Cold day in Boise, Idaho. Tried a couple of different shots. Found a backroad that wasn't well-traveled. Used a tripod. Not much different from the original but this time I played with brightness>contrast>sharpen>smoothen and then cropped and saved for the challenge. Still don't know how to put a border :)

Beautiful shot... Like dahkota, I have to admit that I underrated it during the challenge as well. I should have scored it at least a 7-8. The slightly tilted horizon is a tad distracting (not quite enough tilt to come across as an artistic choice IMHO), but otherwise awesome job. Keep up the good work!

This is one of those images you come back to and like more each time. I hate to say, in original voting I gave this a 6. Today I would give it an 8 or 9. I get both a sense of futility and hope. And dedication. Oh so dedicated. The toning is excellent, composition well done.

Thank you for the compliment. It is actually a very clean road that is maintained about once a month by some of the locals. :)

The concept of this one is wonderful. Felt it needed more contrast, perhaps some more saturation, and it was a bit fuzzy. Nice idea, though.

Very interesting composition, the horizon is slightly tilted which is distracting. Not sure I like the mono-tone or the grain.

I love the grainyness of this

Beautiful color and great stance. I love the endless look of the road and the sky is perfect. I only wish that the vanishing point was either centered or totally off to the side, instead of in the middle of the two. It would have also been a little better if hte horizon was straight. Good title.
