Another picture I took near Lake Hashawha. For some reason, I really really love moss. I love how it just grows in some of the strangest places, how soft it is... how green and lush it is. I was hopping across a small stream when I spotted this little "island" of moss on a beautiful white rock.

I increased the contrast and the green and blue colors a bit, while reducing most of the other colors. I like how this picture shows two opposite sides of nature -- the river being one side: always moving, fast, unforgiving, loud.. and the moss being the opposite: slow, gentle, silent and peaceful. The bright red leaf at the bottom left really just makes this picture one of my favorites!

Any suggestions? Are the colors to intense? Not intense enough? Is it cropped enough? What could have made this picture better? Do you think it sucks? I'd love to hear your feedback!

Hi Brian nice shot , like the composition, though it might work better flipped over so it runs the other way from left to right.
The moss is a fraction too green, not unusual in digital image and only needs of a saturation layer mask in the layers pallet and chose green from the drop down menu and destaturate a fraction.
