I thought this might be kind of cool especially because the leaves are turning right about now and winter is just around the corner...Can you tell which one is a photograph and which one is an oil painting?? It is really hard to tell by looking at both of them out of context. Both artists do a wonderful job capturing the colors of the autumn leaves, both make you almost feel a chill in the air because the scene is just so perfect it feels like you're there.
Alrighty.....the photograph is the image to the right, and the image to the left is an oil painting! I love both of these images and I think that both artists did an amazing job capturing autumn in both of these works!
