Oh this reminds me of the "Shire" in Lord of the Rings. I think I can spot a Hobbit... Really cool shot! Love the HDR effect. The perspective and sharpening method here makes it look like a "miniature" landscape. The sky is amazing.

This would be an excellent source image for processing into a "fake miniature" picture.

Not sharp enough in the distance and that's where my eye goes first... searching for the resting place/subject.

Great colour, and DOF. When I first looked at it, it looked like a model set.

The greens & yellows are a tad oversaturated. 6

Nice looking place. Shot is a bit over processed, maybe.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2009 07:30:56 AM
Such a nice scene but the focus looks a little soft unfortunately and the greens look a bit unnatural.

A lovely scene. To oversaturated for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 01:46:33 PM
Dramatic. What a day to get this without a lot of bright reflections.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 01:34:53 PM
Excellent picture, love the color and detail.

03/14/2009 11:17:51 AM
this is really pretty...but I think you pushed the colors just a tad to much...it has an unnatural glow
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 09:26:53 AM
Lovely light and beautiful green colors. I like red colored road here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 06:31:05 AM
I don't understand. What's lonesome about it? There are like 3 other dwellings in the frame.

Nice colors.

A bit over-processed
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 03:27:33 AM
The processing - the brightness and saturation particularly - are a bit much for my tastes. The composition is good though, with the sweep of the hill leading the eye down to the farm.

What gorgeous color! Very nice capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 01:03:28 PM
Great sense of depth in this image. The colors are wonderful. The sky looks like a painted background and the farm like a little model.

Nice landscape
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 12:32:54 PM
I really like this! If only the water were any color but brown! Has a very surreal look to it though.

It really looks like a storybook farm, what a great place :)

03/13/2009 10:05:14 AM
The rich emerald green and blue sky- what a lovely scene.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 07:57:28 PM
Nice composition. I probably would have cloned out the railing thing on the left in the grass area but nice lighting and colors.

Perfect sky and clouds, perfect greens, perfect little pond... This is like a puzzle where every piece fell into place.
