A long exposure and great deal of intentional camera movement to bring the firey color of the field of paintbrush up over the tree trunks to produce a feeling of flames. Cropped for final effect. I'm interested to find out if this works for anyone.

Thanks so much Sanjay, Tammy, and Debra. I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me. I know this type of image is very subjective so I wasn't sure how it would be received. Thanks again!

...i thought "orange tulip impressionism" before I read the description.
Interesting to know that you did this with the field of paintbrush.
I love the presentation.
...love the color and abstract impression...

OH YEA this certianly works for me. I love the color of course, but your use of long exposure to get the firey look is super here.

Works for me, Cora. Love the blend of colors and it does look like flames. Obviously, very well thought out and executed. Good going!

This works for me as well! Great job. I couldn't put it any better than Brenda when she said "very well thought out and executed."
