I would like this more if it had less sharpening and wasn't as noisy.

Wny in the world would this photo need validating... unless someone saw a similar photo somewhere else on the web. Nice shot. Interesting use of cool greens with warm blue sky.

Very little definition in the green areas - possibly because of exaggerated sharpening? It's become massively pixelated at the 1:1 resolution - there is no (or at least little) progression between pixels. Quite like the effect actually, though it seems in such contrast to the effect on the sky (I'm sure it's the same thing, but its impact in different areas is weird). Two problems for this challenge: the effect seems more about processing than about photography, and it doesn't strike as a deep dof image (though you aren't losing marks for the latter - I just think you will from others). I like the blankness of the image, of the composition, but for my enthusiasm would like to see more gentlness to the work on the greenery. 7

re-reading comment I haven't mentioned how striking this image is. But I have now.

Great shapes and textures throughout. The detail in the foliage and clouds is fantastic. The only thing I found distracting in this shot is the apparent graininess, especially in the sky.

what a beautiful shot. It looks a bit oversharpened, though.

just a tinge too sharp.

I'm not sure about this one. The clouds look fantastic, but somehow the lighting relationships don't fit. The trees seem too dark for the brightness of the sky.
