This is a fantastic shot but wouldn't this fall under electronics which are excluded from the contest?

Great photo, I'd suggest cropping the dyke out at the bottom though, I think its distracting.

Great photo, I'd suggest darkening the mid-tones up a touch.

It has a flight of the navigator vibe to it. Pretty cool!

I'm a bit suspicious of this one too. Not just the shadow but the perfect horizon line and the shaft of light from the sun. Maybe it's a rare occurrence when things look surreal and I'm just a bit jealous!

"stripes and/or squares" IMO it would be on theme as the squares are a dominant feature.

Amazing view. I think it would look even better if some of the shadows reached black.

I really like the lighting along with the grass's vertical lines against the ripples on the water.

Good shot but I find the 'haloing' around the tree a little distracting.

Love the lighting. Those horns look like they've been sharpened...and already drawn blood!

I am sorry, but I still feel this should be disqualified. I am a stickler for rules. Not even a black piece of card would make such a solid defined line. This is selective editing.

fatmike85 says:

While I think this is a fantastic photo, I think there has been selective editing applied to where the forehead meets the hairline (visible in hi-res). It looks like a solid black curve has been applied to unify the line of the face. I think this is against competition rules.

This is a great photo, I almost think it is wasted on this competition topic though.

I like the shot, but the colour has definitely been adjusted. Is that within the rules of this competition?
