Autumn Sunlight - original oil painting

This painting is a contest piece for the first monthly competition at How to draw and paint painters' community.
The contest was about recreating and interpreting a woodland scene from a given photo in any drawing or paint medium.
autumn forest scene near a river
I began the painting in the last moment before the submissions deadline, so I painted the first layers in acrylics and the finishing touches in oil paint. I used an 18 x 14 inch. (45 cm x 35 cm) stretched canvas prepared previously with 3 layers of universal gesso.
There were 62 entries and I took the second prize with this forest scene painting, as a result of members' voting.
I am quite happy with the outcome.
Please have your say in the comment box!
