Nice colors, but looks a bit oversharpened.

Nice... the bright light (probably the sun) seemes a kind of disturbing, but the rest of the colors I absolutely love...

Wonderful capture of the subjects structure, the background, however, despite the nice blends of color, makes me feel cross-eyed.

Loveley, calming image. Nice clarity on the dandilion clock and the bokeh is great too, showing just enough detail of the sunset. I also like the colour here, very nice! Good job!

I like the effect you've created, but the brilliant sun is a little too distracting TO ME...for a really high score. 6

The dandlion needs to be more clear...but the idea is a hands down ten.

The sun is extremely bright and really overwhelms the silhouette. Other than that I really like this photo, the sky color is awesome.
