Nicely composed. I love the interplay of the colors here, and the layered curves throughout. Terrific; I'm bumping it up a point.

Even before I saw your title the words "Shire" and Hobbits flashed through my mind when I saw this image. Very nice indeed.

Awesomeness!! Even with the round doors (is this really the place?)! I like the colors in the clouds and the solitary tree on the hill, very nice. -BB

a lovely rural scene - i like the way the hill rises up to the right with the big shade tree on top - i am not fond of the pinkish color of the sky however
