Your photo represents our life path too!!

All roads are not full of roses. Humps and hurdles are way of life - yeah?

This photo ignites lot of thoughts in my mind.

Good work. Keep it up !!!

My original is at home, but I believe my aperture was 4.0. I'd have to check.

Nice descending horizon line. Composition is very fine. Contrast of the surface could have been a little better.

I have had comments where people told me that a picture would be better in color. I had the original and could easily disagree. I don't like this one in b and w but I don't have the original.
