I really like this as an example of an excellent landscape that doesn't need to be blindingly vibrant. The muted tones and color have an incredible range and blend smoothly, giving it an extra punch of emotion - soft and quiet. I'm a big fan of the composition, as well, although I might have added just a hair more grass at the bottom, so the verticle posts didn't seem quite so crowded against the bottom edge.

I really like this. It has almost a painterly feel to it. Great subject matter and wonderful colors.

Back to comment and bump: The fence gives this image a wonderful focal point that is missing in many of the images in this challenge. I also appreciate the natural looking colors. 10

I love the post editing. Beautiful warm colors. The bottom crop seems a bit tight. It's almost like a painting. LOVELY! 8
