I loved it! its a well crafted piece of work as it really catches your eye because it's so colourful and bright - almost like some kind of fantasy world. It instantly caught my attention as soon as I saw it. I also really like that you combined other photos with your own photography as well - really creative. The combination of colours really work for this piece - with the warmer ones being at the centre - making the whole piece stand out. I would really like to see more work like this.
Keep it up! you're really talented - can't even believe this forest actually exists!
The picture presents a very special moment. It's neither night nor daytime there. The forest seems to be inbetween them, embraced with all tones of light which is still partly swallowed by the darkness.This is why one can sense there some kind of a magical atmosphere.
You depict the sky in a wonderful way. It's not only the colours but also the falling snow which looks as if stars were falling on the trees. I believe You could have emphasized these 'falling ash' a little bit more as it's barely visible. Even though, You've managed to achieve a very nice effect. As one looks at the picture, he gets the impression that the sky is a part of the forest, situated nearly on the top of the trees. The sky's 'pieces' are falling down and uniting with earth.
To conclude, this image is something amazingly beautiful. Looking at it is a feast for both, eyes and soul
The lighting was well done , and the vision and talent extraordinary, although I personally would have preferred a darker hue with alot more contrast between the green on the side, and the colors in the middle.
