Awesome image. Looks very convincing. I love the color saturation on this one, and the sky is very Thomas Moore style.

I love it - kinda eery, but looks like a great place to hike and explore.
The subtle colors of the sky against the sharp contrasting colors fo the grounds really work well.

wonderful colour saturation

Does look like! Well done with this dramatic piece. I do however feel that the sharpening all around and around the edges especially, could have been kept under control for greater impact. It's a beauty nonetheless.

Good title. People understimate titles. Titles have to be well placed. Yours is to the point and I know exactly what you mean. very nice shot. Well done. 8

I like the title, it's apt. Processing is a little overdone though. A little oversharp in areas, with some artifacting. Might just be a little *light* for Mordor too ;)

you know, this is probably one of a very few times that a picture with no roads in it can appropriately have "road" in its title :)

great photo. this looks perfectly hellish. color treatment is well done.

Nice landscape and well documented. I went for a 9 but after a second look it's a 10.

That is pretty cool. Great color and atmosphere.

The first word that came in my mind the moment I saw this was 'pollution'.
It's a bit strange how the colors work but on the other hand that is one of the coolest things about it. Good photo. 8

Love to know how you did this one. For me the mist and the overlapping hills make this one. 7/10
