Congrats on your 6th place entry, Jamie, a very nice addition to your highest scoring photos! I love the way you handled the darks and lights and the detail is impeccable.

Have you ever thought about shooting real estate listings? ;-)

Sixth place! Pretty good! Guess you did the sky right lol. I personally like the light shining on the homes - that makes it look very pretty! Congrats on a good job!

This photo has wonderful light.. the sky is dramatic - the shadows fortelling a storm indeed.. wonderful pp - great colors - really like how you left the strip of lighter pavement in the forground with the patch of green in the right corner.. well done.

Splendid catching the light like that and nailing the exposure. I only suggest a cropp off the bottom, right up to where the tips of the grass end of the patch of grass on the right. Without the sliver of bright on the bottom I find my eye lingers around the shot more and the lighting is more impactful.

This does it for me: the strange world of mix-and-match near-identical homes, and everything built for the car.

The line of the shadows is perfect to emphasize the colors of the left part of the street and keep the eyes moving smoothly through the pictures. Great job capturing the uniformity of the suburbs while keeping it interesting!

Nice image - Like the lighting and colours of this. Composition is a little boring and I think cropping off the grass from the right tightens the overall feel of this and concentrates our eyes to the homes rather than to the bottom of the frame which is light and competing for our attention and dragging our eye down and out of the frame.

This stands out in all of the entries. Wonderful image as it depicts the cookie-cutter type of houses in the suburbs!

Good take on the challenge. Like the darkness over the light facades.
