I remember being struck by this one the first time around. It is such a lovely display of curves and I like the high contrast. Great work in all ways.

I like the patterns and textures that is created by the fields and road. This is a good image overall.

What a soothing pattern and what a nice time to bring out the "S" curve.
Congratulations on your top 10 finish.

Challenge: SHADOWS III
Description: Creatively capture a shadow

Advanced Edit
Farm Zen
Fit: Clearly meets the challenge 1

Aesthetics: An exceptional composition/exceptional aesthetics 3
I really like the composition here with clever use of the shadows to highlight the curves
Technical: Technically OK 1
Just feel that the shadows need a lot more detail around the edges of the image
Wow: Slaps you in face 3
Simple but very effective
Total Score = 8

I like this a lot. Did you just happen upon this? Or did you plan to be there at the right time? Very nice.

Beautifully executed ... the tones and colour are perfect and the overall effect is to suggest something other than what it actually is. I suppose that's more farm abstract than zen, but the suggestion of those raked sand zen gardens is undeniable. 8.

I like the saturation and the sinuous lines. I like the way the black is repeated at the edges, Seems a bit over sharpened, but I like it;)

  Photographer found comment helpful.

This so badly wants a big red tractor, just at the left forefront, to really finish it off. Still, a lovely study of the texture of the field, with great shadows.

Great interpretation of what shadows are, beautiful!
