After the challenge...
Thanks for the great score and the good comments... it did better than I expected. I took this as a long exposure to capture the motion of the water and the interesting colors in the predawn light. About the comments of there being nothing at the end of the walkway, actually the walkway goes on beyond the scope of the picture and the house go on... the image I wanted to convey is one of it just going on & on. The original image was a bit dark, so it was lightened. This is just slightly cropped, I framed it to exclude the sky, because the sky was too bright & would appear too "blown out". I took some other shots with the sky in it, but the sky seemed a bit of a distraction, cloudless & boring. I could have "photoshopped" it, but this image was more what I wanted.

The location is in Altamira - Brazil, crossroads of the TransAmazon highway & the Xingu River.

I absolutely love this image. It's so rewarding to examine closely, there's so much in it. I wonder, did you crop at the top? I feel like you may have gone a hair too far, if so... I feel it would be stronger if the rooflines right and elgt weren't quite so close to the edge of the frame.

Congrats on a top 10 finish. I like how the water and the wood ramp both lead your eyes into the picture.

Nice to see the boardwalk has been finished off!
Works just as well as the "vanishing point" entry..in fact I like this softer approach slightly more.
Assuming this is yours Bud?

I find this to be a very emotive picture. I'm not even sure I have the words to say how much I like it....how well I think it fits this challenge. Great shot...the perspective is amazing.

Maybe if you formatted the shot in a portrait composition it would be better, but I feel like the path is drawing my eyes, but when I get to the end, there isn't anything to look at, it kinda stops in the top extremity of the frame and I find the buildings to the right too dark to hold my attention.

I get the feeling that I am missing something - I think there may be a bit too much cropped from the top of the image. The top of the structure on the right is missing and I want the walkway and the stream to take me somewhere and can't find it - so I am left hanging.

Very nice leading line. I like the dim twighlight tones. The shimmery water is great.
