Amazingly beautiful. I thought it would place higher! It's such a great shot, John!

this looks like a beatiful place. in a strange way, though, the lighting gives it the feel of being an artificial set--like a museum display with a painted backdrop. i like the composition and subject matter, but it feels just a bit too sterile for me to connect with it emotionally.

Excellent color and subject. Did you use a fill flash?

This shot reminds me of a wild west backdrop. What a setting. Nice job.

Great overall appeal and colour but a little detail has been lost in the cacti.

The lighting looks a tad artificial but the composition is good, the sunset makes this all the more special...

This is a definite WOW image! I love the colors of the sky, the thumbnail really caught my eye, your choice of subject is wonderful! Good luck! Top pick I think! 10

well this is different
The image I feel is a little too dark and need some enhancement but points for a very good idea I like to see something new 8

Beautiful shot! Incredible lighting! I'll step out on a limb here and guess that this is Anza Borrego at the Visitor Center at sunrise. One of the LA DPC crew, perhaps? Forgive me if I'm wrong.

the odd lighting makes it look unatural, like a diorama

Very interesting use of light. I like how you put the brightest part of the sun behind the cactus. Looks like you used an off camera flash to the right. I think it came together well and keeps my eye interested and moving around the photo. 8

Very Good Image, I thought it should have been cropped closer on the left to offset the the garden being so central

Interesting lighting, but I don't care for the border.
