Challenge: Sunrise/Sunset in Black and White (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2012
Camera: Nikon D700

This is my first official edited image from the Mojave, and in fact, one of the last images of my first stay there.

save for web.

I'm actually rather surprised (and pleased) that this finished as well as it did. I knew I was taking a huge risk entering such an "unconventional" image, especially by cutting out the sun. But this sang to me, and I'm glad to see it did to others. Thanks so much for the votes and comments. Lens flares RULE!

Its a shame the top of the mountains have been cropped. Really nice flare and leading line.

Don't particularly like the glare/reflections from the sun. The road is very interesting and well detailed... but the sunrise/sunset is cropped out of the shot.

Awesome flare - love the way the rays are spilling down from the hills.

Love it. The glare and road go well - fell like I should be on it

Nice composition, but the lens flare detracts IMO. Sometimes holding your hat or hand just above the lens to block the flare works.
