barb_s: Hi - do you remember roughly where you took this? I just spend 2 weeks in the southwest states and was trying to find a spot like this but just never got the perfect place without other distractions. You did a great job with it, artistic, and the B/W works!
I can show you exactly where it was in South Wales, UK.
Lovely shot and a worthy winner, congratulations.
Congratulations! This is a great image and worthy winner.
Thanks to all who voted. In case you're interested, look here for "behind the scenes":
Cary Maures: well done. like the blue tone.
Brilliant shot. Congratulations!
Peter Galbavy: I like it, and I don't want to sound like I am taking the p*** but the handle of the cup is ever so so slightly non-horizontal (anti-clockwise) which after all the conditioning I have tried forcing myself into for horizons just jumped out at me.
You are right. I thought I'd got away with it!
Mike Ronesia: Congrats! I really like this.
If you stare at this for long enough you'll notice there's a cooker at bottom right! Great shot. Really cleverly done.
That's a great shot. Congratulations!
This is great. Really made me laugh.
