I really long the strong, saturation of color value to bring out the clashing elements. Some people might have decided against that for different reasons, but it solidifies the the focal points into the foreground and allows the background to blend it more naturally that way. Good job.
Thanks for commenting! Composition and using contrasting colors to reinforce it is definitely something for me to keep practicing - I find it a challenge every time. It's fun to experiment with it though
Great how you painted the strong colors in the reflection of light unto the green tree...I like that face in the tree as well...I am not sure but the right part looks a bit like some dragon or monster face? At least so far my imagination goes
