Not too bad, actually. The first shot had some symmetry, but I decided that a tree with multiple dead branches shown on the right in the second shot could be important to an interesting overall composition. However, it bothered me that the second shot had cut off a small deciduous tree on the far right.
I decided to return on the next sunny morning to see if I could improve on these. Not so easy. Here is the only shot that seemed to work, sort of.
This time I caught the dead tree as well as all of the small deciduous sapling that was cut off in the prior shot. Looks pretty cluttered, though.
What struck me, however, was that the background was quite dark, and I decided to turn this shot into a high-contrast B&W.
Better, I think. Now the focus is on the contrast between the the trees that were lit by the morning sun and the dark of the woods behind. So I decided to go back to the prior two shots and see how they worked as B&Ws.
