Beautiful landscape. I can't wait to see where this was taken.

This is really a pretty scene. On my monitor the green and the reds in the mid-ground look oversaturated and un-natural.

If the storm clouds are the focus then to include more of the clouds and less of the green (especially the little white house) would benefit the overall.

nicely seen and captured. can't help but feeling, though, that the processing went just a little too far, as it seems to have wound up rather painterly. while i love the drama and the lines, i do wish i could enjoy it more as a photograph. oh, well, hope this does well for you. good luck!

Tones are awsome, I love the complexity, it's very busy but works remarkably well. Definition is great. Good luck!

the greens are amazing, wish the sky had more blues in it though.

Colors are very saturated .... almost to an unearthly hue. Love the details in the sky.

It's very postcard. Rolling hills, nice clouds. 8

Nice shot but it come out a bit over saturated
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very well done I think the color has just a little too much snap, or just my computer (8)

great picture.

Great green. The clouds and the far distant hills seem artificially softened - like you could just set your depth of field to limit at about two miles! Good punchy colours, though perhaps the browns and ambers have been taken a touch too far for me. It's the light across the middle-distance that really gives this shot it's impact.

This is a great image but I feel it appears over saturated.

Beautiful light and scene. I do think that the editing has spoiled this a little though - and I also think that, apart from the observation, it's difficult to see what you have delivered here that someone else with the same camera couldn't. I'd like to have seen more of a focal point or some foreground interest which would lift this out of the ordinary.

Seems like the saturation may have an over-boost, but a beautiful landscape.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Looks like the greens have had their saturation song but evokative of those halcyon days of Spring. All the best.

I believe this would have been nicer if it had been cropped at the bottom. It is a beautiful photo.

This is an excellent landscape - the composition is excellent and I absolutely love it! I hope it does well! Great job!

a little oversharpened, else would have been a 9. giving an 8. nice work.

aMAZING!!!! The colors!! Could they BE any more vivid and pretty? I love the perspective that the little house gives to the grandeur and massivenes of the whole scene.

Nice scene, but the image looks a bit overcooked to me.

Stunning shot, depth, deep rich colors. Painterly.
