Great effect, looks more like a painting than a photo.

Very moving photo, sur-real to the viewers eye. I love it, now I need to know how you do this! Really like the whole setup here, great work.

Great composition and subject matter. Lighting and detail are good, rich in color without being over-saturated, and good use of splitting the shot with the diagonals.

I love the contrasts here, the tree, house, and ground balanced out by the green of the sky. The shot would be too overpowering if the sky was blue, so the touch of grey sky really helps to balance the image. 8

I adore the "painted" look of this. The whole look and feel is intensified and commands your gaze.

this looks to be an interesting image, but i'm not sure what to make of the cropping that you chose. the colors and textures look like they have a lot to offer, but somehow the composition you've presented seems imcomplete. hope you have better luck with the other voters, because 6 is the best i can do here.

I swear this looks like the house that fell on the witch in wizard of oz! :-) I love the technique here. I hope you'll detail it later for us. Good luck in the challenge! (finished voting, returning to say that this is one of my top picks!)

You did a good job on Whaler's Cove. Nice angle.

Thats a very pretty scene - parts of it look a tad overprocessed. But that tree is fantasic.

Did you use Gothic Glow on this shot...almost looks surreal, like a painting. Great colours and mystic feel. Cropping seems a little tight on the left but still a nice image.

A beautiful old tree, I love the colors of this shot, I would like to see all of the cabin.

Ah the Whaler's cabin at Point Lobos...(I got inlaws who docent there) anyways this is a pretty cool angle. I might have dropped back a little further to include more of the ground in the foreground and a tad less sky above the cabin. The pic looks quite smooth from, I'm assuming, the use of neat image or a NR program. Almost too smooth for me. This is a very good shot that might have worked better in high contrast b/w giving a sense of age.

This is a really neat photo! I like it a lot, but you are probably hearing about maybe the NeatImage blurring the colors on the barn. It detracts a little, but I still love the photo a lot! Good luck.

This looks really different.... the colors and perspective lend this a surreal look.
