Location: Sonoita Arizona

A snapped shot at the entrance to the Sonoita Winery in Arizona. Converted to B&W using channel mixer - adjusted levels and increased contrast. USM and cropped. I know there will be a million beautiful landscapes but I hope this might actually do quite well. Either way, I think I will get a print for my wall!

Thanks for the great comments....my highest scoring photo to date. The horizon is a tad skewed....and is straightened for DPCPrints!

Great dramatic clouds. I like how the road and the building are placed out of center.

Well Done. MAybe burning (darken) the lower right would help focus attention and make this storm even stormier.

Image feels tilted, but sky is nice.

Just a little rotation and you would be golden. Nice shot of the sky and landscape though...it's a good capture.

The tilted horizon a bit disconcerting, but what a dramatic sky! And the foreground tones are really interesting as well. Rotate it, and this would be a killer shot!

Should really fix that tilted horizon line, other then that it is brilliant.

This is very nice, but I've commented a lot on this challenge, I think it could benefit from a little more contrast. The horizon is also tillted.

Great shadeing. I think this could have benefitted from rotating the image slightly to straighten the horizon.

Beautiful scenery and great detail you've gotten on ground... The only thing I don't like here is tilted horizon, everything else is just great...

Very nice landscape. I like the way the rode leads into the shot, and with such interesting curves. On the other hand, this is more difficult to appreciate in black and white because of the strong contrasts on the land and the sky make it appear very "busy".

Also, either the landscape is pitched right, or the camera was inadvertently tilted.

My favorite so far... 10

Beatufiul landscape shot. Lots of character. I like the road leading your eye from the foreground to the main subject. Nice shot.

Why can I never find dramatic scenes like this? A little Ansel Adams in it.

Beautiful! This makes a great B/W. The structure is small, but accents the landscape perfectly. 10
