Ha! This is match if I've ever seen one! I cropped some unnessesary noise from the city below and burned around the top for some more distinction, but as far as you can see, this is a beautiful example of when nature collaborates and MATCHES eachother! Thanks for looking!

thanks for all the kind comments. I unfortunately was DQ'd AGAIN. My pictures are getting better and so is my ranking. I'll just have to start paying better attention to the rules. Sorry for being a bad example everyone. Be back soon.

lexopposite - FANTASTIC shot!

Sorry to see the DQ! :(
Doesn't change the fact that this is an incredible photo - well done!

Looking forward to future entries!

I MADE IT! After only three other challenges (one where I was DQ'd for having text on it) I finally made in the top ten. The other challenges I entered I averaged in the 50% rating. Good to be above average finally. Thanks! I'm going for ribbon next. :)

Congrats on a beautiful image. The only concern I have is in your description about burning around the top. Sounds like a no no to me in basic. Still a lovely capture.

This is an extraordinary happening :-) Really good eye at work here! Congrats on top-10, and highest ranked non-matchstick entry.

Took me a sec, but I got it. Foreground is a bit dark in this otherwise beautiful scene.

Amazing symmetry, well served by the vertical lineage pulling the eye to a center focal point. Nice capture!

This is gorgeous. What a great catch with the clouds outlining the mountains. Love it!

Great shot! I would have cropped out the top portion as it does not do much for the photo.

How cool is that? Good eye.

On my first run through I just didnt get the title or relation to the challenge. Now that I am back to comment and look closer it is obvious and I feel a bit stupid for my first reaction. Great sunrays and the glow between the mountains and clouds is very cool. Bumping up to 7.
