Greetings from the Critique Club...

This is a fairly nice landscape shot and the colors provided allow it to meet the challenge in its own way for sure. The composition is acceptable and there isn't really anything 'wrong' with the image as it stands. As far as the challenge is concerned, I think there are two specific parts of this image that kept it from scoring above a midline score.

1) The concept of complementary colors is not 'slap you in the face' strong with this photograph. The photo does fit the challenge, but not with the strength required to have an above average finish.

2) The landscape itself is beautiful, but there isn't really a stand-out strong point that makes it a very powerful landscape image. One of your commenters used the term 'flat' and I think that fits this image very well. The time of day and/or weather conditions didn't lend themselves to strength in contrast for some reason.

Good luck in the future :)
