Oops! ;^) Tried to get a bit artsy with this. I LOVED the lighting, and I thought the foreground grass added a suitable flavor given the location of the shoot. Funny how the lower scoring images are sometimes your own personal favorites...this one is being printed. ;^)

For me, there really isn't one main focal point in your image, but it gives me an odd voyouer sense. Like I'm a hunter waiting for the deer or a Civil War soldier waiting for the enemy to come over the crest. I like that about your photo - how it makes me feel, not necessarily the visual aspect of it.

I think the focal point, the fences, get lost in the trees here. I like the way you tried to frame this one though with the grass.

A bit too much going on here I think. Nice colors and good focus though.

The blurred grass in the foreground is really distracting.
