Image source used in the making of this landscape. Made changes...thanks for suggestions. (5 years and 1115 days ago)

Beautiful color scheme, but the composition really needs some work...
The tree trunk looks nice, but everything else is quite blurry looking, especially the tree leaves. The odd horizontal lines in the lower third are confusing and distracting (but not enough to overcome the blurriness), and the white road visually cuts your image into two pieces.

author says:

Thank you MossyB, I think it is the smudge work that makes the image blurry. Any suggestions to make it sharper.. Not much time to make changes.....

You can try smart sharpen on the foliage layer, but it will leave "halo" artifacts...
In general, avoid the smudge tool.

I'd paint out that horizontal road and the lines beneath it, and if you must have a road, make one that curves from the tree up to the right over the "mountain."

I know it is a probably too late but adding grain can help give a sharper look to smudged images . A good way to do that is to add a new 50% neutral gray layer (fill empty layer with gray) and the run the grain filter on it. Once you have the layer done you can set it on Soft light blend mode and then set the opacity on whatever looks best. For sharpening you can duplicate your finished image, apply the High Pass filter to it at about 2-5 % (depending on the image resolution). Then set the layer on Soft Light or Hard Light. Set opacity at what you want. There is more but out space

Nice concept ... just a quick add on to my suggestion. You can "paint" out some of the High pass layer if you find it is sharpening something too much. Just turn the layer back to Normal and the using a 50% gray brush set on 50-75% opacity to paint out the over sharp (usually white) lines.

Composition is a hard one ... I know what Mossy means but you have framed the image nicely. I think the biggest problem there is the mountain in the very center and the white line. Other that that it is a great "painting". Definitely heading in the right direction!

author says:

Thank you Arca, let's see what I can do. Not much time left, will be a busy day today for me, but I appreciate your suggestions, it will help in future entries.
