A belated congratulations on this great finish. Very cool shot. I must have been taking one of my breaks when this challenge finished. Very nice job - reminds me of my years in Oklahoma.

Moody image that captures the title nicely. Since it's so centered as a composition it bothers me a little that there is more road showing on the left side of the subject.

I like the colors of this shot. The saturation is great - the contrast between the sky and ground. And the monochromatic harmony of the road and field - it makes the boy stand out. 10 from me

I love this photo -- the colors just add so much to the feel I get from it. I hope it scores well!

Great image. I would have liked to seen the shot taken from slightly off to the left of the subject, as opposed to directly behind, to show more of the road. I think this would take the viewer from the person down the road and exemplify the "nowhere" a bit more.

Great environment/setting for this shot. Sky is almost to the point of being too grainy. Sorry if that's one of my first observations, but it jumps out at the viewer initially. Centered composition? Some will like it, some won't. I find it fits this photo just fine. Good luck in the challenge.
