I love the warm glow of the late afternoon sun as it reflects upon the snow capped mountains in the background. It is especially beautiful on the trees and their trunks on the left. The reflected light upon the coat of the moose gives its coat a warm reddish glow. The long shadows tell us it is late afternoon. This is a very pleasing and calming landscape.

You do the coolest digital artworks. The landscape is so enticing. Love the lighting that is directly on the moose. There is such a unique atmosphere with this beautiful scene. Your technique is awesome. What can I say...oh yeah...it's perfect.

This is a stunning image. It is so peaceful and tranquil. Those mountains are amazing with the dark clouds circling around them. The moose in the center is also the perfect touch. You were very creative and I thank you for sharing this with us. :)

I think this is a wonderful piece.
The colors are incredible and the scene looks so very serene.
This is a great match for the poem.

Comment from Daphne Oberon


Lovely setting, colors and subject matter. Somehow the line of white snow on the mountain on the other side of the lake looks to me like it is above the trees instead on under or within them. Part of the issue is it is a whiter white than the snow above. Impressive otherwise, Daphne Oberon

    Thank you for your review, but your rating is rather unjustly harsh for the perceived deficiency you suggest in your review. If you view this image on a high definition monitor (4K perhaps), you should note that the snow is on a precise gradient above the treeline where the grasses begin to fade into granite and the density of trees becomes more sparse as you move to the higher, colder altitudes. You should also consider the angle of view and how the background landscape varies along foothills as it recedes toward the mountains themselves. The densely wooded foothills, which occupy.the mid-ground, tend to mask the trees that rise closer to the mountain's base thus creating the illusion you suggest as being an imperfection of sorts.

Great job, Love the lighting. The landscape elements are well chosen. Is this photomanipulation or did you use a program such as Vue or Bryce? Great job the touches of color and lighting tell the story

This is absolutely stunning.
The sunlight, the detail, the flying birds, the moose, I love everything about this scene.
Really an amazing and outstanding piece of digital work. This is so complex I could view it for hours. So happy I saved this for such an occasion. Really loved this!
