Can see the difficult in obtaining this shot.

beautiful 8

Nice lighting effects -- I bet this looked even better before resampling...

The high contrast of this image is hard on my eyes.

I thought this was really cool, but.. hmm.. kinda breaching the whole road thing? I dunno. But i love the green!

This one is pretty neat. Just a bit too dark for my taste, but a very nice idea.

This image has potential. It doesn't seem as though it was colour corrected (the road is very difficult to see). The image lacks detail.

Great shot!
06/11/2002 11:27:00 AM
Wow, beautiful! The contrast is just amazing, and I'm a sucker for such wonderful greens. Very simple, but very impressive!

The bright lighting on the front tree seems inconsistant to me. Also not a big fan of oof items in the foreground. I do however, like the faint white line along the road.
06/11/2002 03:39:00 AM
too bright in the upper left...
06/10/2002 11:24:00 PM
I love this. Great contrast of light and dark.
06/10/2002 10:52:00 PM
the would be good if a road was not running through it.
06/10/2002 09:29:00 PM
Almost for me. Interesting lighting and composition - but "on the road"? What did I miss? Also,the foreground is a little blown out for me.

Sort of neat but too dark
06/10/2002 07:48:00 PM
Pretty cool... I like the way the trees appear out of nowhere
06/10/2002 05:43:00 PM
Wow, wow, wow, O.K. I thought I had seen the winner previously, but I was wrong, here it is! Night shots are tricky, did you mean to have softer focus on the first tree? (Could cost you with other voters) Too bad you couldn't "spot edit" the white line. Really cool look, but the more I look at tree #1, it does bug me. #1 best idea!
Photo 8 Creativity 10 ++++ Road 8 total 9

I'm not to keen on the title, and I initially didn't like the photo much, either, but it's growning on me. A little bit too much contrast between light and dark.
06/10/2002 03:50:00 PM
Nice composition, good night shot.
06/10/2002 02:15:00 PM
the lighting on the trees is very eerie. I like it.
06/10/2002 01:09:00 PM
Weird that they light those trees like that. Wish I could see more of the road, but that may just be my monitor.

You did a great photo to make the ground and the background disappear! It is really amazing! Floating trees and lights that lead to the heaven.
Great Shot! Great Title!
Yet the photo can be even better if the trees behind are each one higher than the other. I rated you 9!
06/10/2002 11:46:00 AM
I like this one...somethings a little off though. The front leaves are out of focus. Maybe more light's needed on the road. I'm not sure.

Definitely the best choice from the seletion, looks great.
06/10/2002 04:59:00 AM
I cant really see the road too well except for a faint white line, which would have went better with the title If I could see the trees as well as the road.
06/10/2002 01:01:00 AM
This is a neat shot indeed, but the road is quite hard to detect... I believe that shooting this particular image a little closer to dusk would have allowed the roadway to show up a little more and improve the overall impact of the 'on the road' concept... nice shot, none-the-less... :)
