"HOME SWEET HOME" is obviously prefect for the Country Life Challenge. Congratulations on your yellow ribbon, a nice addition to your collection. Many voters loved this shot, obviously by the votes and number of comments.

I think the most striking aspect of this image is the reflection in the water, it looks virtually prefect. The composition is very strong and feels prefect. The overall balance of the image is just right. The balance between the top and bottom as well as left in right feels like all elements line up just perfectly. The colors are very appropriate, this shot could have looked extremely cold with that large body of water and yet it does not. This is just an amazing shot. Again congratulations.

Great photograph. One of the best in the challenge. Curious how many dnmc comments you are getting since it might not be what people think of as country life. works beautifully for me.

nice mystery in this photo. the title is unconvincing, and one wonders what the relationship is between person and building. There's a whole sky and another reflected sky between the two. Yet they are symmetrical within the frame, both on the horizon line.

I dont think this would be a great example of "country life" it could well be for someone(seems more coastal to me). However, great photo! Nice lighting, I think slightly lighter clothing might be better. good luck
