Japanese Maple by *coulombic
There is something to be said for this shot, it has such a uniqueness about it that really draws me in, certainly something I can't stop looking at! An incredible array of color combined with wonderful composition (
I seriously cannot get over this piece. As soon as I saw it at the bottom of the page in the DD section, I just HAD to see it bigger and closer. The image is so clear and vibrant that it feels as if I'm looking into a portal and not a photograph. It literally feels so alive and again, the colours.. just magnificent.
It is such a great and complete image, there's a lot of red but it doesn't overlap the entire image as there is green as well with some yellow and orange. The sun is such a great bonus to the image as it seems as if that is the source that is giving these beautiful trees and plants their colour.
This is one of those great artworks that the viewer tends to see more the longer they stare at it. At first glance I saw red, then the sun but then the details start jumping out, for instance the way the tree curves and how it looks like veins among the redness of the gathered leaves.
I congratulate you on your DD for it is very well deserved. It's not everyday that truly beautiful works as these get featured or popular so it was quite refreshing to see.
Even in a photograph you have captured how alive nature is. I applaud you for that and truly amazing work!
