Ghostly Gums

I was drawn to this compostion in the early morning misty light in the Yarra Valley some time ago,  freezing cold. Kind of foreboding but still striking siloette of the dead gums.

    love the composition. Think you might be able to lighten it a tad or increase the contrast to get rid of some of the grey.

  12. Great shot Andrew, i really like this.

    The only thing i’d do is probably take out the second tree but thats only my opinion.

  13. Thanks for your thoughts Merv, always good to hear other photographers opinions, the second tree had crossed my mind but I think that it provides balance and to look further into the image.

  14. I really like this! Id keep that second tree gives the image depth!
