So desolate and yet beautiful. Colors are amazing.

Death becomes her.....nice image.

Interesting image. My mind is trying to make sense of that orange wall where the sky should be and failing ;-) But I'm still intrigued by the image.

I remember seeing a scene like this in a photography magazine (perhaps the same place) - that image leaves me with the impression that this could stand more saturation.

Having said that, this is a very lovely image. 8 (voted earlier)

eye catching shot. the dead trees contrasted with colors of the ground and hill really takes this to higher level.

A very well known place but from a different perspective than the usual photos taken there.
02/21/2012 03:31:56 PM
Love the simplicity and color. Wish it were larger!
02/21/2012 03:31:04 PM

Great piece of abstract/fine art here. Looks digitally created in the thumbnail. Awesome photo.
02/19/2012 05:28:06 PM
Impressive backdrop for a starkly beautiful photograph.
02/17/2012 02:37:57 PM
Wow, so ominous looking.
02/16/2012 07:32:48 PM
Well, I hope this does well. It made me tilt my head about 30 degrees to the right to figure out what was going on here. For that you get yourself a 10 :-) And the image gets a fav :-)

This is almost surreal. It's hard to believe this is not digital art. Very awesome shot.
02/16/2012 09:04:51 AM
I have to look over and over again many times guessing what is that the background... texture or what. Sorry that's how we (my freind and me) look at this shot because never been to this place. This is really an extra ordinary amazing landscape once viewer notice what actually the background are. Great shot!!! 10

What an amazingly surreal landscape... the things of Dali's musings. Would love to see this.
02/14/2012 10:27:10 PM
This is so incredibly cool! I really want to see this place. It looks almost like a Dr. Seuss landscape. :) -9-
02/14/2012 10:06:07 AM
I've seen this on National Geographic, must be fab to see live.
02/14/2012 03:33:52 AM
What a great place to shoot. Lovely
02/14/2012 03:05:32 AM
So artsy...love the color and composition 9.
02/14/2012 01:39:16 AM
Harsh & stark. Beautifully captured.
02/13/2012 10:30:05 PM
Ah yes, I remember this well. Brilliant, Martian landscape
02/13/2012 09:43:38 PM
This is fantastic in the truest sense of the word. So unreal, but convincing. The composition yields high drama, warning of certain death.
02/13/2012 09:03:45 PM
Very striking!
02/13/2012 06:16:24 AM
What a wonderful image! For some reason I feel this is very similar to a famous photograph or painting. Just canít remember.
02/13/2012 12:10:28 AM
lovely shot
02/12/2012 09:37:50 PM
The same place as this National Geographic photo it looks like. Nice!!

Yes, love the PP.
02/11/2012 04:56:01 PM
Powerful image. Fascinating colors.
02/10/2012 08:24:12 PM
Very cool shot but hard to figure out.
02/10/2012 04:35:24 PM
Striking but I can't ifgure out what it is isit a dune?
02/10/2012 12:19:29 PM
Very interesting landscape. Much like a martian landscape I would envision.
02/10/2012 10:17:12 AM
i dont like the background, too distracting this would have worked much better for me if you could have set the trees against the sky.
02/10/2012 09:51:24 AM
my fav of the challenge so far

Gorgeous location. On my bucket list. Super angle of a common image. Great basic colours captured. Konrad?

Oh, the starkness is beautiful.
