Well, if I was to choose a location to take a photo with my boyfriend, I would choose this I love the colours:: you manage to paint them all in full but still have a whole impression for colours in the picture - hard to express in English - sorry... what I mean is, if you look at the single detail, they all have their own characteristic colour. But the impression of the picture as a whole is not: oh, a mixture of heaps of colours - but a wholistic impression - you somehow managed to integrate all the variety of colours and detail into a wholistic impression... (was that understandable?)
I'm having a hard time grasping how the lighting is working since both the left and right sides are in full shadow. Everything else is really good though. The trees fading out gradually as you go back + the color of the sky gives the whole image a foggy appearance. The red tree tops this picture off. It looks absolutely brilliant in this scene. The rest of the picture is only slightly dwarfed by it's magnificence but I think that was a necessary sacrifice. Good job overall, just think about the lighting on the edges.
okay, the most stand out thing is the colour of the leaves you used in my opinion. It stands out, the lighting is BEAUTIFUL. Maybe I would fix 1 thing though: at the left side of the artwork, it seems a bit gloomy while the rest is really bright.
