For me, the color allows my brain to sort out the various trees and bushes more easily. You mentioned primeval in your other response. This does have a feel of wilderness where few, if any, humans have seen. I like the contrast between lush and cool drawing us further into the scene via the little stream against the rougher side of nature with the downed tree. There is a feeling of comfort and peace, along with a little unease as to what wild creatures might be lurking :)

Oh, I like this version a lot. The soft rich greens of late summer, the clear water, the tree that has succumbed to the recycling demands of nature - all convey a peaceful, pleasant scene. If you wanted to do more with processing, you have plenty to work with.

I might crop some from the top, since the bright sky seems fairly featureless, and its brightness draws my eye from the interesting details of the middle of the frame.

I'll agree with cropping down...maybe to the bottom of the left bit of sky,,,,..

I like this one better than the first but am still having a hard time finding a subject to focus on. S-

I agree with Steve, Martha; I prefer the softness of this image but can't focus. Matt
