Congrats on the great find and shooting it well! You have quite the artistic eye. Thanks for the link to your other stuff, too - remarkably diverse, but also full of what I love: different takes on common subjects.

I love it too. I love the simplicity of the lone tree. . .enhanced by the noise and beauty of the sky. Congratulations on 10th place.

This is gorgeous and I hope it hangs in your own home somewhere. Quite lovely. The powerline adds interest and I am asking myself what the other little spot on the horizon is... which is good. I love pics that ask questions...

Ooohhh! Ahhhhh! (BTW, an "Oooohh-Ahhhh" is a high rating from me.)

Only criticism I can have of this one is the telephone wires and pole. I think you could have cloned those out and kept within basic editing rules. Maybe. A good question to be raised.

I really like this one... especially how the texture at the top looks like stars.
Good choice for wabi-sabi - beauty in a puddle!

Fits theme perfectly. I appreciate that you left the light pole and power lines in. I would have been tempted to crop them out and I would have been left with a crappy photo. 8

That's a puddle? Gorgeous!!!! Love how the shining water looks like stars. I am not far into the voting but I believe you've hit the nail on the head with this challenge.
