Default Please critique my scenic

So we went on some back roads today on our way back from a small Texas town. This scene caught my eye so I pulled over and took 5 angles and this was my favorite. I gave the edges a little ocean ripple filter for more of a painting feeling.

Richard,

This is very rich with sienna against blue sky. There's one sprig of a branch with spikes/berries that mimics the steel wire of the fence. I like that detail.

I'd clone out the fragment of wire orphaned in the upper right corner. The name on the bottom doesn't need to be so large. Your picture is not better protected this way, it just distracts. Try a version with the text just about 2-4 cm wide, max. More important is to add your notice and rights usage to hte IPTC code. You can do this by using FILE -INFO in Photoshop.

Asher
