Final Photo Critique
The color in this photo is really nice. However, I think that it could be edited to bring out the contrast and detail in the leaves. This might have been achieved if the ISO or f stop would have been turned down one stop. I felt like when i looked at it all I could see was the red but the detail was drowned out by the brightness of it. I also wish the whole tree was in the frame so I could see it all. I feel like it would have contrasted nicely with the sky. The greens in the background were a nice addition.
The depth in this photo is excellent. The way the foreground goes all the way into the background and they clouds at the top of the picture add an upper layer of depth that is very appealing. The two forks of the river lead the eye all the way back to the mountains in the background. It feels like this photo just keeps going. The lighting is also very nice making the colors in the foreground contrast with the dark colors of the mountains then the lights of the clouds. The rule of thirds is demonstrated well with this photo as there are three horizontal lines of color.
