Challenge has finished
Show us an example of a very busy, detailed landscape which would make a great jigsaw puzzle. There must be evidence of man-made structures, such as roads, buildings, bridges over rivers or streams, orchards, tree plantations, vineyards, cultivated fields, etc. NO cityscapes, townscapes or seascapes this time please. Think 1,000+ piece, devious 'drive-you-crazy' picture with lots of minute details.... :-) SIZE: 1,600px MAXIMUM ON LONGER SIDE.

14th place
Taken in an late autumn afternoon on a cloudy day. The sunlight breaks through the clouds and cast an interesting light and shadow pattern on the valley below. The main subject is the terrace fields which are framed by the mountain slopes on top and bottom. A rapid river runs from left to right. The zig-zag road can be seen at the lower right. The village is called Rencun. It is located near Daocheng, Sichuan, China.
