I think this is an amazing image. The shape of the sculpture, the shape of the trees...the colors in the sky and the trees. The lighting, composition...I can't say enough good things about this image.

Into my favorites it goes.

Very designed looking shot. Excellent stuff.

It's unusual, engaging, well composed, fascinating, stylish and probably a winner. It looks like it's well edited but I'd like to see the original to see how much. [10]

Nice shot.

Simply spectacular, I love the contrast in the modern art vs the trees, the color of the leaves and the sculpture against the purple. Excellent compostion and balance. This certainly is my choice for blue ribbon. Absolutely stunning capture.

wow, a cool capture of the sky, a very good contrast between the art opf nature - yellow trees and the art of man - that sculpture. It gives an impression of some kind of a sci-fi scene.... 10

The sky is great... was this accomplished with hue/saturation? Love the beautiful simplicity of this shot. Very nice!

Not sure about the purple sky. Although it's purple it doesn't give me a feel for the book it's named for. Nice presentation and composition. 8 -danny

I like this for everything that isn't there. Very nice and clean.
Back again. I really like the feeling of this. It is so well balanced yet it isn't boring. Normally that much empty sky would detract from it, but here it adds to the silent feeling. I will be adding this to my favorites after to challenge.

This is an amazing shot! I love the purple sky effect and the yellow hue of the trees against the purple horizon adds alot to this shot, not boring at all I love it.

I like the picture but I'm not sure why. Like the background color. The trees stand out. Composition is very good. I think the thing that makes me uneasy is the cube. Can't tell you why but I look at it with suspicion even though I am reading right above me that the picture has been validated. I do like it though but just can't tell you why. I gave you an above average rating.

I love the sky & the contrast of the trees, however I fee that the sculpture detracts from the portrayal of the title.

This has an almost surreal effect going on. I like it, one of my favs so far 8

WOW!!! This is not a photo! This is a dream of a photo. It's so nice it cannot be true. Name becomes it well too. Can't help it! I have to give a 10 to this one too.

the color composition is very harmonic and somehow unusal.
Interesting composition of modern art and nature. I really like this one :)

I love the colours, but I think it would be more effective without the cross-shaped monument.

Interesting composition and tones.

Very pretty shot. I like the grainy effect; it makes it look like a painting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very interesting sky. The yellow trees are an interesting shape. In fact, this whole picture is very appealing.

I like the image very much, though I can't relate it easily to the story.

This is growing on me - like the graduated purple tones - good use of empty space.

What an extradordinary shot, I love it.

Very art nevo, I like this. Great feeling of open expanse.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/12/2003 01:57:47 PM
great shot. It's a really nice colour purple too. I think there is too much going on in the foreground, especially if the focus is to be on the purple sky. Maybe if there was just the trees or the sculpture, IMO, it might be a better shot. But the shot is nicely focused, sharp and crisp. Good job

really surreal, perfect composition, what a sky
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/12/2003 12:20:11 PM
What a great use of color and space! I would have preferred to have all the trees completely within the frame.

WOW 10.
I love surrealism.
