Thanks for submitting your assignment!
You’ve chosen to shoot a landscape photograph with a straggly old dead tree as the most prominent element in the frame.
I like what you’ve chose to do here and you’ve got most of the elements in line to make for a nice photo.
In fact it’s a decent photo now.
Some things you could have done to improve this image are as follows:
Time of Day
For an image like this (or really any image) if you want the colors to really pop you should should shoot around magic hour. On a cloudy day like this at this time of day the colors are quite muted although the light is diffuse.
1: The dynamic range of this image is such that the tree (and the ground) are so dark that the sky is a little blown out. Shooting at a different time of day may have produced a more even dynamic range.
2: I like that you’ve tried to incorporate foreground, midground, and background elements but be careful they don’t overlap too much.
3: If you want to isolate and focus on the tree getting lower down would help as well.
Overall you’ve done a pretty good job on this one. Although there is always room for improvement.
