Jeff, I have uploaded a version with less contrast, but it might take hours to refresh, while preserving comments.

Thanks for your helpful criticism.


Jeff Grant

Lannie, that's much better.

Lannie, it's the bright FG grasses that drag my eye here. Any chance of toning them down?

Personally, I like this color version better than the B&W, primarily because of the variety of greens and especially the rich brown limbs weaving through the rich green canopy.  Color is adding much to your photo, IMO.
