I've loved this shot for a very long time. The choice of processing really hides the wires well too.. Nicely done!

Congrats on your new PB (and the ribbon)! This is a beautiful image that not only stands on its own merit, but I could easily imagine being worth a pretty penny to a lot of people.

Awesome clouds in the dishes.

Cool shot. I love the cloud relfection in the dishes. I wish you could have brought out more the lines running across the sky.

WOW!! Bet this one wins a blue!

What a lovely photo. The clouds in dishes are a great touch. My eye however is drawn to the stark white bands and letterbox black border. I think a simple border would have worked much better here and let your photo draw me in rather the then border.

Great shot. Where is this? Makes me wonder if they will be still in use in 10 years or considered just another experiment.

Wow! I never really thought of looking for reflections in solar cells. Great composition and colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/29/2010 02:28:16 PM
Very, very, very nice.. I suspect you are beating me soundly with this image... What a wonderful shot, and a beautiful place..

Shame this was basic editing, as I would have liked it even better without the power lines (which you did, in all fairness, do a good job of hiding...) 8

I find it unbelieveable that people complain about how these look (and the windmills) spread out over a field, but there are no complaints about old smokestacks belching pollution into the air from coal and nuclear plants... anyways, great picture here, just perfect with the clouds reflecting in the dishes and only a hint of cloud in the sky behind them... I think this will ribbon for sure!
