Wonderful photo - I especially love the unsaturated colours and high contrast which combine to make the scene feel more wind-swept and rugged. Reminiscent of Scotland only with less hills.

despite being pipped for the only moderately disappointing 4th place, I was still glad to see this shot placed here: I aways look for your photos JJ, and was beginning to think you'd packed it in after not entering the last two or three challenges.

This two-thirds foreground is becoming distinctive of your work: this one works particularly well I think - perhaps because the lower two thirds divides itself into a near-ground and mid-ground area, so that there's three levels of detail going on. There's something of the combination of brass and steel - which is an enormously photogenic matching of metals - in the colours you've worked with too: just a muted version of the blue/orange complementries really.

Perhaps a grouping of your photo and mine, with the garnish of a few good friends, would be the thing to most give thanks for.

Bad points: None, but don't like the aspect ratio nearly a square?
Good points: Superb texture and autum colors, most people seem to want to oversaturate everything but this is perfect. Also after 35 very boring images, this is by far the best I have seen. Good luck to you
Overall Score: 10!

This is the kind of shot I wanted to submit, but had neither the landscape or the time. It's very well lit (good time of day) and the subdued colour assists the wistful feeling. Ever so slightly skewed clockwise. [9]

Its a big image and I can only see about two thirds and then have to scroll up or down so its frustrating to look at as It looks a very beautiful image
I like the colours and it looks a cold windy day.
very nice

I love the texture made by the silvery grass blooms! Colors are not very saturated--have you tried this in B/W? It might work well. I love the peaceful, joyous feeling of this photo.

I like this. The colours seem a bit dull, I would have preferred if they were a bit more vivid, but still a nice shot. 8
