    Not too many interesting subjects to take pics of in my neighbourhood, so I tried to be a bit creative with the angles and stuff like that, dunno, lol.

    Only #3 is interesting to me; it's the way branches disect the canvas. It could have used smaller aperature, some branches are slightly OOF due to small DOF.

    3 is the best, but it still looks like youre trying to make something out of nothing. not that theres 'nothing' there, but i dont feel like you captured the look you were going for.

    I like #3.
    #2 could have been better if a little more of the foreground/midground was in focus.

    Yep, #2 had potential. Don't really care for the rest.

    #3 is the only one that is close, but i think you should either be closer to the tree or to the water, its a bit boring as is, also the tilt bugs me.

    As others have said, DOF is too shallow on 3 which makes it look like the tree leaves are out of focus.

    Same problem with 2, some of the leaves are in focus and most aren't, but since there's not really a subject (other than the tree) it's distracting to me.

    1 is okay, and 4 is pretty boring. Overall I like 3 the best.
