I had to crank up the JPG compression in this one, and some of the finer detail was lost. It still wouldn't have won me any ribbons, but I was happy to hear about the change to the file size limitations all the same. As far as the composition, I wasn't happy with the placement of the sun in this.

As an aside, the red flare is actually a design flaw in the DP1 sensor; it's less pronounced in the newer Sigma compacts.

Scored about where I expected. I'm happy to break a five these days.

Very nice shot. It has a certain quality I like a lot. The twinkling flash of sunlight through the foliage, the jet trails in the sky, the topsy turvy angle and the lovely pastel colors all make this come together for me.

I like how you have caught the left hand side with the tree at a diagonal and all the sunlight shining through it. I think the airplane trail kind of ruins the natural effect of the rest of the image.
