This is truly excellent! I like it very much. Did you do anything to create the gradually fading aspect of each tree? #550110

Thanks, everyone!
Linda, this started as an image of a single tree taken in early spring. I selected, darkened it and then duplicated it four times. I then put each one on its own layer, made each one smaller and decreased the opacity to make them appear as if they were fading into the distance. I then used the dodge tool to lighten an area to give the impression of the sun shining through. I then created the foreground and background.
