Greetings from the Critique Club!

Initial impression: Very lovely textures, I agree with the comments likening them to feathers. Reminded me of emu feathers in terms of colour and texture. Could be mistaken for a pastel sketch.

Technical: Considering how hit-and-miss shots from a moving car can be, this one really turned out very well. Composition is a little centred, but lighting is soft and natural, like that some branches are in focus. The foreground grass and heavier shadows/trees in background really help make this shot by adding depth.

Artistic: Compelling image, soft and dreamy feel. Especially like the two pale birches flanking the others in the shot. Natural framing at its best!

Overall: One of 2500 pics, you say? Is that all? ;-) Well done on a strong 2nd-place finish.

Feel free to PM me with any questions,

Susan

Oh yes! Well done indeed! I think it's very hard to pull off shots like this and have them look like art rather than just a bunch of blur. You most certainly have, and I'm glad it is a winner! Congratulations!

Thanks everyone,
for your nice comments and scores.
I forgot to mention that I added an extra twist in the movement of the car by quickly move my hand in the opposite direction I was driving.

I like the pencil sketch feel though think a little more contrast is needed.
