I like the division into three parts, that works really well in this image. However, nothing seems to be in sharp focus, and the blown out sky makes it look a little like a snap shot.

Nice title and the image does convey some feeling of "Silence" The focus looks a little off though. 5

I would've shot this so the treeline was the foreground. The tall grass takes some of the focus away. Then you could've gotten a bigger image with more details.

I would've loved to take this photo and used hdr and visited it both day and night. You could try that. Would've made one heck of a desktop image!

good: you have a good subject and nice light.

bad: well the image is quite blurry and i can't see any detail in anything.

Interesting concept, the tower is well positioned. The sky's over exposed and has lost detail, the foreground could be sharper, though I like the sense of movement below the hedge

It's a little blown out on top. It's hard with basic editing to get a well exposed field (which you have) and a well exposed sky/white sentinel in the same shot. Maybe try retaking this closer to dusk to get a more balanced shot?

this doesn't scream silence to me bu is quite nicely composed. the horizontal line between trees and field seems skewed to me.

Image is fuzzy and out of focus. I do not like the title! You should not ask for comments in the title of the picture!

I don't see a matching with the challenge... ok, probably there is silence, but that is not so clear.

sorry, not enough DOF, too dark in the trees, sky is blown, too much foreground composition would be much better, if the bottom quarter was cropped off.
