a little too secret. 2

Just seems like a picture in a park. Nothing secret or magical about it to me. It is a nice photo, but it doesn't make me feel anything. I particularly like the lighting on the leaves in the tree.

Gave it a 5

i like the hinted trail, but don't know if i'm supposed to be looking at the trail from IN the garden, or the trail that Leads to the garden.
a 6 from me

One of my favorite books. While the colors are lovely, this doesn't really give me much of a feeling of a garden: either before when it's overgrown or after, once they've started to take care of it. Perhaps adding people would have helped to get some emotion into the shot. -5-

6...the first thing that popped into my mind was Weirwood from Game of Thrones. It's those bright red leaves. I like it more for those series of novels. I suppose it works for Secret Garden, but it seems like an obvious thing for that. Technically, I wish there was more information to see in the trees trunk, but I know this wasn't a simple exposure. A little more space on the left would have given the branch a bit of breathing room too, but that may not have been possible.

One of the best technically executed Secret Garden entries that fails to tell me about a garden. 5

Hmm... I picture something more intimate when I read that novel.

Still, roughly applicable, and what a LOVELY shade of red.

I like the painting feel of the image. Beautiful colors, although a bit dark for me. 6

Nice try with bright and natural color and good framing. What it lacks is any association with the story as far as I can see. 5

a pretty tree with sunlight on it. not an exciting composition. not an interesting "garden", nor does it look secret. 4

The tie to the story is loose on this, but it is there. Would like better light, and maybe more emphasis on the path through the trees behind. 5

That is really great composition.

Well done.

Nice light and color.5.

I love the red burst of colors.
There is nice DOF and detail.

I almost feel as if I walk into the darkness behind the foreground, I would enter a Secret Garden.
As a child, I really loved that book.

Nice work. Gave it a 6

Nice colors! I wish you had a few clouds that day to soften the contrast, but good effort anyways.

Beautiful branch, shame you couldn't have shifted to include the end of the branch, I imagine the was a choice made. Lovely light you've chosen, but it doesn't quite reinforce a secret garden scene. Lovely shot all the same.5.

Nice splash of red in the leave and play of shadows and light. Not getting so much "secret" garden though, but still serene and peaceful nonetheless!

Why is the secret garden so violently colored to the point of losing its magic? Why such sharpening?
The composition would be twice as interesting without being attacked by a poisonous red
