Remote farm along I-24 in Western Kentucky. Actually taken as a passenger in a 65 (or faster) MPH car. Cropped out blurred foreground, dodged trees for more intensity, adjusted curves, fixed a few spots on barn,removed a stray sign in driveway, set white point based on central cloud, and re-sized to meet challenge. I feel this is one of my better 'drive-by shooting'-images.

A nice scene, but the coloring here looks off - was this saved in CMYK format rather than RGB? The cyan channel looks a little over-saturated.

Very cool colors captured. The focus seems a little out of sorts in the trees.

Very bright this - the sky has gone to something far too pale to be interesting. The composition is OK, but perhaps could be more successful with a variety of zones to attract the eye - this is very much in a single line across frame, and perhaps some foreground, or progression of distance into the shot, would help.

Nice color in the sky and nice composition. I kinda wish the house was a different color, like a bright red or something. It would add a lot more contrast and interest.
