From the Critique Club:
A beautiful and delicate image which meets the challenge head on. The sparse sprouts in the foreground give this image great delicasy. The composition is superb and satisfying and indeed it imparts a soothing feel. A lot of the beauty inherent in this image is due to the clouds masking the sun, however, here is where the image shies off perfection. This is another difficult shot to execute because we are going from the lower zone, skipping 7 and 8 and into the 9 and 10th.
This spells a bit of trouble for its final execution. Yet the photograph has enough quality to remain as is, like those times when the sun is suddenly blocked and we go through the transition of regaining the light value balance.
To conclude, the image meets the challenge, it is above average and its only defect os the ultra bright sky contrasting against a very subdued green. If I had no knowledge of curves, I would have certainly used levels to bring a little more luminosity to the shadowed area. Rated from 1 to 10 I give it 8+. Worked over with curves it can easily attain a 10. Nice work. dan

Great application for the challenge. Nice panoramic view. Too bad the foregroud is so dark. Proper lighting with intermitent clouds like that can be very tricky. Nice job.

Perfect use of deep DOF in this shot. I like the detail and composition here. The land seems a little dark though. Maybe adjusting levels may have helped?

Very nice take on the challenge. I love the soft colors mixed with the crisp focus throughout. Lovely clouds add depth to that beautiful sky, as well.
