Wow. I thought for sure this was a mid fiver at best. Midday sun and a stereotypical postcard shot of the Tarrant County courthouse. I suppose I did post process it a bit (a lot) more than the normal postcard pic.

Another from-the-saddle shot taken while cycling about town with relatively cheap gear. (Rebel T2i, 18-135 kit lens and a '92 Schwinn Crosscut)

Stopped. The moving shots are taken using my Powershot S90 and usually have a natural tilt to them from holding the camera down in front of my pedal.

What a scene, wonderful rhythm and white sky. With this framing I don't think you needed the strong vignette. Congrats on the ribbon!

Nice image, although a touch too dark in the shadows for me or my monitor.

Love these tones, I've used this before; kicking myself I didn't use it this time around, top 3 for me, in this mostly boring challenge to vote on.
