    I love the lighting in this photo! The contrast of the luminous gold flowers with the dark bleak forest is splendid. I absolutely love how the low key lighting paints portions of this scene really drawing me into this image. I tried to come up with something I might do differently, but I found none. It truly is one of my favorite shots that I've seen here!

    I love how the area around the barn is slightly lighter than the rest; it seems to draw more attention to the subject. Did you dodge that in PS or was it natural?

    This is an extraordinary capture. First of all, I like how it's almost a panoramic shot - did you crop it some? If so, leave it as it is. It sucks you right into the scene from the word go, no messing.

    Also, the colours are exquisite. From the yellows in the foreground drawing you in, to the warmth of the greens and the reds/browns on the barn.

    The whole shot feels very "fairy's in the glen" - almost magical. Great work. I personally can't see anything that needs doing to it.

    extraordinary shot! the flowers (marigolds?) or whatever they are are so brilliant compared to the rest of the photo, it looks photoshopped in or at least burned & dodged.

    Daring, tight panoramic crop is perfect for this well seen, wonderfully saturated and moody shot. (Now THAT was concise...).

    Great job.

    This picture crosses over from a photo into art IMO. Excellent. It's beyond me to critique.
