Oh, this was a tough one. A bridge/tunnel is being built below San Francisco in difficult terrain. A two lane, busy road goes by it. I thought on a Sunday it might be okay to grab a pic, what with construction vehicles idle. Weekend travel made it pretty hairy anyhow. I and my little car made it into a tiny pullout. This was the only view I could get safely. then came the problems of pulling it out of the murk of the haze sent up from southern California.

besides converting from RAW and cropping, I used Levels, Shadows & Highlights and then Smart Sharpen.

lol the things we do for a picture. Love how the blues stand out from everything else. It's an interesting idea but I think the background makes it kind of hard to tell what is going on. And i have no idea how you could make this better lol.

Interesting landscape, but I can't figure out what's going on here enough to see if it fits the theme.

When I look at your photo, my eyes are "pushed" to the empty middle space by the two elements on the side. Once in the middle - there's nothing there to hold my visual interest.

Hard to decern what this is, as the main subject is to low in the picture.

Could have been a good one for "Distance" as well. I like the image, but my eye is torn three ways, between the two bright blue construction areas and is also being drawn up the hill at the same time. I'm afraid there is just no flow to this photo.
