Chimney Rock

Brief from client 

It took awhile, but I got the second one finished.

Chimney Rock in NC, a similar artistic style to the Table Rock logo that I uploaded previously.

I like the colors here too, though not as much as the other one. But since I have never been there- do the orange parts have significance? It kinda sticks out is why I ask- as well as that one tree that is different and taller than the rest in front of the orange.
Maybe your trees could stick out on the left (above C) like they do on the right (above K) just for unity sake.
Otherwise, looking pretty cool.

There is a specific tree that sits against the rock face, and it is pretty significant to the local landscape.

I had a pink version as well, but I wasn't so sure I liked it as much :/

Nah- I disagree, I don't like the pink as much. But now that I see what it looks like makes sense.

I love your style. The last one you posted like this worked really well, but not so much this time. I think it's the composition that's the problem. From that vantage point the rock looks strange and a bit hard to distinguish what exactly it is.

Perhaps if you used a different photo as a reference, it might work better. Something like this?

But be careful, it seems some pictures could be a little... suggestive. ;)

That's part of the reason I stayed away from that vantage point, plus everyone likes to take that photo from that vantage point at 2300 altitude. It's my favorite as well :/

I hate to be a stubborn butt head on this,

I just love how they look side by side.

Have you ever used adobe kuhler? It has some fantastic color schemes- it's really helpful finding colors/shades/hues. I honestly think nailing down a more cohesive color scheme is all this is lacking. Now that I see the photo- your illustration is pretty spot on. But your colors in Table Rock are awesome. Get this one worked out and you got a great collection started.

Adobe Kuler is what set this color scheme up to begin with :/

Maybe I just need to stay away from green .

lol well- it's a great tool!
There's a lot of rich fall colors in that photo- maybe steer that direction? IDK- just my humble opinion =)
