The harmonies of colours work very well. The warm yellow trees look splendid against the blue and purple background.

Terrific Rob. Great composition--I think the repetition of sky, trunk, sky, sky,... is very important to this piece. It also is structured so that the bottom, middle, and top thirds are all interesting and dynamic.
