Shot on an old dirt road that looked out over Senaca Lake, on the second October DPC Ithaca GTG. It rained all morning and started to break up about this time. I tried to play off the darkness of the day to accent the nostalgic feeling. Just hoping it does well.

Yeah, the centered horizon probably hurt you. Still, I think it deserved much better than a 4.8! There are lots of nice complementary colors and it wouldn't take much to really make this one pop.

Wow, sucks that I was your only comment :( I think more than anything, the centered horizon probably did you in. Given how bright the sky is compared to the rest of the image, cropping more of it out to raise the horizon might have given this more impact.

Now, where have I seen this scene before? I was going to use a similar shot, but I just couldn't get enough pop out of it. The lighting just wasn't good enough. Still, it is a good composition and a nice shot. You've managed an even exposure throughout.
