Wow! What an awesome picture. First, I love the atmosphere of the picture. Everything has an extra colorfulness to it. And the bike there adds an extra touch to it! The way the tree branches fade into a darker color makes it pretty. Everything falls into a peaceful, autumn area and its so nice I wish I was there myself! The grass gives it other color too, so it's not just bright red, and overpowering, ya know? The side fades to black, giving an end to the scene instead of a cliffhanger, like "Wheres the REST of it?"....well, great pic,
Originality: I gave two and a half stars because a bike and a tree isn't that original
Technique: Fantastic! The detail and color is very catching. You gave it the look like it was painted, when it was photographed. In my opinion, that is extremely hard to do. The reason I gave the half star is because the handle bar looked like it wasn't in the right place.
Impact: It makes me feel good emotions, but doesn't blow my mind.
Overall: I would say GREAT JOB!
How were you able to give it the look, like it was painted?
