Like your composition and the emotion it portrays. The post processing is effective. The vignette draws you in to the heart of the image. I can feel the dampness!

Arian - I enjoy seeing multiple images as well, and it does help when everyone chimes in on their personal preferences. I agree with the comments - this is great all around - my fav of the group - and the processing is wonderful.

I really like this image. The amount of color and the lighting (including the sunburst) is just right and lends to the enchantment. The downed tree acts like a threshold. Do I want to stay safely on this side or explore the forest beyond?
I like the multiple submissions from time to time. As a viewer, I like seeing your different perspectives on the same area/subject matter. As one who sometimes posts more than one image, I use it as a way to get others' feedback, especially when I push the boundaries of what I'm comfortable with. Of your three, I like this one best; it just seems to draw me in the most.

This is just beautiful - the post-processing you did worked wonderfully - great colour tones and composition!

This is a wonderful shot and I like that you have submitted a recent shot. I find that is the hardest part of the Challenge is to come up with a weekly shot. How wonderful to be in that special place Whistler. I hope in the future you will share some more of these forest photographs.

Sorry again - too many submissions. I am a connoisseur of forests, being heavily involved in the sport of orienteering. We just held the Canadian champs in Whistler and as an organizer I was able to spend ages in this beautiful forest that we loved so much we actually called it "Black Magic". I had hoped to be able to share with you the wonder of this almost untouched west coast forest, but somehow I found it really difficult to capture. To help I removed a lot of color and added a bit of vignetting.
