Your photo is definately of a right angle when you look at it but the landscaping dominates the photo and makes it hard to notice at first.

You have a very hazy photo which it is likely is a case of weather conditions but you can try correcting it by adjusting the contrast and brightness some as well as more color saturation and you can over come some of the haze. Also if you are able to set your whitebalance on your camera adjust to to bring out more gold it will overpower the hazy gray and blue tones some.

It isn't a bad photo just a little weak for this particular challenge. Try to brighten it up a little and it will be more appealling.

It took me a little while, but I figured out what the title was referring to. This is a neat idea, but unfortunatly my focus is drawn up to the unlevel horizon, and not down to the roadway. I think if you had perhaps cropped off the top and if possible zoomed in more on the roadway, this would have worked better.

A bit more contrast would have helped...

Composition is nice. Colors are washed out. Bad contrast. Sunny days usually causes this.Set your aperture lower and less light will enter your camera giving it more depth. The shadows will become darker giving a more 3d look. Living in San Francisco I have to play with my settings a lot because of the bad sunlight.

Color is a bit flat. You might want to push the saturation levels a bit.

I have seen lots of curves like this one. Interesting but the rocks and bare spots on the hill distracted me from the right angle.

A nice view but look under saturated to me

not the rightest angle ever, but enough to meet the challenge. only the subject, if the road is the subject, isn't especially visible, without the title, and knowing the challenge, i might not catch on. could use a little more wow, maybe catching it at the right time of day (colorful sky) would make it more exciting.
