Beautiful colors with a nice road leading one into the forest.

I find the stunning, transilluminated foliage more interesting than the extremely bright featureless surface of the road. I like the warm color on the road in the lower portion of the photo. Len

I agree the bright yellow of the road draws the viewer in, but then it is just too much, too an obvious fake. Much better work is the foilage in the upper part. It grabbed my attention. Long time I did not understand why. Something was mysterious about it. But it looked believable at the same time. It took me so long to realize that all the branches whether featuring green leaves or yellow-orange leaves are "dense". There are no gaps between leaves and twiggs opening the view to another layer of wood behind. I think you painted in branches with leaves from original shots where these branches were the outskirts of the wood. There the foilage is indeed dense. And even were you look through gaps you don't see anything because everything behind is so much darker. But you did the painting so carefully, almost twig by twig, that the manipulations do not leap to the eye - as opposed to the screaming yellow of the road in the midground.

Actually PPS, there is no painting or anything like that. I did use the ORTON effect which softens and uses some blur and then cut it back on its layer. That process also modifies the colors a bit. I know it is strong in color but that was my mood the day I processed it. It really was a glorious day. Thanks for taking the time to critique.

Thanks for clarifying. I am impressed. What a foilage created using ORTON!
