    Very moody. Black and white is a good choice for this. Beautiful detail in the tree stump and lovely light in the sky.
    Suggestions:
    Fog is a player in this image but not the star. I hope you took many images of this scene. It would be interesting to see how it would look without the table (i.e. move to the right so the stump screens it?

    Strengths:
    Strong composition, enjoyed seeing this image on the big screen at the last meeting. The low clouids/fog is hiding some of the background scene.
    Suggestions:
    Strong photo although match for this theme?

    Strengths:
    Interesting sense of scale between the stump and the picnic table; The monochromatic treatment creates a somber mood; good range of tones.
    Suggestions:
    The image is a bit heavily weighted to the right. Experiment with a square, or nearly square crop; losing some of the "empty space" on the left.

    Strengths:
    There is both a clarity and a softness to this image. Nice balance of the two. Intriguing subject matter and a composition that tells a story of abandonment (In my opinion, anyway). Well done.
    Suggestions:
    Possibly a touch more brightness to the image overall. But perhaps not. The darkness of it does indeed work. ~Barb
