Whoa, Rona, it's green all over! Great composition on this shot! The clarity, color and POV are awesome!

Hi Kathy,
Good to hear from you! This large wetlands area is one of my favorite shooting locations. Usually I'm down closer to the water but woods in spring can't be beat! #8579469

Rona, nice job finding artistic interest in an ordinary forest subject. Great leading lines and I like the oversaturated look for this to make it artistically more interesting. Good eye and nice job. TED #8597398
