This community has a unique demographic. I stumbled on this amazing garden with these weathered prayer flags. Made me feel very far from civilization.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

What an interesting shot! I like the colors, they don't overwhelm you and add just a touch of life to the shot, as well as the wind blowing the flags around. Very nice.

I'm not so sure about the crop though. Lots of things calling for my attention, the pole on the right, the tree on the left..... Taking out my magic envelopes and taking both of those elements out of the shot made a huge difference in the lines and the flow of the overall picture. It really helped me focus on the flags and the lines.

Overall a great effort and as for as being a rural landscape, things in the air are just as much a part of our landscape and world as the things on the ground and the horizon. Well done and good luck in future challenges.

They look interesteing. I find that little bit of tree on the left distracting. I wonder how this would look with it cropped completely out?
