Wow, dazzling color! The temperature changes through the shadow and light playing across those leafy plants is really nice.

don't be afraid to blend certain areas together.

you can render the focal area and you can let the rest of the image's shapes 'stick' to each other. Like, if there's a bush with 100 leafs and three color temperatures, you can just suggest the mass of it and the color shift without having to pull out each leaf...

does that make sense?

it does! can't wait to get back out there and practice what you suggested. thank ya kindly.
