It seems I didn't comment during voting, but I gave this a 10. It is exquisite, and something that would look great hanging on the wall. Congrats on 1X. I can never figure out what they will accept.

Hey Anita. Only just spotted this one. Congrats on a good score. You really did get some nice shots when you were in Balingup.

i was hoping this would finish higher but still had a solid placing.
considering a lot of emotive type shots don't do as well in free study type challenges, i'd say yours was definitely a success.

Fabulous image that is so artfully rendered. My entry might have been a fraction of a point higher in score, but your's is a far more successful. This would have finished well ahead of mine were it not for the DPC voters so hung up on the technical details focus that they fail to see the beauty captured here. Great job.

It's like a painting, nice.

This has a real painterly feel about it, I think without the use of too much post processing which is really refreshing to see. I really like it.

I set sail on the meadow's grassy waters.
Paddling towards the forest shore,
my trail leaves a wake behind me.
I look for the sun's beacon
shining through the mist
granting me safe passage to
shelter of the woodland.

Love how the mist shrouds the land and gives it a mystical, magical air. The trail and the man on it adds visual interest to this misty landscape. I saw the trail behind the man and I instantly thought of a wake a boat leaves behind. That then lead to the imagery of this lone man 'sailing' towards the forest beyond the meadow.

Beautifully emotive!

The processing has turned this shot into a piece of artwork. Nicely done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Love the processing of this one; the person almost looks like he doesn't fit in the scene; need a cow or horse, lol. (voted earlier)

Painterly. Wonderful rich tones. Lovely piece of art.

Soft contrast was the best choice, in the end. Excellent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/17/2012 02:41:18 PM
Cool. This could be a classic painting.

colors are a treat to my sore eyes (watching far too many perfectly lit images), so thanks.

edit for spelling.

i'd like ti see the subject moved to the lower left third point and move the horizon closer to the bottom third, i think it will give the image a bit more interest.

A very nice photo, the tones of green and yellow are wonderful and the overall feel of it is of peace and simplicity, in fact it looks like the walk I do eveyday, I haven't manged to capture it yet.

Nice shot, I like it a lot, the look really appeals to me, could be a book cover if you cropped of the sides of this image into a portrait oriented image.

02/10/2012 01:25:50 AM
Iím still blown away by this shot Anita. I hope you print this and hang it somewhere prominent. I canít vote on this but if I could it would probably be a double figure.
