Greetings from the Critique Club!

Very striking colors, clarity and sharpness. This meets the challenge very well especially how the sky dominates the composition. The couple in the background completes the image. However, I think the couple could have been better captured. Their legs and arms are hard to discern from this distance. If this was a sunset shot with the foreground field in shadow and the couples as silhouettes it would have been really difficult to see that they were people. Perhaps a slower shutter with a shutter burst would have produced a more appealing position of the couple?

Other than that this is perfect. The cloud cover is nice as is the POV.

I'll bet they're going to that house 'Under the Sun'! The sky just seems a little too blue but maybe I'm just used to looking at the sky through smog?

Perfect composition and great colors. The choice of a red jacket is well done too and a nice eye-catcher. A very impressive shot, thanks for sharing and good luck for the challenge!
