It is said that many tears were shed as Indians, native to America, were forced to move from their beloved homeland further into the West. Many of them died during the long trip, and later other Indian tribes fought them for invading 'their' lands. They were truly a big part of the 'Wild West'. Thanks to the following for source photos:

Amazing mood, love the colors and the shadows... very pretty scene.

Nice idea with appropriately somber mood. I like how you incorporated both walkers and riders. However, I do feel the left-side tree diminishes the impact by hiding the leading edge of the Indians forced to leave their homelands. (The right-side branch, on the other hand, creates a nice feeling of depth.) I would eliminate the left-side tree and move the sun to the left edge for a stronger walking-into-the-sunset (i.e., the West) implication.
