o O it looks textured...gotta love that. Reminds me somewhat of the outskirts of a Louisiana Biyou...

The greens are wonderful but leave the distance lacking. This throws things off-balanced somewhat. In this case, a bit heavy to the viewer's right...perhaps some increase on values in the background will level it? Particularly on the viewer's left where it's quite undefined in comparision to the rest.

Hi Tamana,
Thanks for the comment.
The photo I took of them was in New Iberia Louisiana. I had this one critiqued in the Photograph Plein air thread. They said the background needed adjusting also. I wish I had not used spray varnish on it. I am supposing because of that I can't paint over it.
