Who's mamma do I have to insult to get criticised around here :P

Seriuosly though, I would really appreciated any critisim :) I know I have a long way to go before I take the perfect picture. I tried to capture the deep red in the tree, but for some reason the picture just feels bland.

my mamma said its bland too :D That is not all my mamma says, she also says its not a flower or macro.

maybe frame it differently, use the rule of thirds and put a point of interest in front or behind. Is there a nice background that you can incorporate into the pic? try stepping back and get down low, nice morning or evening sunshine?

Do you get sunshine in Newfoundland in November?:wink:
What sort of tree is it?

Thanks for the reply maxjj. It isn't actually a tree, its a shrub(or so my mom tells me).As for the type? who knows... haha. It is taken in her back yard & there is a barn behind it. You can see the white fence that keeps the horses inside in the background. We do get sun in november, but usually inbetween the hurricanes and rain :P

I will wake up eary on the next nice day we get and see if I can play around with the sunshine and change the shot around again. Thanks for the pointers!
