For once a landscape in a free study... I've never done very good with a landscape shot, but I've decided to try to improve my landscape skills, and this is an attempt in that direction. Hope to score a +6 with this (but it will probably end up around 5.5)

Post challenge:
Well, I didn't make the +6 but it was pretty close, and I'm quite satisfied :)

whoa how didn't this get a 6. Even though you were close I would have thought this would get a 6.4+ Great shot though.

I knew I recognized this! Well, not this exact bench, but the scenery is familiar. While attending college, I spent 2 summers working as a landscaper/small construction for a family friend's residence in Hornbaek, right on the water like this. I often rode my bike up the coast and was enchanted by the sunsets, sat on the benches like this that dot the coast. This photograph brings back all of those memories. Very nicely composed, the only improvement I can see would be if those other trees weren't behind the base of the main tree, seeing the outline of the main tree against the sky would make the pic 'cleaner' and I think more effective. Great shot!

The shape of the tree mirrors the shape of the clouds.

Beautiful shot. Love the way the clouds lead your eye to the tree.

a really great composition here. I like the fact that this isnt over processed like so many landscapes are here. you followed the rule of thirds here perfectly.
