I really like the lighting and the diamentions of the picture...

Haha, nice composition, I like the way you've kept the orientation in landscape (i assume it WAS intentional? ;) ) it adds to the "What the...?" effect!

lovely colours, very nice exposure

Simple, elegant, sharp, composed of only straight lines, while not being boring. This is what this challenge should be all about. We have colour, contrast, shaddows, highlights, dark patches.......Everything.......
Great Submission. Best I have see so far......Well Done
