Congrats mate. I would have liked to see the three of you carrying this window around. You must have looked very silly and it must have been very funny.

Awesome colouring in this one, looks very ethereal and fairytale like.

some how this one is unreal
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2006 06:15:01 PM
i think a little more saturation would improve the view of the image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2006 03:58:05 PM
great DoF, as well as a really nice view...i don't know where this was taken but it is a great scean and i would love to see this make it to the top somewhere GL
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Cool image. Can't wait to see how you did it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2006 11:54:19 AM
I love how the window shutters fram the path and building. Awesome!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2006 10:26:02 AM
Is that simply a photo behind a Frame? Look good though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2006 08:56:42 AM
Almos surreal, the difference between the frame and the scene. Maybe a little too extreme.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2006 12:27:06 AM
Really like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 09:25:06 PM
Good idea and well done photo.. I like how the path leads the eye to the house... A little too much yellow-green color on the dead grass, otherwise pretty good..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 09:16:50 PM
Absolutely love the framing of this image, just seems to invite you into the picture, makes me want to walk up the path and enter the house. Really well done, good luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 08:47:41 PM
Beautiful scenery. I wish it had had an old frame but really well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 06:19:10 PM
Nicely done, tones could do with more warmth. Effective PP.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 05:39:16 PM
Wow amazing work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 04:34:08 PM
wow that's crazy...did you take a window frame out with you or is that really where your window is? That's a beautiful scene...the best I've seen so far this challenge. Good work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 04:17:02 PM
size\perspective of window to path seems un-natural. Great idea. - 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 01:54:12 PM
love this one. almost a heida type edit. good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 12:29:48 PM
Interesting perspective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 11:25:06 AM
this really does look like the middle of nowhere.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 11:10:52 AM
Holly cow! This almost doesn't look real but I see it has been validated. GREAT photo, might see you on the front page next week I think! Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 09:59:44 AM
Doesn`t quite look real but nothing says it has to. Very good,9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 09:55:17 AM
This is really neat, I like how you cropped the picture right to the edge of the frame...it gives it that "portal" kind of affect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 09:40:50 AM
One of my favorites so far. Makes me want to crawl right outside this window.
Love the contrast of colors and darkness of background subjects. Great job here IMHO. 10

04/29/2006 08:29:48 AM
OK, Iceland? Good to have a frame in you pocket when you go out :) Like this frameing alot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 07:23:36 AM
Nice composition. the open window gives movement to the pic. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 06:31:54 AM
Wonderful, I almost can feel the breeze coming into home. It is great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 12:57:09 AM
Now this is a cool shot.
I'm still studying it trying to determine if it's all real or a setup.
Regardless, I really like this. Best of luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2006 05:29:39 PM
Very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2006 05:08:54 PM
Top 3. Nicely done. There is a surrealism to it that is very appealing. Great the way you cropped the image to exactly match the wooden window frame. The casual way you have the window swung open invites the viewer into the scene.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2006 02:27:48 PM
Very nice image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2006 09:17:14 AM
I love this shot! It's beautiful! Obviously it has been questioned since it say's it's been validated, but I'm having trouble even seeing why. I'd give it a 10 if I could vote in this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2006 03:01:24 AM
Stunning ! Can't explain why , maybe the textures and composition...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 08:03:46 PM
awesome.. looks surreal...
like the perspective is slightly off...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 06:37:24 AM
this is awesome and should do well...hope you score high with this 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 11:46:36 PM
The DOF is too deep. It would help if the window frame were slightly out of focus. With everything being so sharp, it looses any sense of depth and makes the picture look flat.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 08:22:43 PM
awesome photograph, reminds me of lord of the rings....hope it does well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 03:29:25 PM
very nice. I'd like to climb into my monitor to walk that path ;)

talking about the path, why didn't you choose to put it a bit more in the center? I think my urge to walk through the window frame would be much bigger! bumping you to 8

one of the best in the challenge.

Ingólfsfjallið fríða.. þetta verulega ævintýralegt hjá þér.. mjög skemmtileg mynd
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2006 02:22:06 PM
Very nice capture here. I really like the story-book feel of this and the open window frame that "invites" the viewer and the eye into the shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2006 01:40:49 PM
This is nice and I'm giving it an 8 but it seems a little fake to me. The window seems too close to the ground and grass. You probably brought a window outside and set up this shot, which is ok, but a better placement might have worked better. Right now it looks as if you were walking on that path you'd end up bumping into the side of the house that this window is suposedly attached to.

04/25/2006 11:01:58 AM
Beautiful shot and excellent post processing. I like this one alot!

This look so like a painting..... or even a scene out of a book or movie.....

Storybook... beautiful. HDR?

Wow! Nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2006 11:37:32 AM
Nice to have the detail on the window frame rather than the usual silhouette. I like the rural end-of-winter feeling.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2006 05:06:55 AM
Lovely, all the colors match and the window is totaly straight
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2006 03:44:24 AM
Fits the challenge well, and well taken...10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2006 01:09:40 AM
I enjoy this. I like how the windows are open, but at different amounts... nothing to critique here.
