With this amazing shot I don't even know where to start from. Let me point the fact the angle is great, even for it to be a "landscape" it does not come up like the average or the expected type of landscape. I like the lighting it's so perfectly suited, I like how the sunlight tender and delicately falls into the tree branches on the right, the road it's also pretty, I wonder if you took this while you were in a car or if you stopped in the middle of the road. The way the two mountains are fading in the back gives a great depth to the picture. Altogether it's a great piece. I like it!

:) You must have a nice camera, to be able to capture the blue sky even while pointing into the sun. The fore- and mid-ground look exceptionally nice - the orange in the trees really makes the leaves stand out. The background seems to have been washed out significantly, but that aside everything is very crisp and in-focus. I think the wider variation in colors makes this piece stand out more than some of your other work [link] . I think the contrast is a big factor in making this look presentable, having the bright leaves over the bluer background makes the tree at the top right stand out all that much more. All things considered, I think I would have cut off the top portion to hide the sun flare. The focus in this piece really seems to be the road, the building and the trees, and having a few more leaves near the top doesn't seem to add that much overall when it's overpowered by the sun.

Cool shot though, nice work :)
