That is beautiful!  The only thing I think could be improved is that the diagonal line of the shore is too straight and perfect.  I looked up the reference photo and, yes, it is pretty straight in the photo.  Not perfectly straight, but actually pretty straight.  I, personally, would have messed it up a little to make it not so straight.  The colors are wonderful and I love that crooked tree on the right.  It is a beautiful picture.  :)

Hi Humburger,
Thanks so much for your kind comments and great observation. you are so right about the line of shore. I don't like it too. I am so glad that you also see  that perfect straight line as something to improve. and I am happy that you are caring enough to look up the reference photo. I appreciate that a lot.
Thanks again dear, I wish you happy weekend.

This looks like a good tutorial that you did a great job on.  I like the line segmentation of the branches.  Obviously the trunks of the tree, the background trees and reflections and the colors are nice.  Oil Pastels are a difficult medium for me.  I will make a note to try this tutorial at some time in the future.

Thank you Tony for kind comments. two big trees are big challenge for me. I love the distant trees with their reflections.
