Re: Nov 09 Contest Votes

As usual this was really hard to judge, great job everyone.
1. Ruzzez - Nice and simple, also good depth
2. CFarr - I like the softer shades they seem a little less intense
3. Lorraine - Nice and simple, good colors
4. Philbach - Very realistic leaves on the path.
5. designcafe - I really like the color of the tree on the right, nice leaves on the path, but I think I see cloning trails.
Honorable Mention:
Cupcake - I like the darker look, but a little too much like a painting.
Moontje - Nice variation, good over all colors, but I see a lot of artifacts.

Re: Nov 09 Contest Votes

1. Phil Bach – Beautiful work with the fallen leaves – they’re not overdone and look very realistic. Lovely muted colors on the trees and the vine on the building.

2. swarbees – I like the overall golden tones and the vibrant colors of the individual trees.

3. Ruzzez – Nice work on the trees colors, the reflections in the stream and the fallen leaves. I especially like how you brought out the water that is flowing over the wheel of the mill.

4. designcafe -- Great colors on the trees and excellent work with the fallen leaves. The colors of vine on the building are very good as well.

5. CFarr – Nice work on the individual tree colors.

Everyone’s work is excellent, and it was very difficult to narrow the entries down to just five.

Re: Nov 09 Contest Votes

Extremely difficult for me on this one. Would say barely 5 points difference between the ones that I chose. Kudos to you all.

Bigdawgz - Like the grounded leaves
CathyH - Ditto
Lorraine - Colorful trees; I like it

Re: Nov 09 Contest Votes

Each and every image deserves an October or November page in a calendar.
Limiting the field to 5 was difficult. Here are my choices:

1) swarbees... an overall richness of color
2) leaves on roof
3) bigdawgzf...golden colors & leaves in water
4) lkroll the reds!
5) CathyH...strong colors & leaves on ground
