I don't normally take landscape photos. but today the clouds were interesting and the light just looked good. I noticed this cluster of trees on a rolling hill with nothing else around. I was in no hury to get home si I stoped and took a few shots. This was the best one.

WOw...definetly a gorgeous shot, but where is the minimilism? Otherwise it is just beautiful, the colors are so strong
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I do not see the subject. So I cannot determine if it is a strong point nor if it is very small. I like the picture very much however, although the border overwhelms. A 4 is ths best I can give.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 03:54:58 AM
Beautiful! Just the border is a ititle bit to thick.. or it would have been better without?.... Anyway a good shot!

Just wanted to let you know how well your image worked for me on an emotional as well as aesthetic level. I feel warmth and calm when looking at this picture. Proves that sometimes less is best.

Nice color and simplicity. Are the trees the subject that are 'alone'? Nice balance of the composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice shot!

Very beautifull picutre. I wish I had some landscape like that near my home. Love the green vs blue. I could only imagine how great it would have look with less clouds. 8

Very nice image....................some technical problems with artifacts in the sky and hills. with I could give you a perfect score.............8
04/29/2005 06:54:32 PM
Is there a house in the trees you are referring too? I am not sure, I love this picture specially the ground, the clouds might be more "burned" for my taste and shaping differently but who can control the clouds??? Amazing shot.

The border gives this snap well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2005 10:24:15 AM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2005 01:50:19 AM
although i love borders, i dont like this one. the picture is beautiful, but it feels trapped in the heavy black border. very nice curvature and sky. nice composition (9)
coming back, i cant resist giving you a 10

This is probrably my favorite sky-clouds-scenery-tree pictures. very nice colors and scale. I find the border a bit thick. But overall a great job. I gave it a 7.

Good colours and great cloud formation. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 03:34:20 PM
Very nice work. Subject easily identifiable and has power in you photograph. I like the slight saturation increase and good lighting. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2005 02:48:55 PM
Strong, simple composition. I was hoping for just slightly more contrast in the earth areas (the clouds look great). The thick border is distracting for me. Great capture, must have been a fun place to shoot. 8

border is strongest subject for me

real nice, deep rich color. good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 10:37:22 PM
A very subtle image wherein many voters may miss the point. My eyes are directed and acknowledge the trees as the subject. Good photography. Bumping up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 08:07:42 PM
Love the curvy line of the hillsand the rich greens. Beautiful compositon. Nice light.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 02:14:01 PM
Gorgeous! The clouds at the top seem a little blurry. Is that motion blur from using a long exposure or are they just blurry clouds?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

kind of looks like a windows XP desktop, 6

Great composition and color. I like this one the best so far. I gave it a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2005 11:10:15 AM
I like this image. I wonder if you were to saturate the greens a bit if it wouldn't add to this image.
