On revisiting this image I was struck by the tree looking at its peak blossom (very close to an atomic bomb, thanks to deftly pp!). The image has therefore an ominous feel seeming to be taken just a minute before an imminent event that would destroy this serenity forever. 8

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: Really lovely shot with very brave bold toning - I like that. The clarity of the top of the tree works really well when placed against the misty backdrop. The painter below the canopy transform the image from a fairly vanilla landscape into something almost cinematic. I want to know what those structures are on the other side of the tree.... to leave this ambiguous ads to the image. I'd have cloned them out - you were right to keep then in.

Critical stuff: The bush to the right - I use my hand to crop the image just to the left and the whole image seems more polished to me.

Overall: Very nicely made.

Very pleasing; sepia works extremely well to give it a timeless feeling

What a great find of capturing a landscape photo of a painter painting a landscape. Love the composition. It shows the painter near enough to the tree that I can assume she had chosen the spot for shade but has been there for a long time that the shade has moved; the passage of time is demonstrative in the photograph. Now I do have a critique: the sephia tones I feel just don't complement the composition. The yellow/gold tones are more dull than warm. I think B&W might have been a better choice for then the play of light and shadow upon the tree and folliage/bushes would have been more visually present. And I also think that the mountain range would not blend into the sky and get lost in the composition.

FABULOUS! Only nit pick is the brightest part is the forground bushes. I'd have darkened the far right bush at least. LOVELY job! (not voting)
