great color

I failed to see how this picture is old. Asian countries still farm the old fashion way.

Intresting shot, the green seems a bit over processed. 6

this photo is very vibrant

good subject for this challenge - saturation perhaps a bit overdone.

I love the greens, but the blown out hat somewhat distracts from the otherwise lovely image.

I like thism the guy in the feild doing the cropping, it's...intersting

A little too saturated.

Great shot dang i bet that square handle is rough on the hands

The green appears almost too saturated, but the effect is good.

the green is very bright, pops right out of the picture. the path through the grass is good, as it lessens the intensety of the grass.

Wow, that is bright grass.

I like the concept... nice shot on a bright sunny day. That green is almost too bright though.
01/31/2008 01:37:54 PM
the green tones are too powerful, IMo

Lovely green colours - just seems a little overprocessed somehow which lightly spoils what for me could have been a great entry. A lower viewpoint at about the grass height level, with some blurred blades in the foreground would have allow you a) to see more of the face, b) opened up the background c) added more interest for not being at "normal height" - the viewpoint in which we probably view the world most of the time anyway

I thing the "grass" is oversaturated... resting importance to the women! :(
Voted 7 since the idea is great!

Great subject and very interesting picture, but the grass looks unnaturally vivid, almost flourescent.

I love the angle in which this was taken.
01/30/2008 11:05:00 AM
That grass is crazy unnatural but it makes for a beautiful photograph.
01/30/2008 07:28:40 AM
It could be my eyes, but the saturation seems a little strong. The picture is a strong image, deatils are sharp. well done
