Hi Lucas,
I love maple trees, it's because of their round shape and the shape of the leaves, these wonderful trees don't grow here in Alaska, but I recently found out that people have purchased them and planted them and they do very well here!
This is a lovely scene , the old maple tree is well shaped and has good structure I like the trunk and how there are actually four trunks growing up together, it's beautiful in its autumn dress! I love that it grows at the edge of the water, and the water showing it's reflection, nice autumn foliage throughout this scene and the large evergreen in back on the right really balances this scene as well as adding another color! Very well created under a beautiful sky , very nice work to show the lighting too! Well presented!

The colors of your maple are very nice Lucas! I like how well you created the light on the leaves and the reflections of the tree trunk and branches. The shadows are also very nice throughout the scene and lovely textures. Very nice work!

This is a wonderful landscape painting . In the small sized canvas you have shown so much details and depth!. The light and shadows, colours and the composition have worked out well. Good effort!

Nice job. The picture is clear and the focus is good too. The lighting is also very good. I think it's perfect the way it is. Nice entry and good luck to you.

Comment from michiganmike

A very nice painting that reminds me it is about time to shoot some fall colors. I know a place where they have maples all along a little stream. It is hard to get reflections as nice as these.

Comment from Regina E.H-Ariel

Sad that I run out of 6* as this again is a very harmonious and as well a kind like dramatic composition - autumn in full splendor where drama of illusionary end of life and beauty of nature transformation are coming together as one
Excellent use of space- your tree is well placed so the water pond of rain fall serves perfectly as mirror for the environment - your landscape is well composed with all what nature offers as trees, bushes, grass land, water, fog and heavy clouds of the season
excellent detail work - you know what you do and you know what kind of brush you need for the effect you wish to create - that becomes very visible I this composition - excellent shadow and light application ringing this painting to life
a wonderful composition with a great visual impact - escudos, well done Lucas
