This photo was taken on a trip to the Australian Outback in 2002. The dishes are part of a solar collection array making electricity for the opal mining town of White Cliffs, NSW.

The title is a play on words from what I am in the Australian Army.

Thanks for everybody's comments. I have upgraded to a DSLR and so far the results are nothing like this image. I am climbing a VERY steep learning curve. Thanks again

Love the colors and symmetry here. It's nice of that mining town to line those all up so they are such a striking image for you!

That white reflection in the bottom of the dishes is what I love best about this - good work seeing this amazing shot and then getting it!

8 - Like this. Difficult, but an adjustment of the perspective 'somehow', trying to get the lines a little more balanced (horizon, fencing, satellite dishes) may have given this a bit more of an 'edge' and may have made this even better in my opinion. Depends what you had to work with too, of course.

Beautiful clear colors, sharp image that is. The reflection on the first plate is also good, opens some new dimensions. Good work! :-)
