Oooh, very enjoyable abstract. I love green and you have a very nice hue here. The abstract flows well with the heavier (larger) band on the left being balances by more smaller bands. Overall I get a sense of fantasy. The wood is real, yet offers the hope of the fantastic. Fairies, magic, etc.

Having looked at this for a bit I think people suspected a PS filter because you seem to have 2 layers here, the sharp background one then the more blurred foreground one.

This image reminds me a lot of your other similar shot "Autumn Impressions", which when I came to your profile was the first one that jumped out at me, but when I went to comment on that I discovered I already had :)

This is another great example of that style of shot, what I particularly like about this one is the solid grey trees amidst all that rushing green!

The white tree on the right distracts me and I'd crop it out. Very nicely done, however. I always try these shots with much less success.

Sometimes folk think "filter" and other times they recognise the technique (and possibly p*ss all over it anyway, lol). Weird, since this one did very well considering:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1032/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_795121.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1032/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_795121.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Lovely - I owe you a higher score. =) Will a fav make up for my doubt?

I love this... The longer you look at it, the more you see.. Plus, if you look long enough, it begins to move... 10 for me.. I know many will miss it, but worry not... It's appreciated !!!!

Unusual and very nice. I like your style and the way you executed this. One to frame and hang.

cool processing! I always wanted to know how you do that.

Hmm - this is an interesting "painted" look. I like it. I'd be more apt to give a higher score if I knew it was done in-camera and not just a blur filter. I'll go 7.
