A pretty nice shot that takes the viewer away... :)

8 - Wow. Very nice. Like your framing. Maybe, a little more land at the bottom for additional balance - if it was there of course (and your call anyway, also 'of course') - very, very minor - but looks like something poking up mid to right at the bottom of the frame - which could be why there is not more 'fore'. Nice shapes, colors and elements. Overall (and I noticed this at first too), could be a visual thing and/or perspective thing, but looks like it needs the thinnest whisker nudge rotate up on the right to straighten, or a perspective correction - perhaps more noticeable on the shape of the land in the distance on the left. But you may find this all too 'nit-picky'... if so, just ignore ":)".

Back for a bump. I'm not a bit fan of the wide borders, but the photo itself it beautiful. This is one of my favorites of the challenge.

The lines and colors in this image are breathtaking. Nice crop and border, too. Well done! 9

simple, colorful, but it does strike me that the sky color is really unnatural...but it may not be.

Well composed. The greens seem over saturated.

Sometimes the intense over saturation bugs me but this works great. I love the undulating line of the landscape and the pops of yellow and green. Nice composition with the power poles and single tree. 7

I don't know if you realize this, but your picture has created a special meaning for me. I was immediately drawn to it when I saw it in thumbs. And opening full, did not disappoint me at all. Wonderfully done!

Now the special significance: It denotes the colors of Indian Flag. Ah!

For the beautiful shot and special something: 10.
