I was just going through the archives & saw this; It's beautiful!The foreground almost looks like the Great Wall of China.

I enjoyed reading all the comments on your photo. I see that I'm not the only one that thought it was the Blue Ridge Parkway! Lots of people think this is a road they know so it's a great choice... Congratulations on your win!

Is this road for real? I wouldn't want to drive it. Excellent shot.
04/14/2002 03:57:00 PM
What a great, dreamy subject!
04/14/2002 02:45:00 PM
Nice job ... looks like a section of the Blue Ridge Parkway ... if not, still a good representation of curves!
04/14/2002 12:20:00 PM
Where is this? I love the image it makes me dizzy.
04/14/2002 10:44:00 AM
Wide depth of field works nicely for this shot. The sharpness works well here also. Looks like you were at the limit of your cameras, and my monitors, resolution to resolve the lines on the road. Have you tried printing it? Just enough background to make the road interesting, putting it in context. Good job.
04/13/2002 02:38:00 PM
Wow, what a view of this great road. Wish I had a sports car. Great job finding this place.
04/12/2002 09:42:00 PM
i think ive been on this road. hmmm
04/12/2002 02:02:00 PM
Roads seamed real easy for this challenge but your photo is the exception. I really like it. I wonder what it would look like at night, wet, and with a full moon shining on it.
04/12/2002 02:02:00 PM
Nice shot. Where was this taken? Looks like a place I know in the Columbia River Gorge...
04/11/2002 04:23:00 PM
Very nice---in the top three.
04/11/2002 03:43:00 PM
Amazing. If only they had roads like this where I live. Nice framing job.
04/11/2002 12:48:00 PM
Isn't it frustrating when the weather isn't making things easy for you? I want tosee this on a sunny day!
04/11/2002 11:05:00 AM
cool road ... i wanna drive on it
04/11/2002 10:56:00 AM
BTW. This is one of only two photos that i gave a ten. Love it.
04/11/2002 07:15:00 AM
You should scout sites for movies!
04/11/2002 01:10:00 AM
Great photo, and probably my favorite curves of the challenge.
04/10/2002 03:50:00 PM
Now THAT's curve!
04/10/2002 02:29:00 PM
Now I need to go for a ride...

Nice shot, though.
04/10/2002 10:29:00 AM
What a great road! Cropping up 10% from the bottom would make a nicer comp, and having a drunk buddy knock over those signs would make it perfect (they're not all that pretty, and show that the pic needs to be rotated a degree or two CCW).
04/09/2002 10:17:00 PM
Reminds me of SR 178 up the Kern Canyon in California. Nice angle on the curve.
04/09/2002 08:45:00 PM
now this is a curvy road! Great shot. Good eye.
04/09/2002 05:11:00 PM
Perfect interpretation of the challenge theme.
04/09/2002 02:52:00 PM
Fantastic location! Looks like something out of a car advert.
04/09/2002 11:20:00 AM
great shot. you found a good stretch of road! i would have liked to see the crop cut off closer to the road at the top.
04/09/2002 09:59:00 AM
I love this shot! The only thing I would have done different is crop the bottom stones out. But still a wonderful shot!
04/09/2002 09:59:00 AM
Very cool shot. I like how this goes on and on...
04/09/2002 09:50:00 AM
Excellent, crisp focus, sharp color, but where's the red car?
04/09/2002 07:28:00 AM
woa! glad I don't have to drive on that! I like the soft feel to the colors.
04/09/2002 06:01:00 AM
wow, I'm car sick already! ;)
04/08/2002 09:08:00 PM
great focus and composition,
04/08/2002 07:12:00 PM
cool road, cool shot.
04/08/2002 05:16:00 PM
04/08/2002 04:34:00 PM
terrific subject for challenge, well grabbed shot
04/08/2002 03:53:00 PM
This is a great shot.
04/08/2002 03:40:00 PM
The road markings really help the eye follow up the image, and the wall being a different shape curve nicely offsets the road.
04/08/2002 02:55:00 PM
nice shot! I gave you an 8 (would have been nine with a hitch-hiker in there somewhere).
04/08/2002 12:36:00 PM
A shot like this being entered was inevitable, despite the 'predictability' it's a great photo, very well framed.
04/08/2002 11:27:00 AM
This is a great photo. Where is this?
04/08/2002 10:40:00 AM
Nicely done, truly captures the topic
04/08/2002 09:42:00 AM
I like this photo... If i'm not mistaken, this is one of my favorite motorcycle rides... Is this along the blue ridge parkway in North Carolina? This particular perspective is really nice in the fall... About the 2nd week of October, these leaves are in full color. This is the nicest example of road curves I have seen lately :)
04/08/2002 09:01:00 AM
really nice!
04/08/2002 08:41:00 AM
You can't help but look at this entry and see curves. Great picture.
04/08/2002 08:24:00 AM
04/08/2002 07:47:00 AM
This is the picture I wanted to take but I didn't want to drive up the coast to Santa Barbara. Looks like Yosemite. Great composition.
04/08/2002 07:14:00 AM
Seen stuff like this a billion times in stock photo books. Boring.
04/08/2002 06:30:00 AM
Cool section of road - get my car!
04/08/2002 01:16:00 AM
What a find! Well done.
04/08/2002 12:45:00 AM
This is an awesome picture... I love it!
