Arne Mayer - thanks so much. I tried your method out. Never really tried this version and when used correctly it could save lots of time, cool...
Regarding your image I think that you have a cool lighting going on. Maybe you could try to use some deep dark saturated reds in your dark shadows to make your colors more vibrant. Maybe you could also try to make more clear if the forest is going down or receding in space...
@incinarated - I think you also could use some complements of green in your shadow other than more contrast like obilex mentioned, overall I think it´s a wonderful image, especially like the sense of scale
@thescala - Looking good, maybe you could try to make your path going through the forest to emphasize this for the brief, thanks for your help also
@dragon4lunch - really nice colors. I think Below made some great points with your composition. Overall great image
@matoohan wonderful style, colors and lighting
@Zilrion - great image, maybe some more work on your lighting would be cool
RichLyons awesome style, love it
no_name_brand - looks great so far, looking forward for some update
Jon Gibbons - looking cool, as it´s centred it looks quite stable and meditative to me
