If there was something on the log at that point - a squirrel or a bird, it might help, but as it is there's nothing to be seen at that point.
It's interesting...the shot has a different effect on me.
When I look at it there is
something at the point you're refering to.
The branch creates the illusion of a bird sitting there.
I guess that illusion doesn't work for everyone but that's how I feel about it.
