Hi there. This definately meets the challenge in my opinion. parallel lines going off into the distance definately says vanishing point to me. I like the colors. The greens are nice and strong, and I like how the red of the brick pillar stands out among the greens.
The telephone pole thingy (as you have heard) is a distraction. Stands out in the crowd, and doesn't seem to really 'belong' in the photo.
Your focus and clarity on the fence is good.
Lighting seems to be alright, no distracting shadows. My only complaint there would be that the whitness of the lion thing is a bit too white, and therefor washes out some of the detail.
I like the angle and framing you chose to do this at. I like how it draws your eyes from left to right across the photo. I also like that the fence is in the lower half of the photo, not dead center of the photo.
As I look even closer, there is a bright red triangle in the lower right hand corner of the photo. It's really bright and stands out a lot after I notice it. Is that something on the ground, or is this something you camera put there? Seems really weird.
Anyway, I think it's a nice shot, the subject doesn't make me jump out of my seat with excitement, but technically pretty well done.

I like the way the fence seems to bound wild, untouched forest, and the way it goes off into the distance. I wish there were a little more detail in the "keeper," some more texture or shadow.

Neat subject. I likethe colors that you have captured here. The statue appears to be slightly overexposed. The blue band around the post really draws my eye. Too bad that had to be in the picture.

Nice shot. I really love the contrast of all the greenery on the white fence.

the pile with blue ribbon spoils the effect. going closer to the fence could make it better too. In my opinion only ofcourse.

Light pole takes away from the focal point in your photo.
