I am utterly ecstatic with how this turned out. :love: I haven't been this proud of a manip in quite some time. Yes, it's simple. I still think it packs a bit of a punch. :XD:

Hope you like it :heart:

This is once again a stunning piece of work! You have such an eye for photomanipulation! It's astounding.

I think what I love best about this piece is the mixture of warm and cool colours; very different yet astoundingly complementary. This piece also has a wonderful variety of textures. I can almost feel this forest with it's bumps and ridges. The lighting is also particularly beautiful. I love the focus on the centre of the stream.

I have to say, all in all this is a really great piece! Keep up the wonderful work! I always enjoy seeing what your imagination comes up with!

this is a beautiful piece of work, and of all the art I see on dA daily, this is the first piece I would consider purchasing a print of. The mood is captured perfectly. It is a magical place. I was out walking in the country today, and was looking for a place that felt like it was from another place and time, where the quiet of nature and the elements was in harmony and peace, untouched by the depravity of man. I didn't find the place I was looking for, but on my computer I see a picture of exactly what I was searching for: your picture. As a writer, I search for visual imagery that stimulates my fantasy stories, and this does that for me and more. It's simply beautiful.
