It's not very clear to me what is wrong about this one.

Haha, I like the idea, and I do think it fits the challenge. I think you did the best you could with the time of day. I wish the reflections on the rocks could have been taken down quite a bit -- they're so bright compared to the rest, it makes it feel quite busy. I wonder if a polarizer would have taken down the reflections on the rocks? (That really is a question -- I know it will take down leaves, not sure about rocks. :)

I've studied this for a while, and I'm not seeing anything wrong. I hope you describe what I'm missing in the notes.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Great picture of these big horn sheep/rams. The lighting is a bit harsh such that I wish there was more contrasts on the darker tones (they are a bit washed out when I know that they could be 'richer'). Still there is a lot of details. And try, try as I might I just don't see how this makes a connection to "You Are Doing It Wrong". I do have one idea but I am definitely not sure it that is what you were getting at. Maybe the big horn sheep at that is higher than the rest is supposed to be the "All Wise Guru" typically pictured up at the top of the mountain. Typically there is a person who has scaled all the way to the top only to receive an answer that is more mystifying than the question. Maybe that is the 'Consultation' going on...or maybe not given that it is not occurring at the tip of the mountain. Guess I will wait till after rollover to see the meaning.
