Richard: All in all this is a very successful photograph, well done! Have you tried a slow shutter speed (1/4 or 1/8 of a second on a cloudy day, early in the morning or late in the day? Try spinning the camera at 180 degrees at slow shutter speeds...you'll get interesting blurry circular images.

I love the zoom effect in this nature photograph. The composition is interesting and a little mysterious.

Composition
& perspective
I love the perspective because it sucks you into the background, which is pretty much in the center of the image. Maybe if it was off-centered a little more it would more successful.

Use of camera,
exposure
& speed
The slow shutter speed makes this zoom image successful because it brings your eye in the the background space! The lighting is also effective. It's great that both sides have a beam of natural light which guides your eye to the background as well.

Color &
Lighting
The color is very nice, love the earthy tones of green & orange/brown. You picked a good time of day and you're lucky that it was sunny day to get this wonderful effect.

Description
I have been working on long exposure and zoom in/out shots for a week. I like the effect. Trying to convey a ghostly feel to my shots in the woods.

How to improve your photo
1.
You could add a little more detail in the dark trees on the left side.
2.
Having an person or animal in the background where there's a space between the trees could make this even more interesting.
3.
Try cropping both sides of the images for more impact.
