Looks like how Mars might look if it was inhabited. Really nice color on this one, and I love the haze. Makes it look very unearthly.

Wow, cool location. I wish more of the front of the road was in the composition but nicely done.

Did you take it from the car through the window? If so I think it would be better to pull over and step out to take it. A bit of more details would have rocked; and more contrast. Good colours to work with.

I like this, it's interesting how the line of pylons, which can be the bane of many a decent picture, actually seem to add to this one.

9 :) a stark view. an empty road. powerlines. signs of life but none to be seen.

Yay! What a visual feast, having all those butt ugly electric poles there, who put them there, the board of aesthetics? Sorry, I just hate telephone and electric poles, hehe :P Shot is nice, very infinity and beyond.

Another great photo. I really love the overall feel of this photo, it's almost post-apocalyptic in feeling. Desolate, no one in sight, the rocks and such on the right in the foreground look like rubble.

I didn't know quite where to deduct a point here, but the saturation seems a bit rich to me, so I took it from lighting and I couldn't justify to myself taking it from aesthetics. It's only right in the foreground, the stones and dirt and such seem too saturated. I quite like it that way, but thought I should mention it.

I love the hazy look in the distance. I see a lot of photos where they try to fix the haze, but I think this looks so much better. It creates a real mood and feeling of everything being infinitely out of reach. I also like the way the road is portrayed, I'm glad you took this where you did rather than further ahead. Like you just went over a hill, creating a feeling of hope as though there will be something in the distance, but no, there's nothing. Just more road, and nothing but rock as far as the eye can see.

I think there might be a town of some kind in the distance I can sort of see, but overall if doesn't affect it. Very nice shot.
