Daily Deviation

An excellent piece of photography.
To start off, the angle of the shot in itself captures a myriad of emotions while showing off many of the scenery highlights. I'm amazed at how you were able to take so much into the shot without making the picture seem "busy" or overwhelming. There's a good deal of artistic balance in the image- and I can really appreciate that.
So far as colors go, the shot leaves little to be desired.
The red and green work beautifully together, creating an especially hard-to-achieve sort of pleasant, earthy contrast.
Said contrast leads to the image feeling both natural, and almost supernatural. The fiery colors are almost too bright to be real- and it truly captures emotion.
Factoring in everything, this is an amazing elegant piece, and it fully deserves it's title as daily deviation. You're a very talented photographer, please continue creating pieces like this.

Such a great photo!
The colors are mesmerizing! The contrast between the green and orange is amazing! The leaves that are scattered across the ground give it a sense of reality, without it being too cluttered. The small pond in the background, with the vibrant tree gives this picture a nice, calming feeling, yet the colors make it seem lively and, well, vibrant!!
The angle is perfect! You balanced the pond in the background with the tree to the left, making your eyes roam around the painting. It isn't just one set piece, like a self portrait. It makes it seem so alive!!!
You are such a great photographer! I hope to see many pictures like these!
