This one has wonderful composition, which I think is it's strong point. The angle of the fence, the forground grasses and the trees in the background all work together well. The tones and brightness are very distracting to me. I would like to see this one re-editing for a more subtle, less blue effect and some darker tones.

This looks very washed out or over exposed. a lot of detail had been lost in the lighter areas. It's also too blue overall. Which works for some photographers on this site but is hard to pull off. I think when going with overall blues you want Darkers blue tones, the lighter ones aren't as asthetically pleasing.

over done....

I'm not sure what to make of this one. It lacks any deep colours, which gives it a weird look almost like a painting. On the other hand, I really like the way that looks. 7.

This looks fake, but nice like a back dorp in a play

interesting lighting

Maybe just a little heavy toward the blue, but very cold feeling, and, yet, still some warmth, too. Good shot.

I think this is very pretty! I don't like the purple colored tree that is poking out on the right. Crop it out and it would be better.

Great colors... The trees are in the best spots with a great view of the fence going out into the distance..

Overdone PP i guess. I dont like the overpowering blue tint to the whole image

Way over saturated... and what was potentially a good image is ruined. You might consider looking at future images on different monitors, since it could be that your monitor is not calibrated properly.

Don't give up the ship... you do have a good eye.

Almost looks like a painting, looks great!

Nice picture but I dislike the colors, sorry about that, there´s something wrong with the balance between cyan and magenta (or red and blue), I´ll give you 4 for a good choice of location. good luck

While I'm not entirely a fan of the processing, I do have to say it gives this a cold but magical look. So in this case, the more I look at it, the more I think I like it.

Too blue ...

I like it but that red on the right and on top takes me out of it

A super composition, but I am really not keen on the blue colour caste (not sure if this is a white balance issue or a deliberate postprocessing decision, but either way, doesn't work for me). None the less, a 6.

too blue....otherwise, nice

The blue overtones to everything here did not work for me; was the snow really blue to the naked eye? Was the tree/bush on the right really purple? The pastel effect was just a bit too much for me to take.

Nice scene but something weird going on with the colour, too blue/purple.

this beautiful landscape with nice composition with a little less blue would have earned a couple of extra points from me for sure.

edited badly but the photograph itself is well taken, framed and the perspective is great... still get a 6 from me

it doesn't need quite so much blue tint, but still nice
