Took this one the other day while it was snowing.  I really liked it looking on the camera screen, but the larger I see it the less I like it.  The tree in the foreground feels like it needs more context; I wish I had gotten the ground around the tree.  

I have been trying to take more photos of trees recently after reading an article by Neil Burnell, who has some amazing tree photos.  This photo was an attempt to find order within the chaos of the forest, which I feel I succeed in capturing fairly well, if only the tree in the foreground drew the attention in better.

I too often find it difficult to find order in these forest scenes....you have done well here.

I agree with your assessment but there is a very simple way to fix it. Crop this to a 1:2 ratio by eliminating the bottom third of the photo.

I think you've done well with this one, and I like it a lot!  E.J's suggestion makes a nice alternative view - but I do like your original.
