great color. Not that it really matters, but I can't believe that you got no "10's" Got a really nice pop to it.

IMHO the cloud on the Left is a little too dark but I do like the greens and the colouring on the barn is good :o)

I love the textures of the old barn. Beautiful colors.

peace is not found on
a pedestal, but under
a dandelion.

too processed, I think, just off a bit to my eye, The dark clouds are not peaceful.

first the meeting challenge bit; apart from the title there really isn't very much that conveys a sense of zen. harmony was one word i think used in the description, and a near derelict tin shed in the middle of a field doesn't really give that impression. HOWEVER, it's a great picture still - the sky has a great sense of foreboding drama (which also isn't very zen), the greens nicely oversaturated to great effect, and the shed itself been treated well (albeit seems a little on the excessively noisy side). really good stuff, though 7.

I dunno if I'm feeling much zen in this one. This photo to me, is not still or peaceful, although I love the colors. There is just too much distraction in the movement in the sky, and the complexity in the barn siding. I really love the rolling green hill, and the lighting in this, though. In another challenge, I'd have voted this higher. Great job from the 'Great Job Baggie'!

Why does this place look familiar? I think the colors are cool but they look so unnatural! anyways:7

Wow, these are some saturated colors. For my taste, it's a little much because I'm looking for calming images in this challenge. I think with a drop in the saturation, particularly the green, this would be lovely. I love the composition!

The darkening clouds take the peacefulness away for me personally
