In my humble opinion, this should have been The Blue Ribbon.

Looks like a delightful scene and the lines of the furrows leading to the village church are very nice. I would have preferred a more traditional crop given the 800 pixel restriction. Not crazy about the grain but it's not bad. Voted earlier; back to comment.

Looks like an awesome sketch with a pencil. Very nice

I'm so torn on this one. Part of me really doesn't like the heavy processing. But then it grows on you quite a bit. But then it's so heavily processed...

So I've come to the conclusion that I love the processing on the church itself and in the fields. And the cloud in the upper left is quite nice. But the clouds in the middle are a bit heavy handed, because they become the focal point of an absolutely gorgeous piece of work.

This is not something that I would have thought I'd consider art -- the landscapes aren't really calling to me. But I'm really liking this. -8-

puffy cloying clouds floating slowly towards the left and the central leading lines rushing to catch them make this is a very lovely image

DMC. Lovely. The gritty PP, lead in lines, dramatic sky thanks B&W, the ROT put this in the Art Class. What is I believe lost on a lot of DPC voters especially in this challenge will be the lack of forethought as to the meaning of Art; eg: The lengthy process some painters had to go through to be able to paint like this, never mind as a photographer to re-create this particular effect. Bumped to 8.

Great clouds and the lines leading to the church draw the eye and add depth.
