It's an interesting piece for me because I'm a nature person. Flowers, seeds, and berries are the most natural of states. I'm sure everyone has attempted something like this, but have they come out a winner.
Most don't, it's excellent to look at with the colors and structure. I think that side of trees and state of being is hard to capture on photos. The blending and shadowing is great, it really makes the structure as a whole stand out.
It's so brilliant to see nature in it's prime, and to see such expressive colors captured in such lovely true lighting....the way it should be.
