nice use of leading lines and getting details in the shadows and highlights. Congratulations on a top ten finish.

I like the border for web display. Can imagine others who don't. The brightness is on the ruin not the road, but I like the image overall.

Beautiful image, my #1 pick! I like that your road leads the viewer to that interesting old building.

I want this photo to win the Blue: the subject matter is perfect for the challenge and the lighting is awesome. 10

Too bad that there isnt shadow details on this road. Its all shaded except at the ruines.

More time getting more out of/in to the image and less on the border would have benefited this. It's a beautiful shot that could have really popped with some processing to get more details in the foreground and more colour in the mid and background. The border doesn't work for me, and I'm not one that usually has a problem with borders.

Love the border, it works (others might bag you but). Photo composition is great. Meets the challenge without being boring. Road leads to an interesting topic. Light is great, road in shadow, ruins in light.
A touch of green maybe to boost the trees/hills perhaps???
Great submission though

I am a huge fan of ancient architecture, and the small building near the back gives this photo the appearance of an unfrequented area.

I usually don't notice borders, but this is overly elaborate and takes away a lot of image area that could've added to the impact of the shot.
