Rural Oregon, a long forgotten cart in the wheat fields, with tree.

Very nice quality to this image, I love how the colors in those tree branches rendered.

I wonder of maybe a lower perspective might have helped because I find myself wanting some more sky in this image.

Great image and subject, but I agree with Tim. I can't help but find myself wishing I could see more of the expanse in the sky over the hill.

Thanks for the comments - you are correct, when I look back at it.

Nevertheless, leadfoot, even without sufficient sky is is a fine picture.

Great shot - the "similarity" between the old wagon with no paint and the bare tree is very good. I'm not bothered by the sky, but instead of finding a way to put more sky in, you might try cropping out the sliver of sky that's there now - wonder how that'd look. Added in Edit: Whoops, I just noticed I didn't have the photo properly aligned on my monitor - there's more sky there than I realized. I dig it just the way it is.

Anyway, great shot - I wish I'd have taken it.
