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

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.

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

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

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.

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.
