Okay, actually my sister's front yard. I live about 150 yds left of this, so my view is a bit different. Overlooking Canton NC

That bench looks like it has seen better days. Very nice view, though. I like the colors of the shot and the composition.

Nice scene but the green seems oversaturated.

A very relaxing and attractive shot. Very similar to last weeks blue ribbon. I have high hopes for you. As far as advanced digital editing goes, the blown out whites and the absolute dead gray/blue tones in the sky need repaired. I would select out the entire sky, and paint in a blue one with some happy white clouds. While the broken bench adds character to the scene, it doesn't help me to feel like I want to sit there to enjoy this wonderful overlook. And since I'm assuming that you have included the bench to create exactly that emotion, you should fix the bench. Take out the broken board, and patch in a replacement. Very nice image. 9

Its a very cool shot, but I would have moved the broken slat so it was in line with the others. Maybe thats a bit picky, but its the very first thing I noticed...Good luck, it is a great photo.

So serene, nice find. I love the old board lying on the seat. Sky a bit hot.
