    Good entry, but a bit too dark.

    Many thanks to Robert Lavker and others for their encouraging and perceptive comments. While some might have preferred a brighter, cheerier scene, I wanted to capture the feeling of a "cold, rainy day" as referenced in the song. I note also that this image seems sensitive to slight variations in monitor calibration and definitely looks better on one of mine than the other.

AvanBroek - this is in the village of Saint-Martin-de-Vers, in the Lot department of southwest France, where we've had quite a few cold, rainy days lately.

    Depressingly dark, dreary and dingy, gives a certain effect. Would be enhanced by a ray of sunshine somewhere, perhaps from the top right corner.

    The composition is superb, and I really like the texture that you have been able to pull out of the photo, but I don't care for the finish, which seems to have taken some of the life out of the scene.

    Nice composition, but very dark.

    This one great photo. It makes me think of The Weight, by The Band - optimistic against the odds.

    Really great shot, good find and well composed. The color treatment is very effective. There's some strangeness going on in the trees.

    Well planned and executed but it appears to be artificially darkened and flat. I think a brighter shade would have given a better dof. The composition is excellent.

    I love this, but just wish it had a little more contrast so that it didn't look so flat.

    Every once in a while there is an image in these competitions that stands out from all the rest. This is it. What a great mood image. Perfect for the competition. My #1.
