Canon 10D, 17-40 F4L. Saturation turned way up. I had to compress this one like crazy to get it under the 150k limit. First submission in a long, long time.

This is excellent compistion and execution in my most humble opinion. The desaturated looking sky and depth it causes pushed this to a 10 for me. Good luck!

Nice scene, fits the mood of November nicely with the contrast between the greens, browns, greys.

Great shot. Nice colors and use of leading line. It makes me want to walk down the path to see what's in the woods. 9

beautiful! it's very well composed, and the colors, especially the bare greyness at the top, really make it feel like novermber. is that selective desaturation or was it actually like this?

slightly oversharpened imo, but nice use of color and mood to create a representation of november

Good composition that fits well in the square format. The burning in the sky above the trees seems a bit to obvious, but I have to admit that it adds mood to the shot.

This "feels" like November as I know it. In a perfect world, I would have preferred a less wide path, but that wasn't up to you! One of my favorites for Calendar.

almost surreal difference between colourful ground and lacklustre sky/trees. don't know about the white border though. maybe rather black? or gray? twotone? Red?

Oh yes! Definitely a great calendar picture for November. I can really feel the winter-coming weather here. 10

I do like this, though it's perhaps a touch 'real' for my idea of a calendar shot. It has the feel of a Grodon Whyte shot, though that's a nexk-out-sticking comment, if ever there was one. The dynamic range seems a touch unlikely, but it works visually here.

umm - over processed to perfection - 10 and adding to my favoites

Very gloomy, I bet it would also look great in B/W but I love this shot, I would buy this in a calendar if the rest was in this quality.

Amazing Contrast in colours. Perfect representation of November. The grading of colours from Rich to sad-gray is very well done. For some reason, i wish i could've seen a little more on the left, perharps a 'wide' angle shot would've helped. This place is pure delight for an 'Halloween' or 'creepy' Tim Burton feature film (Sleepy Hollow-esque). I would really like to know where it was taken!
