Epic! Awesome stuff. I LOVE the tiny bright yellow specks of the floers.

Excellent mood and compostion. The desaturated colours work great in this.

My favorite picture of all. I love the colors of the house in contrast with the grey sky and the muted colors of the grass and flowers. I hope it wins a ribbon.

It certainly has drama, and is certainly a nod to previous successful (let's say nordic) images that have cropped up here before. No doubt this will do well, and for it's own merits. Composition is nice (though would be tempted to see what it would be like a bit closer in without the rock wall on the right) but it does feel that there is a bit much going on (should i look at the building, or the yellow flowers, or both absorbing the scene; answered my own question there). The sky is very lovely and dramatic, and the grass a very nice windswept appearance which does draw your eyes up to the building. Building looks a bit flat and over sharpened, but the vignetting is tastefully done and it's still a very stylish shot.


My First Weighted Scoring System ; composition + technical 2/3, challenge 1/1, post processing results 1.5/2, ooooh factor 1.5/3, originality 0.50/1 = 6.5 rounded to 7
