You are getting carried away here Pat. Rich colours maybe but that scene is made up to attract the eye with all those reds.

Not natural as one does not find such vibrant colours in a forest bed.

Hate to break it to you.

That one is -10 imo.

Ask for your money back.

A great modern American artist was Edward Hopper. Here's two of his best known works.

There was an excellent exhibition of his work at the V&A a few years ago. Hopper original paintings are a bit too much for my wallet; here's my solution: Use Windows Snipping tool to make images for the screensaver - set it to change every 5 mins or so (or whatever interval you like) and you have a private viewing gallery on each of your screens to alleviate the view of your 99 indicators/max drawdown/stop-encroaching spike/missed top or bottom.

Some azaleas really do have very bright colours.
