This photo was taken at sunrise on a beautiful late September morning in New England. The morning dew was helping to light the grass, giving it a nice contrast against the dark background of the trees.

Hello from the Critique Club,

Congratulations on a fine score on your first challenge entry. To start with, you did an excellent job capturing the detail in the grass using backlight. This detail, when combined with the fluorescence of the seed heads, helped you achieve the solid score you received. What kept this image from scoring higher is that many of the voters were looking for a lot more contrast then what is present in your image. Although your background is dark compared to the grass, it has a lot of gray tones to it that doesn't really covey the high contrast feel that many of the voters were looking for. Again, congratulations on a very solid score and I look forward to seeing more on your entries in the coming weeks.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions regarding this critique.
