Initial Reaction: Love the colors, especially the grass. I think I've been hiking in places like this before and it feels like a real day experience. Very pleasing...

Challenge: Pictures of the natural world are indeed fitting for an Earth Day challenge. The warm gold of the grasses offset by green trees and hazy skies definitely work together well. There are a few water spots that are easily noticeable...outside of a minimal challenge those should definitely go. (But they might count as an etc in the sensor dust category of the new rule set... I've been buried in homework lately so not fully sure on that point.)

Comments: As mentioned by Leontp, the rule of thirds may have helped you out here. There is a lot of white space in the sky, a narrower band (I.e., a third of the pic) as the white would have helped balance the picture. (Not to mention would have removed some of those spots.). I love how the warmth of the grasses balance with the cooler tones of tree and sky but the large amount of sky emphasizes how washed out the mountains are. Of course, since this is an Earth Day click, you could have been going for a hazy look on purpose. In your comments you mention a pathway ... I am afraid I don't get the reference as nothing feels like a path to me in the composition. A path or trail would have been a nice touch and might have offered some leading line potential. Overall I really like the grasses and the details of the greenish-yellow heads. There are a few heads that are a bit out of focus and distracting, especially the one right below the tree, but this is a minor nit.


I'll try to follow the things as stated by you, thanks for your guidance :)
