Good shot but a pity that the tractor is smack in the middle.

Congrats on this, and also your award for best sports photo at the press photo association awards this week.

Almost a forboding sky sweeping lazily across the barren plains and then this contraption as a contradistiction to the natural scenery. A very nice find with a wink of the surreal. Congratulations on your top 10 finish.

Wow! Love the different textures here with the soft clouds and the gritty hillside. My first reaction was that the tractor didn't really belong right in the center, but after looking at it for a while, I kind of like it there! :) Very well done!

I love this pic but it would have been better if the tractor was just a little off center. Great contrast and great capture with the clouds though. I'm giving you a 7 but would have score higher if the tractor was offset.

Cool one.

Pretty artistic and original! I would just crop out the top a little to get rid of the upper left dark bits but it's really minor. No points off :)

Good shot. I might have put the tractor on the right 1/3 of the shot, and tried to get more of the mountain. The clouds across the middle seem a little too dark to be natural.

Nice... i love the sky!

Great photo, the central placement of the tractor really works here, providing solitude and openness. The clouds look a little artifical, was there much tampering? Didn't detract from my score or thoughts on the photo

Technicals super, weather patterns nicely caught. Oh, if that vehicle was off to one side, rather than right in the middle of everything.

Oh, this one really strikes an appealing chord in me! I love the smoothness of it and the rolling look of that landscape. This is one picture where the perfectly centered tractor fits perfectly (instead of the off-centered rule of thirds thing). And the sepia tones work great. Awesome photo. Just awesome!

excellent sepia look really suits the shot...you can almost feel the weather

Love the bleak, empty feel with this shot. The focus and tones are very nice. congrats.

Dramatic and beautiful landscape, somehow centering the tractor like this improves the image, usually that´s a negativepoint..

WOW! What an intense sky. Developing this picture in black and white really gives you a feeling of being "Left Behind!"
