Strange dreaming vision... this is a very interesting shot. I give you a posthumous ribbon. Huh no, I can't, but you'll got one anyway ;)

The darkness of the photo and the geese just lit really adds something spectacular to this. It leaves a lot to the imagination...most of the time photos like this don't work well...but this one really is a great shot.

oh, but we are not supposed to hear what these wicken creatures are saying. I'd like having this one around awhile.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: So easy to have gone with something more conventional with this scene - instead you give us this dark mysterious and slightly sensual take on the scene. Masterfully restrained and fully of smudgy goodness. I really like your use of negative space too.

Critical Stuff: I wouldn't dream of it.

Overall: Looking forward to seeing who is responsible. Amazing stuff.

Wonderful oil-painting-like image. Lovely muted tones and mood, and excellent yet subtle contrast. Absolutely beautiful.

This could be in a gallery as it has that feel about it.

I like the ethereal feel of this picture. The treyish purple shape in the background middleright of the picture doesn't seem to add much to the scene, I feel if you edited it out/blackened it you'd get a better picture. Right now it takes away from the lit geese.

I looks like you can get two neat visuals from this one shot by just drawing a line through the middle, with the left being a bright glade and the right being more storybook fantasy glow.

Oh this is straight out of a fairy tale. I like it. Like it's just struck midnight and they are about to turn into something else. :)
