Purchase a print of this photograph

The sun's brilliant light spills through this grove of autumnal cypress trees in Arkansas.

Edit - the image has been slightly cropped per Curly and Ann's suggestion.

Interested in purchasing prints of my photographs?

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Lovely strong verticals Jason, but I'd be tempted to crop away that small portion of sky at the top - it just looks stronger to me without the distracting highlight up there.

@Curly: Thanks Curly. I had the same thought as you and tried it both ways. While I do think it's a stronger composition with the crop, I also felt it de-emphasized the height of the trees. In the end, I decided to stick with this one. Perhaps I'll revisit that decision tonight.

Great warm tones, and I agree with Curly about cropping away the top

@~~~Ann~~~: Thank you - I agree and have indeed slightly cropped the image now.
