This one of mine scored just below 5 in the Greeting Card challenge. I figure it was just the wrong challenge. What does everyone else think?

the answers can be found in your comments.
- there is nothing really that says thanksgiving anymore than it ays early-fall afternoon or pretty view. It is not the imagery most would think of for thanksgiving.
- the colours need to pop, the sky is washed out and the greens could be richer.
also the images appears to be oversharpen where there is details on the trees.
Check out the kind of landscapes that do well on DPC:

'' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/368/thumb/216104.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/368/thumb/216104.jpg', '/') + 1) . '' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/367/thumb/213464.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/367/thumb/213464.jpg', '/') + 1) .

These images have an intensity that holds your attention that your landscape is lacking.
As a photo i would have given it a 5, for this challenge i may have gone as low as a 4 (due to relevents and compred with other photos entered)

No offense of course as the shot is ok but I second everything that mesmeraj said, and I too would probably have given it a rating of 4 but I looked at your profile and you can do much better. As a landscape it just isn´t interesting enough and nothing dramatic is going on and the colours are a bit muddy and the sky washed out...
