I took this at a friend's wedding this weekend over on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. The light was incredible...the sort that makes you wish you could just stay there forever...hence the title :)

Nice light - I like how some of the leaves just glow!

A non inspiring bland all too common object I think, compared to the rest in this challenge.

While it's certainly dappled light, it doesn't really have a focal point - something to attract the eye.

Shots like these are hard to do. With no real subject, it's tough to give the viewer something to focus on. I think you were going for the dappled light as a "texture" but if you could have isolated a specific leaf you might have had a better shot.

Nice color, just kind of chaotic there is no real focal point

Picture looks a bit blury and flat. Higher f number and more saturation would make the leaves stand out. You could also find a nice branch and focus on it. Now there is no main subject in the picture.
