Another shot from the saddle. Spending a Saturday afternoon riding around on my bike with the camera. A gravel trail along the Trinity river, just under the cliff that downtown Fort Worth sits on top of, overlooking the river.

I think this is pretty good, but probably falls short of the DPC definition of "amazing". I'm going to figure it might be good for a mid to high 5. Here's the zoomed out scene:

Congratulations on the ribbon, Steve. The whole scene is nice, but the flavour of your entry altogether different and more charming. What a great place to go riding.

Lovely view. Somehow the processing and whole scene remind me of some of the landscape images that our long lost DPC friend 31_F.gif Ivory was posting a few years ago.
It's a good find, a nice scene, and treated nicely in processing too. Congrats on the ribbon!

Lovely impressionistic scene that works wonders with blur and leading lines. It's joyful and full of promise. Who wouldn't take this adventure? I'll put it in my favorites to gaze at in the winter.
