On a way to my friends wedding in Canada, we drove by this Orchard. Beautiful just beautiful was what came into my head. Took some shots, and my wife thought it would go great for the Vanishing Point. I think this is what Vanishing Point means. Hope everyone enjoys.

Hello from the Critique club, my name is Jon Rowe, and i will be looking at your image this evening :)

Composition/Lighting : lighting on this is spot on, VERY nice. the only thing i could say about this to improve would be possibly placing the horizon line on the top third or bottom. nonetheless, that's just if i had to nitpick. you did a great job on this. very nice tonemapping, and everything else works very well together.

Challenge : meets the challenge perfectly. everything leads right to the point of the end. very nice, i gave it an 8

Conclusion : you did very well, i honestly can't think of anything that jumps out bad about this image. keep producing great work. great job!

Keep on shootin!

Good luck on your future challenges:)

I love the color and contrast, and the demension in the clouds looks really cool. However, I feel like its a little oversharp. This doesn't hurt the flowers and the orchard really. It just makes the clouds look grainy.

This is a very well executed shot. Everything about is very nice. I like the definition in the clouds too. 8

One of the best actual photo subjects in the competition let down a bit by oversharpening IMO. Beautifully composed though.
