You were robbed on this shot. Excellent photo and met the challenge perfectly.

I thought this was not only very Zen, but very beautifully done too. Should have placed higher just for the title! Great job.

The subtle toning works so well with this simple scene. I could almost believe this is film ;)

Definitely my favorite so far. Love the sweeping curve of the trees and the textures of the clouds and the trees. Too bad about the compression artifacts (giving the sky a mottled look and adding a noise halo around the trees). You realize your image file is 36KB, far smaller than the maximum 150KB? - 8

Belongs to the gallery of fine arts. The grainy atmoshphere is remarkable. Nice imagination.

Great photo. I really like the colors (or lack of colors) and it portrays the sense of that early morning calm perfectly. The copmosition is great, though I do wish the top and right of the foremost tree were not cropped off. 7.
