amazing dof, the light as it touches several spots in your frame adds depth and interest. One of my favorites this challenge

Great lighting/detail on the mountains. Effectively layered composition; if there's more of this to the left and right it would make a stunning panorama.

Very nice scene. The photo improves imo if you crop it they way the two plant bushes at the bottom aren't seen, that makes the whole of the image simpler and better. Otherwise I like this Image.

This is a beautiful image. I really would have loved to see the whole thing in sharp focus. The plants in the foreground are a bit soft and I think would look better if they were sharp. The colors are just fantastic and you can almost sense how crisp the air is just from the picture.

Beautiful fall scene. Very deep DOF is nice. Colors are spectacular. I like the composition. Over several rounds of review, I bumped this up and up to a 10.

This highly processed coloring wors in many pictures that are posted here. It gives them an ethereal, other-worldly quality. But IMO, it doesn't work here. Its too busy for such a simple composition and detracts from the effect of the whole.

Great Clarity. Nice composition

Beautifully colored landscape. Bumping to 9.

Beautiful scene, the "darkness" of mood in this photo I find attractive, while the little shots of color (blue sky, yellow flowers, and green sprigs) add interest and draw the eyes throughout the shot. Well done.

a little over-sharpened but this works well.

Whoooaaah this is simply stunning, what is this picture doing here between the 6's? I guess I clicked wrong while voting.. Great that I see it again while commenting, will bump you to a 9.
Great colors, very nice composition.
Good luck.

Tad over-sharpened for my tastes.

very nice - what if you had gotten the camera lower and used the foreground weeds to block the dirt road in the middle?
