This is another frame from my Fences shoot where I had this entry:
I've learnt to fire off a couple of frames just in case I need to enter more than one challenge :)

The end of the month crept up on me and I don't really have anything I'm that happy with for the Free Study. I'm hoping this will scrape into the 6's but I'm not that confident.

Back to see how you finished and whose this was. Great shot - should have scored higher IMO. Very nice.

Very peaceful scene. The single tree on the hill provides a nice counterpoint, and the colors on the grass are striking

Lone building and lone tree. Very nice angles

This has such a great feel - it almost seems like it's out of a fairy tale or enchanted somehow. The little tree just clinches the feeling. Quirky and cool with great colors. 8 from me. Ah nevermind...back to bump you to 9.

Most excellent composition. Quite surreal, actually. Great light, too.

Well done. I like the leading lines of the fence and the lone tree. I think actually that without the church the photo would have been even better.
