Judge's Comments: I have a strong emotional response to this work, which is all about conveying the feeling of a place, the mood it evokes, rather than giving a detailed representation. With color loosely applied in a textural way and lovely soft edges, there's a dream-like quality which enhances this effect. Enjoy the gorgeous detail of reflected cloud in the very effective lead-in of the stream, and the horizon line slightly sloping and broken by the foreground tree nice touches. - Kate Palmer
