Initial Impression:
Beautiful colors. Nice, warm, comforting feel. I love Lord of the Rings!

Composition:
It's not bad, but there really isn't a focal point that my eye naturally stops on. Considering the challenge, perhaps if you had arranged the map & items to point to The Shire in the lower corner, or something.

Color/Tone:
I think the colors are gorgeous. And you have captured not only the look of Middle Earth, but also the feel, which is astonishing.

Focus/Exposure:
Great focus & lighting. Judging from your aperature/shutter speed setting, you used very low lighting, which was an excellent choice.

Title:
Not spectacular, but not bad, either. The challenge was "your corner", so it wasn't really necessary to repeat that, but that's just me nitpicking.

Meets the Challenge:
I think it does exceptionally, because, like you said, although you may not physically live here, this is where your spirit soars.

Summary:
Great "out of the box" entry! It personally resonates with me, because I appreciate how someone could connect with the Shire so deeply. You've presented the poignant, subdued & terrible beauty of Middle Earth brilliantly.

Appropriate in keeping with the spirit of Tolkien. Love the soft texture of the feather. Have a soft spot for this being a fan of LOTR.
