I've been experimenting with putting objects in both the foreground and the background as is common with landscape shots.  I am curious as to how I might have improved on this particular shot.

Thanks,
Brad

Brad,

I think the composition has potential but you don't need that much distance between the foreground and background.  Plus, there's basically empty space between foreground and background elements, so it doesn't add useful information to the image.

You can shorten the distance between the 2 to strengthen the composition.   Crouching down or positioning your tripod lower would have achieved that.  

I created a composite to show what I have in mind:



Less is more in this situation.

Alain,

I don't know how you did that, but the changes you made improves the image quite a bit bringing the foreground and background closer together.  Thanks for the advise, it's much appreciated.

Brad,

You are welcome.  Just to clarify, I cut off the middle part of the photo by selecting the top with a feathered bottom edge and dragging it down overlapping the bottom part.  

The goal was to show you how the image would look with less middle ground.  

As I mentioned you can achieve the same in the field by photographing from a lower position. You would then naturally reduce the size of the middle ground and bring foreground and background closer together visually.
