This one's vibrancy really excited me. When I saw the high contrast it gave me a jolt like at a music concert when the performers move from a fairly quiet to suddenly amping it up with percussion and faster-syncopated rhythms. I can hear it right now as I'm writing this.
What's interesting is that before I added the branches it was just some beautiful shapes and colors. The branches combined with the other is what gave me the jolt. Nature came to life at that moment. Definitely awe energy.
