What a great idea and picture. Well done in producing such a memorable image.
Great idea and outcome. There was some tough competition too. Congratulations.
Classy image. Well done.
Lovely lighting and an interesting subject. Well done.
Another great bird picture.
Beautiful subtle colours and composition.
Great shot. Pintails are so beautiful but always seem so far away when I see them. I guess I need to put in a bit more effort! Congratualtions on a podium finish in an open topic challenge.
Lensmate: 5 stars by 5 people.......bit excessive for this shot......sounds like 'buddies' are voting for a win vote here. Fine shot....but not a winner......This guy has won many challenges before and the voting, [as Mr Midwest has put it] is kinda questionable, except for the other reason! Overzealous voting perhaps......friends voting for friends is also unfair!Guys in photo clubs and the like........all tend to flock together....wink.Personally, I've never told anyone, nor ever asked for anyone to vote my way, but from many different wins here, one can clearly see at times that this practice takes place!
I don't solicit votes and I'm not in a photographic club. Like all we forum dwellers we have few friends, certainly not five!
Thanks and glad those you that liked it enjoyed it. It's at the Nevada Northern Railroad at Ely, Nevada.
I like the feel of this. Well done.
Nice colourful entry.
Beautiful image in a toughly fought challenge.
Wow another great set from you! Wonderful idea and image.
I second Hans' comment. It looks REALLY cold! Great picture.
The host said "Not necessarily cold as a temperature..." Those words do not rule out entries that represent cold temperatures.
cjf2: Great picture. I love the position of the individual elevators and the shape formed by the rails.
That's very kind of you to say. You've got some pretty good stuff I your collection yourself. I see you are in Frankfurt and I passed through there on the train today. Up since 3 am so off to bed for me!
cjf2: Wonderful image combining colour with being frozen. Great framing too. Looks like it got more votes than the pictures with higher places and should have won to my mind but congratulations on 5th anyway.
Thanks. I'll have give that a go.
