Because I like to explore images, I lean toward "busy" in my work. At first glance, minimalistic images can have instant appeal. But at second glance, there is not much more to see (IMHO). And landscapes, combined with my busy preference, can teeter on complete confusion. Landscapes by nature are chaotic. The challenge is to isolate part of a scene to bring order and relevance. I believe I took this image to the breaking point. However, I feel there is a sense of order and balance - as if there is a conversation amongst the trees.
