A smart one ! The colors are beautiful, and it's perfectly framed : the middle part seems to be almost the negative of the others. The little branch burnt by the sun is awesome. Excellent !

franz from Baden, Austria

excellent, with the brilliant colours and the smooth reflections. what i like best is the tree that divides the image diagonally, so that there's actually two pictures, one on top and one at the bottom that are great to look at in their own right !!!

Tomix from landerneau, France

Gorgeous photo! 5*!

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Gosh that's a hot one, this divides into two totally separate pictures with differing qualities. Unfortunately because of the size I have to download the image to view it as a "whole" and it looks quite happy as two pieces put together :-)

Mooie from Vancouver, Canada

awesome! My screen is small and lame so I see the top first, which is AMAZING... and then I have to scroll down for the rest of it, but in this case it's actually a bonus that my screen is lame because the bottom is like finding that hidden song on your fav CD. Kind of magical. :-)
