I like this - the backlighting is nice.

It looks underexposed, and improved when I boosted the contrast in Picasa. Also, I might give it a big crop, basically cut it in half and use only the right side.

I agree with GivingTree on both counts I think it needs a little more work.


You can see some of my shots at my Flickr account.

I rather like it as it is. There is a mysterious quality about it that appeals.

Keywords: Charming, polite, and generally agreeable.

I'm no thistle expert but I think those thistles are teasels.
Either way, the warm, low light through the leaves and around the flower heads is very evocative of balmy summer evenings and I too like the picture just the way it is.
