This is really good. I love how you gave the tree in the foreground more darker and the trees in the the background lighter. It really brings a 3D look to it though it is really 2D. Your shading is amazing and you attention to details is truly astonishing, especially how you made sure to give the background as much attention as you did the foreground. A great composition, truly a masterpiece.
Thank you very much! I'm glad you appreciate it so much I would say the best way to get things done nicely is to find a reference picture. Not that you should copy it, but in order to observe and understand the movement of things - in this case of the branches - and of textures, light, the depth... it's very useful to have a real image or scenery.
