Let me add my congratulations to the list posted,
How I got to find this shot, was during my looking over of my portfolio. I noticed that you were kind enough to congratulate me on my placement (means a lot for a newcomer).
I was pleasantly surprised to see you portfolio and hope that one day I can achieve such stunning images myself.
Congratulations again on your blue,
Bernie

Thanks for the congrats on my pic. I love this picture. The muted tones are still strong but make it look otherworldly. The detail is fantastic. I would love to know how you achieved this look--I want to try it sometime. Beautiful shot.

Awesome! I love the wide-angle distortion and the beautiful dynamic sky. I love the strong muted colors as well, they really lend a feeling of desolation.

The cable from these spools certainly extended the reach of civilization but there is not much sign of it here. A lot more than the spools is stationary. 10

Pretty sky! So pretty that it pulls my eyes away from the reels. I think if you play with this some to make the reels stand out it would be more effective.
