Not completely happy with this one, but the best of the bunch this week and I finally want to submit in two consecutive weeks. So, here goes... be gentle! ;) I was supposed to take pictures of the sunrise (and I HATE getting up early), and the rain didn't help. Took thise pictures holding the umbrella in one hand, the camera in the other. No small feat in itself.

Thanks all for the kind votes. This photo did much better than I expected (and in my mind than it deserved, but I'm certainly not complaining). I'm especially thrilled that this is my first no 1s photo! :)

Something about the composition of this photo is a little bit awkward, with that building on the left. The lighting and colours are very nice though.

Nice curves. Would like to have seen the picture of the barn. very interesting

I love this picture!
Was it dawn or sunset?

Sky is sort of lifeless. Love the low perspective and the greens.

the road shines, nice.

I like the way the light is hitting the fence. This is a very peaceful/serene looking landscape.

great light! love the topiary. curve in road adds nice design element.

Very good rustic quality. I like the sun reflecting off the road, though it doesn't seem to flow right with the greenery.

Beauty... The light against the fence is incredible.
06/12/2002 08:39:00 PM
The lighting and composition here are awesome!
06/12/2002 05:23:00 PM
Nice landscape shot :)

Very strange lighting indeed. The coloration on the gravel/fence are a little out of place it seems with all the greens and browns.

a beautiful photo. The sunset in the driveway shows up really interestingly (extra red), but the sky is almost blank (hint of red/purple). This photo looks "natural", so I am guessing you didn't touch up the color, maybe it would have helped (just a touch more red). I don't know what else to suggest, overall, this is a very nice shot, but I keep looking at the washed out sky and wondering, was it THAT hazy? (maybe)

Pretty photo. Interesting building covered with the green in the background. Look like there is no back to the structure; would like to know more about it.

Nice area but the house is a bit dark. I would think that the details need to be a bit brighter
06/10/2002 09:06:00 PM
Very nice composition.
06/10/2002 08:10:00 PM
Not very creative but a good shot.
06/10/2002 05:26:00 PM
Lots of magenta..was that the color of the sky or the sun? Cool shot.
06/10/2002 03:28:00 PM
Beautiful use of light! I love the mood.
06/10/2002 03:02:00 PM
Hmm, what's that red light from?
06/10/2002 02:45:00 PM
i really like this
tho, the 'pinks' in the road and oranges on the fence aren't very self-explanatory and leave me wondering if they are the sunset, discoloration, or what. so a little distracting i guess.
but nice subject and composition
06/10/2002 12:00:00 PM
beautiful setting. I love the sunlight on the fence...but don't like how it's blurring the horizon.
