Challenge: Minimalist Landscape (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Sony DSLR-a200K
Lens: Sony DT 18-70mm f/3.5-5.6 Aspherical ED Zoom Lens for Sony Alpha
Location: Ontario, Canada

Not sure how this will do in here because I'm not sure that I have the concept that others may have of minimal landscaping.

Criticisms: Processing overboard, noise, too saturated, not contrasted enough, boring

Score Bet: 5.18

I'm betting that score, hoping for more than that, of course but, figuring that the way things have gone in here lately for my shots....likely more around a 4.9.

Post Challenge: Happy with the score. It beat my prediction by quite a bit :) It seems that I was right that I might not have had the idea of minimal landscape...or, at least not one that others had in mind.

From the top finishers in this challenge, I see now that one has to be near water or mountain ranges LOL. Not a challenge topic that I'd enter again...unless I was on vacation near some water/mountains LOL ;)

Thank you everyone who commented! I truly appreciate your comments and the scores that you gave my shot. :)

I like this quite a lot. It is so unassuming but enormously expressive at the same time.

This feels especially minimal for some reason. Like something is missing -- should be there, was there, will come. This really works and I can't say why.

Nice bucolic but not minimalistic

I like it, it has great color and lots of interesting depth in its simplicity.
