I was really hoping this would take a ribbon. 4th is still great, but this is really gorgeous.

I think this was really the best out there, at least second place. It looks so beautifully textures like a nice pecil or pastel drawing. teh green is killer- just enough and balnced nicely by the blue. excellent.

Love the simplicity and blurriness of this. It's probably not messy enough for some, but I love it. 10 from me.

Very nice abstract. Still a bit of texture in the grasses, and ghosts of them reaching into the sky.

Wonderful color and the blur adds a gentle softness that makes this picture stand out. Meets the challenge with grace and evokes feelings of peace. Helps me feel a connection to nature.

I like how you could probably flip this upside down and it would still be a "grasses" type photo

If I were to guess, I'd say Andre. This is wonderful.

03/12/2008 11:58:29 AM
very wispy and painterly... I'd like to see a series of these as huge prints.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2008 11:13:42 AM
I think this is a great shot. It's simple because there are only 2 main colors, but there is enough variety to keep it busy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
