The tree is perfectly framing the subject vehicle, and we have a frame within a frame. From the tree back to the mountains is a nice transition. The area in the foreground to the tree is slightly out of focus, I think either changing the depth of field or maybe some sharpening would help. Nice timing on the placing of the vehicle.   Posted: 03/15/2023 10:21:13

Perfectly done image of this great location. Perfect time of day, as the shade from the trees in only under the trees, as is perfect timing to have the vehicle under the trees. The mountains in the background shown through the arch is also good and shows that you selected a good location to take the photo from. Nit picking, but if you could lighten the vehicle some to show more detail it would help.   Posted: 03/15/2023 13:43:56

Interesting framing, Gaetan. Subject and background sufficiently in focus, foreground a bit soft. Nice fully saturated bright colors. I have taken the liberty of attaching a tighter perspective, just for conversation.

I like this, it focuses more on the tree arch.   Posted: 03/22/2023 08:59:06

Very good idea t0 use two big trees formed a hole as picture frame. I am not sure the car under the shade or outside under the sunlight better. I would try to move car out as shown on my copy. Personally, I prefer the car sitting outside of the shade.   Posted: 03/22/2023 13:35:08

My first thought was the car is on the wrong side of the road. Then I noticed the lovely arch. Your photo tells the whole story. I am not sure if cropping from the bottom or left side would improve it. I would darken or burn the clouds. They distract.   Posted: 03/23/2023 18:07:54
