Flaming Forest
This was taken at a small national park in the Sichuan Province of China in which I purposely over-saturated the fall colors to achieve this "flaming" effect. Interested to hear comments if this is overboard or effective to you all...just having a little fun here. I will be playing around with printing this on canvas at some point.

Richard, I like the effect in the trees, but the saturation in the water seems too much for me, particularly the foreground water which seems to have a magenta cast.

I really like the composition and don't mind the color casts. I agree it will look great on canvas.

I think it's great as-is. It would make a great book cover/jacket.

Thanks guys and being as we are so consumed by certain aspects of what we do when editting, I was concentrating on the trees and other areas and totally neglected to notice the magenta coloring at the bad as that was not my intention...I will need to go back and correct.   I appreciate the comments!

I like it as it is !

I gladly accept the magenta overcast, as it gives a surrealistic (fairy tale) touch in the whole composition ! in fact that little glare like spot ( probably moss ) in the foreground matches with the follieage of the trees perfectly.The motion and the depth of the flowing water which bisects the vegitation is the dominant element that captures your eyes at first glance, and this is what it matters !


We are like a thread in a huge fabric of generations !

I too like it how it is (sans the magenta color cast in the foreground water). I would call it illustration or art more than a photograph, but it is still very appealing.
