Post challenge: Wow, thanks everyone for the great comments during and after the challenge! I came home tonight to find out about the events concerning this challenge and feel sorry for alithenake, Larus and yakatme: you all were amongst my favourite photos of this challenge...

Photographic details: As Azrifel guessed, this was shot in an area north of Amsterdam called The Beemster. Me and my girlfriend were visiting a friend of hers and I knew about this road, so when returning in the afternoon, we stopped to snap some pictures. There was a nice blue sky which I couldn't really maintain in post editing, I would have liked to have more gradient or maybe some clouds. But hey, wow, a red...

Post processing: lots of colour adjustments (see above), no USM, no NI ;-)

Thanks all for taking the time to vote and comment!

this looks a lot like a road I've seen in some car commercials. great perspective & processing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2006 11:37:12 PM
Great framing here. Good luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.

beautiful composition..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2006 09:29:33 PM
I really like the symmetry in this shot. One of the better ones in the challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2006 05:28:51 PM
My top pick for this challenge and only 10. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2006 01:31:23 PM
Wow. A powerful composition. I absolutely love it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2006 11:58:41 AM
great shot love the composition and variety of values
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2006 11:29:32 PM
This is so boring. Terrible shot. It doesn't have any sense of symmetry or balance to it. And the DOF is pathetic....

10. Congrats on the ribbon forthcoming. In the least, this one deserves it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2006 09:49:33 PM
Just simply cool! A very nice photo.

01/22/2006 04:53:54 PM
8-really like this shot; my favorite so far in this challenge. Might I suggest a crop on the left and right to just outside the trunks of the first trees?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2006 03:54:56 PM
I just love this pic..the symmetry, the colours, title...everything. congrats
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2006 12:47:12 PM
Great composition!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2006 11:03:19 AM
I really like this, but IMO I would have preferred a higher crop, and more negative space at top. A nice job, and good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2006 12:00:06 PM
nice one
the b&w and the symmetry (nice rime,eh ;P) work really well here
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2006 08:12:38 AM
The avenue of decidious trees really impact this monotone image. I also love the perspective lines which draws one eyes right to the centre of the horizon.....This is brillant.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 06:55:02 PM
This is perhaps my favorite photograph of the competition. Excellent composition, perspective, and setting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 06:53:50 PM
Almost like a mirror, good find. I like the b&w presentation. I know it is toned, but I still call that b&w.

Moet bijna Nederlands zijn, zo'n kaarsrechte weg in een polderlandschap met van die netjes geplantte bomen. Maar de schuur is de doorslaggevende factor. Geen idee waar het is, ik heb dit soort wegen gezien in de Wieringermeer, de Beemster en in de buurt van Mijdrecht.
Na het beoordelen van een stuk of 80 entries tot nog toe, één van de betere inzendingen.

Well done.

Nice use of sepia and vanishing point.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 05:42:34 PM
Very unique for a "road between the trees" photo. I like it very much!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 11:55:32 AM
I wonder if this would be better cropped closer to the trees... as to me the fields are distracting and draw my eyes away.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 07:35:56 AM
Would have been really good if you'd cropped the edges, both sides of the road are distracting, otherwise great shot, the channelling of the trees is very effecive. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 11:48:53 PM
NICE PHOTO.
I would have walked closer to the trees so the trunks frame the road. I like the sepia effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 10:10:12 PM
looks like you have a long way to go...nice indeed
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 10:01:15 PM
Beautiful lines and symmetry.

01/18/2006 05:03:38 PM
The symmetry of the photo is beautiful and it makes the entire scene look peaceful. overall great shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 04:33:17 PM
Wow. This photo is tremendous. The impact from first view packs a whallop.
Excellent tones and composition. The vanishing point draws you right into it. A definite 10!
