This is very dramatic. I love it! It has a desolate look to it, but the beautiful colors on the ground give it punch and pop. This would make a really nice framed print on a man's office wall -- or a masculine living room. Beautiful job!

Great mood-enhancing grain. Composition has strong horizontal and vertical forms. Good work.

Interesting picture. very desolate. The grain just seems to mask and gray it out. I don't see it adding to it.

This is good, but the tree gets my vote.
