  1. this is so unique…mysterious yet not in the dramatic way…just in a serene artistic way. Absolutely love the texture you used on it combined with your processing. Of course…the composition makes the shot so amazing to begin with. What a long road…the tallness of the trees competes with the road’s length in a great way.

    2 thumbs up! 🙂

  2. It’s so soft, it’s like a painting – I love it!

    I’m entranced by the lines – the straight trees, the path, the farm field in the distance. You’ve composed this perfectly. And the tones and texture of the processing are lovely.

    Mysterious. Beautiful. Dreamy.

    Love the processing and texture.

    This is very well done, Jen; texture works very well here. Strongest point for me is the very soft “edge” between the textured sky and the line of trees, not only in the soft edge itself but also in terms of color.

    Winner, definitely.
