    This is wayyyyyyyyyyyyy cool James, the colors of Twilight are always amazing, but you really brought it to life in this fantastic capture, Instant fav for me :)

  • There is another original where it’s not colorized so the sky is blue and the grass is brown. I prefer it this way too.

    I really appreciate all the great compliments. Thanks!
    I’m just not big on replying to each and everyone, as I’m sure it’s known that I appreciate the feedback and reveal in it’s rewards and take great inspiration from it! Since normally I don’t really get that much of it.

    Really beautiful work with color….wonderful scene and composition James……Katey

  • Thanks again Katey! This one does have a “cutout” layer dissolved over-top (of the old tree) as I recall so this one is partly simplified or painting like.
