A wonderful shot, congrats. That's pretty flat country you live in there, it's the kind where you can see on Monday who is coming to visit you on Friday :)))

Already voted but came back to comment on how much I like this. The sepia gives it a timeless kinda feeling and reminds me of the movie "Vanishing Point" which first came to my mind when I saw this challenge, Good Luck!

Very good shot, well balanced. Nice use of tone.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Love the sky! There's no doubt you're eyes are forced to vanish into the distance! Super Job!

Looks like roads I like to drive on, unlimited speed....

08/17/2004 04:32:45 AM

RIGTH IN THE CENTER, YOU BROKE THE PICTURE IN TWO
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/16/2004 07:03:45 PM
Although the road is somewhat washed out the use of sepia makes this photo. Great sky!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great shot--perfect colorization choice.

A great shot. Yes, seems like it would be cliche for this challenge, but this is the only photo of this subject matter category that is actually pretty good. When you can take something that out to be cliche and turn it into something outstanding, you have truly done something great. Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Looks like the midwest. Maby a bit overexposed looking at the first part of the road, but I guess the far end would have been to dark if not.

good picture, great combination
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2004 02:32:55 PM
This shot has a sort of surreal look to it, very nice, I like the shading
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent image, nice sky. good work
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2004 11:54:47 AM
I love the softness of the clouds here, like cotton batting. Nice color choice and lovely DOF to get that distant vanishing point.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2004 11:48:01 AM
This is beautiful work, nice with the sepia colors love the dark and moody sky and the white road, good luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/12/2004 10:50:58 PM
This is very fine. Like the textures a lot, like the sky and the sun streaks you caught a lot, and the fact the focus on this is so good that I can probably see further clearly the VP in this than any other entry so far. Like the sepia tone very much as well. Excellent and good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/12/2004 08:59:47 PM
Wow! This sure reminds me of home (Texan born and raised but unfortunately transplanted elsewhere). I like the sepia tone as well. Good job... a 9

Man I'm glad I didn't enter this challenge. There are way too many great photo's. 10 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2004 09:34:38 PM
Nice vanishing shot, I think I would actually prefer to see it in its original color than sepia, though. The sepia actually makes the photo a little flatter for me. But it's just an opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2004 09:24:09 PM
great sky, well balanced, good entry
