Challenge: Horizon Line (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Lens: Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM
Date: Dec 4, 2010
Date Uploaded: Dec 4, 2010

Inspired by the posthumous challenge. I have no good horizons around here, but I was intrigued with the idea of creating an image that spoke horizon without actually having a proper landscape horizon in it. Hence this image.

This is a picture of the road in front of my house. The blue/sky area is the pavement and the brown/earth area is the concrete gutter section of the road. The white areas are snow on top of the dead grass coming out of the crack. Shot with a slightly long exposure to get the funky blur. The edit brought out the funky colors which gave a surreal feel of earth and sky. And the title comes straight from the challenge description. Felt it worked well considering that this image appears to be a horizon.

No hopes to score high with this. Hopefully no brown though. Should be interesting to see the reception on this.

You're well into the dark side now. I don't know if there's any turning back...

One of my two tens. "Sheepish looking clouds," as pointy so eloquently phrased it, are along the lines of the words I couldn't come up with.

Came out quite nice! The patch of snow on the right looks like a sheep.

Not everyone's cup of tea, but I do like it. Good luck.

And we count sheep whilst waiting for the fall. I count 7 of them. I give you a 7.

I am fond of the sheeps in your painting (if these are clouds, that's fine too). The saturation of the complementing colors works together very well. I would love to learn how to paint like this.

Looks like an early cave painting - the fortune of the great white bison! 7

Whatever you say Mr. van Gogh. Seriously cool photo here. I really like the burnt edges; gives it a frame that helps it out yet isn't stodgy or confining.

Please tell me how you did this so I can play also. Excellent.

This I like, It's got colour & magic. It could be anything.

Whilst a pleasing image with nice textures and colors I find it a bit too abstract and obscure to fit the bill for this challenge theme.

I cannot say why this image appeals to me, but it does.

Very cool. I think I see a car in the center, next to those two giant...sheep??? Clouds? Snow-covered benches?

Seems to me that using the definition of Horizon line as your title, coupled with a very artistic image, that has little visible horizon in it, is a poor combination. I really like the warm earth tones and the look of the image, just not for this challenge. Though I did stare at your image a loong time. 5

I love the abstractness that the blur presents. It's almost as if the two white "things" are sheep running. :) I like it.
