This is the map for the march challenge colored...

It is a northern highland area in a fantasy setting, inhabitated by bear-shapeshifters.
The basic b/w map was exported in separeted layers, except for the city-symbols all coloring was done using only filters.

I certainly like the colorized better, for my tastes, it makes the trees seem less busy.

That IS nice; I really like the mountains.

Very nice map, but the green is a bit too green for my taste. But still very nice.

I like the spacing of the towns/rivers though I think the trees seem too sporadic and not very meaningfully placed. I'd edit the tone of green also to make it easier on the eye but overall a good map :)

The tree symbols were scattered loosely as I found it too dark using them in a denser distribution. The tone of the grass green only or is the forest also too green?

In my opinion, it isn't that the green is too green (or the blue of the rivers too blue for that matter), but that the map has broad sections of both bright colors and very subdued colors, and they clash. I think the whole map needs to be brightly colored or else all subdued.

Yes that lime green is a bit sickening!

Maybe something else for just the plains/fields on the north side. I actually like the forest, and that's partially because it's not all one color. You turned it into a blend with pockets of lighter or darker against the average, and I really like that. Maybe try for something similar (and with a different shade) for the field to the north? Or add in a texture. :) But I like it as a whole, and I think it's very functional.
