This shot looks oversharpened. Lots of artifacts around the edges of the old dead tree. Too bad, since this is a very dramatic shot. I also find that the frame is a bit much. A thinner frame would have made for a larger image and might have avoided the artifacts. Nice composition.

Just an amazing shot! I love it. One of the best shot of this week. I love the B&W choice in this picture. I think the mist is helping you in this picture. No doubt, awesome picture. So, congrats for a fantastic work. Keep the good work. 10

Love the foreground tree and crop. Would have liked this to be bigger; some oversharpening evident especially in the back trees (halos).

Great cropping and subject.

Wonderful composition, the dead (?) tree is well in focus and I like the softness of the background. :-) Although I like solid borders a much, this one is too distracting for me: it's too wide for my taste. Maybe the third would be fine.

Superb subject. Like the crop too, and good call on both b/w and the frame (I usually don't like the frames so thick but this is very tasteful). I give it a 8, but I would give it a 9 if there weren't a slight oversharpening evident on the foreground tree (you can see it on the lower right side of the tree, the white line). Great job!

great picture. but why is there this big wide border??? I thought the image will look better without it.

Very nice shot. Border is maybe a little too wide for my taste, but a minor critism.

great shot and i think the thick border works well with it too

Okay, since there's been much convo on borders, let's start there, I like it but I think it's too thick, makes it kinda distracting. Love the tree and the composition of th shot. The choice was a good one, IMO. Nice shot!

Very good. A standout shot in this challenge. My only maybe is the branch running off the picture on the right. Therwise, an excellent shot. I like the cropping very much.

Technical: Most all images submitted fit the challenge. This one fits nicely. Exposure composition focus lighting all very nice.

Personal: Love the photo. The border is overbearing for my tastes. I'd like to see more of that "screen real estate" used up by the photo itself!

My vote: 7

Very good composition. The frame is maybe too big...?

I like your shot a lot. Works well in black and white. Good composition and overall a great photo. 10

This looks over sharp and over saturated.

One of my favorites this challenge. I find the wide black border to be quite overwhelming, but I love your shot. Composition is wonderful.

Perhaps a tad oversharpened?
12/10/2003 12:23:57 AM
I usually don't care for a real bold border, but it worls very well here, especially with the b/w...well done
