Hill Tree

This is a simple image I took last winter near my parents home near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was taken in a small local park made so migratory birds had a place to land.
I took the photo near sunset so the grass would have a nice glow and look like it was on fire. Also I liked how the diagonal of the hill played with the diagonal of the snow near the bottom. The only tricky part was making sure I didn't get my shadow in the frame.

I like this shot, but would have preferred it better had it been in landscape mode. Just an opinion.

Thanks for the comments,

Ali I appreciate your critique but I felt portrait was better for this shot. First it isolates the large tree without any others on the side and second it emphasizes the grass more than a landscape would.
That being said I'm sure a landscape shot would look good as well.
