Beautiful colors! Kind of has the same feel as an impressionistic painting.

Congrats on the win, Guy. I agree with others who describe this as an impressionist painting or as a watercolor abstract. It's a terrific shot! Kerry

Thanks, Tom. I had pulled over to the side of the road to photograph some trees across the road from where I was parked. It was raining, and after I took a few shots of the trees I had stopped for, I was about to turn my windshield wipers back on, and noticed this image through the glass. I focused the camera on the windshield, and the blurred foliage was captured the way I saw it. All I did in photoshop was to increase the color saturation slightly, and use the cloning tool to remove a small dashboard reflection.
