A little too muted for my taste .. a shot more contrast would suit me better. But the composition is classic .. well seen.

Good seeing you again stormrider;) .

Your standard 8x10 crop was my first composition. I liked it, found it to be ok, but the more I stared at it the more I found all that extra grass on the bottom to be distracting to my tastes. So I decided to take a lawn mower to it :D .

Ok I thought I would play along too.....hope you don't mind, but I thought that perhaps a softer approach might give it an entirely different feel to it, and a slight variation on the tone.

Nice interpretation Jason - thanks for posting.

You've retained the light handed almost ethereal effect that I initially posted, but then gave it a little darker and toned saturation approaching Cyberpet's rendering. It's really amazing the pleasant and different effects that can be achieved with some images. ;) The border is a nice touch also.

I think the composition of your vertical is more interesting than the standard 8x10 crop. That sad looking walkway certainly has more character than the beat up lawn.
