good tones. it needs some variety, like an animal or less green and more bridge.

So you are my first official reaction club comment. :)

First impression was, that's pretty! Seems like somewhere I'd like to be and somewhere I certainly would be inclined to take a photograph.

Looking at it further I think it's almost too much to take in and too much green. (Funny I just noticed people said not enough! But I mean area wise, not vibrancy as they did) The bridge seems like something I'd like to see more of, it looks really interesting.

Oh look! it's a fairy land. The troll is probably under the bridge and a lady on a white horse is comeing down the path, just around that corner to see why the giant left that pile of trees there. Magical.

Looking at this I feel exactly as I would if I were really standing there - stop a moment, have a look around, get my bearings and decide in which direction to go: cross the brook here, or go further along the bank to that bridge? The "busyness" is true to life.

I like the busy-ness. creates a sense of mystery, a sense of wanting to know where the river goes.

I like. Composition is almost there. Need to open up aperature or tighten up. Almost too much going on.

I think I would have liked to see a bit more green in this. Good picture though.

this seems a bit desaturated ... wish the colors popped instead of blended together ...

hmmm could do with something of interest in the foreground, as it stands there is too much going on and my eye wanders all over the image.
