This is a very well done piece of art! The trees and snows are amazing! The water is awesome with the reflection from the tree but the water fall looks just a little bit off. I mean that it seems like there are to many straight lines which kinda form a pattern. The deer is awesome but it doesn't seem to fit right in. Maybe its the shadows or you could add hoof marks in the snow. The background where you kind of fade it to brown i think should be a a bit lighter or with some more green on the top. Overall Absolutely amazing but the deer could be done just a little bit better. I am amazed at your talent and i wish i could do something like this.
What do you think?

A deer!!! How exciting!! A quiet moment with one of nature's majestic creatures in a still winter forest. Standing on the opposite shore, I can hear the rushing waters of the river and the crisp sounds of the chilled morning. The exhilaration of meeting a regal deer in this frozen instant greets me across the canvas. Bravo!! I'm really proud of you, and I think you have brushed a beautiful rendition of nature's finest once again. Cheers!

Naw! Can't grow Orchids there. Where in New England can you grow tomatoes outside in January? I truly believe that I have enough to play with here!

The texture you accomplished with the left side ground is just remarkable- well, it's all wonderful- but there's just something really special about that left side. lol I'm weird.

Nice, but... I want you to zoom me in a lot closer! I want to see the mud on the banks where the thawing snow is dripping into the river. What's really happening in that ice cold water?

Very nice work! The deer appears elongated and out of scale to its surroundings. Just an observation.:)
