Took this shot as we travelled north ... was a fantastic image that we saw from the road. I reduced brightness ... increased contrast .. and reduced size .. with a final minor sharpen.

Hello from the Critique Club.

Well this is an interesting image to critique, and I actually quite like it.

It looks as if this was a technically sound image to begin with, not one that was turned to negative to draw away from any technical problems it might have had.

I like the purple lawn, this image works well as a negative because of the neat colours that came from it.

The fence makes good leading lines to guide viewers eyes through the shot. It has a nice composition, and looks like a well thought out shot. I think it deserves more than a 5.2, but with a challenge like this, every voter is looking for something different in the challenge images.

Nice work.

I love the curves, it might look nice as a black and white. my only criticism is that the white bushes(?) are a bit too white. But as I say I like the composition
