I'm finding it difficult to get a shot for a Free Study these days!! After a whole month I had nothing for the free study. Shot this the morning of the last day and processed and uploaded whith a half hour so spare :)

This is pretty much a typical country road in the south west corner of Western Australia.

well this is nothing to sneeze at, anything above 6.2012 for you should make you a happy man !!!!.. a most beautiful scene .. the rays of light coming thru the trees and the road and the painted line going off into the distance .. BRILLIANT .. your processing is wicked as usual .. i cant decide whether you are guilty as hell of taking an excellent photograph while driving or you were the passenger .. dont be concerned, i wont dob you in .. it would be totally hypocritical of me anyway ... :)

Great shot but the cars at the end of the road detracts from the impact

Beautiful sun rays. I don't care much for the letterbox border, but a beautiful image nonetheless.

Border detracts in my opinion, because the lines on the road just... stop. It works at the top, just not at the bottom. However, the image itself is stunning. The contrast is lovely and I adore the composition. Sun-rays like this always grab my interest.

Very cool, I like the movie feeling made by the frame. The light is magical. Even though the picture is busy, the focal point is clear, and the leading line is helping to find it. Good job!

very cool shot ... the b/w conversion is good ... I love the streaking sunlight, it makes this pop ... I think the only thing that would make this even better is if the cars weren't in the shot ... 8

Nice b&w conversion. Love the light rays.

Beautiful light. Love those rays. Your choice of b&w makes it an instant classic. Amazing photo.

Great sunrays. A shame you have cars coming down the road but the shot is still strong.

I like the light streaks and the black and white works well. To me, it seems a little too heavy black in the lower right quadrant. 7

Great job. Very unique idea and the B&W works well.

I absolutely love this shot, the feel to the picture with the B&W conversion and light coming through the trees just gives a mood to it all. I feel it should be on the cover of a movie or poster. Really wish the cars weren't there but other than that I love the shot. Nice work. 8

Interesting with the lane dividers and the lines of the rays almost intersecting. Wonderful tones.
