Thanks to our dear friend Tara for helping me with this shot! Also my lovely wife, Marianne for her excellent advice! I hope your shot does well, Sweetie!

Processing: Autocolor, then lifted the middle tones in Levels. Shifted to Lab Color and slightly blurred channels A and B for color noise. Cloned out dust from sensor (I gotta figure out how to get that sensor clean!). Cropped, resized, sharpened, added border.

Yes, yes, yes, this is what I've been waiting for! Especially in North America you have those roads that go straight for miles and miles and do not seem to end. That would have been my choice for the challenge.

I like the addition of a person in this one and the clouds are beautiful. Is she on the wrong side of the street or is this a left-driving country? Hope this wins a ribbon! 10.

Perfect tones and composition. Funny how the stripes on the road aren't parallel. Great shot.
