Took this frame while travelling. Want honest critics/reviews. How could I have improved the composition?

Amey, the clouds do look wonderful indeed.
What I would have done for the composition was include a anchor point, which I think would have been the tree silhouette. And I would have excluded the other trees or may be make a base using them.
The placement would have been off centre with the could forming as a larger background.

By any chance did you shoot this at high ISO and did a Noise Reduction?

Thanks for comments, Gautam!

Will think in that way during capturing further frames.

And no, I did not do any noise reduction on it. Default reduction from lightroom maybe applied. I shot it on 200 ISO

nice colours...


what could be better - there isnt any real composition there in this photograph - a foreground element, subject etc always makes the composition stronger compared to a pic of just the sky.

I would have attempted this vertically and used the taller of the tree as my base element and devoted the rest of the frame to the ball on fire.
