Pre-challenge notes:
I'm not even gonna guess how this will do. Freestudy's are always tough. For a handheld shot at the ISO and shutter speed I was at, I think it's pretty darn good.

Post challenge notes:
Well, not a bad showing. I'm not unhappy. The voting curve is heavier on the high side, so that's good. I didn't quite hit the "broad appeal" on this one though.

A lovely collection of old wood - I like the colors, the angles. Good light for this shot.

It looks like it could be sharper.

This has stopped me slightly, but I don't know why. Your colour treatment, perhaps. can't say there's any immediate appeal in the composition, nor the light .. but there's something. I shall have to return to this one.
