The inner workings of aspen bark is pretty intriguing, so I had to try. All comments, edits appreciated.

Minnie, I can't be more specific than to say the image looks flat to me. Don't know what to suggest. Matt

I agree, and will continue to dabble in possible solutions.

The center curl seems to not be in focus, which is a negative for me. I think the subject would be more appealing crisper throughout (thinking of the properties of the bark).

You're probably right. Thanks for looking.

Step to the right about a foot and a half then turn left forty-five degrees and aim at that large peel.

The 'problem' with an image like this is that's it's all the same, sort of like taking an image of a grey board, where you need more contrast, the kind you see on the right side of the image where the bark is peeling. Some bark works straight on, but I would suggest a forty-five here to really bring the story to life.

I hope this helps! S-
