cow parsley is spot on to my eyes. I still like it and maybe a revisit could possibly bring even greater reward. Well spotted. Maybe a pair of scissors might come in handy for perfect composition.

Whatever the foreground plant is, I agree, it infringes into the tree and a side step to the left would have fixed this but hey ho, hindsight is a wonderful thing!

For me, there isn't a lot in the frame but what there is, it implies a cold and stark landscape so it works well

This is where the aforementioned scissors would have come into play. A side-step to the left and there were more of the little ... wotsits. As it is I have cropped a bit off the left side of the image. Note to self... always pack secateurs. I already feel like a pack-animal when I go out photo-snapping!

A boot I was not throwing,alfpics but I can see it could be interpreted as such. I was trying to suggest to remove a few of the the stray cow parsley strands to achieve a minimalist composition.

We can all do with better composition from time to time, but that's what going back to the scene is for - to follow up on a great idea!
