I absolutely love the lower half of the image, not so much the upper half. Perhaps a tighter crop?

Tony Hadley
Lovely location and photo op - not sure if the top half adds value - just my two cents.

Wolfgang Arnold
Tim, Tony, interesting comments, because I chose this crop on purpose: I wanted to underline the grasping 'movement' of the withered piece of wood. Seems, that didn't succeed... So, many thanks for commenting - I've learned something.

Mehmet Akin
good texture and colors...congrats

Ruud Albers
Beautiful work with very nice lighting, Wolfgang!

Wolfgang Arnold
Fred, many thanks - again for an encouraging comment and a good suggestion. I see your point. Unfortunately, this time I cannot easily correct it (too blurry for any sensible retroactive sharpening). When taking the picture, I intentionally chose f4 for blurring background and keeping attention on the sapling - yet, I see that a sharper top would have suited better.
Best regards,

Vladimir Funtak
W. You gave me misty eyes..Very good.

Wolfgang Arnold
The end... ...and the beginning of life.
