I just couldn't resist this shot when I saw it. I shot this on my way into work in the morning. Then I had to come up with a band name to fit.

Terrific mood and a good title. Wonderful capture. I can just hear the serene music now.

This is great and you picked a perfect font for killing poets ;-)

I absolutely love this photo! I agree that if it was square you would have scored much higher. Bob...this is beautiful!

Bob - I really liked this one! What a beautiful photograph, and your font choice was absolutely perfect! It was definitely the square crop thing that kept you from scoring in the mid-6's in my opinion.

This could really really be a very strong entry. I believe you should have used a square crop. Nice shot anyway.

wrong shape - looks more like a postcard - nice effect on the trees

Great image!!! I would have liked to see the font a different color, but looks nice like it is. The size, who cares, 7.

Dreamy... not being square really throws me. Maybe this is a fold-out lp cover? Go Team Spleen! (I guess this is bmartuch)

Love the softness of the picture - very peaceful. I figure most voters are looking for a different format for the presentation to more closely resemble an album or CD cover. Had the text been on the right, it could have been a wrap-around cover for a CD, though.

thinky and arty.

Wrong aspect ratio for an album cover, but I'll give it a 9 just the same. Reminds of me 60s/70s hippy music...

Beautiful. It's a little washed out, but the colors are nice. I don't really get the connection with the band name. I couldn't really see this as a cd cover either, but it's beautiful.
