    Oh well, I also admire your photograph & PP skills (that seems endless) so I think we have a tie here :-) :-)
Well done again Jade, and this one for me was much better than my friendly lobster, we could easily swap positions and I'd be happy with that! :-)

    Funny I would have love to have captured yours as well! (And I think yours is truly a much better shot.) I'm surprised to have ranked this well in such a tough field. Thanks to all for your votes and comments.

    Would have loved to have taken this myself - clouds are great, and the foreground interest of the dishes are shot on.

    dodrizzt. Wow, I feel greatly honoured by your vote especially in this strong field and especially from someone whose photographs I admire so much.

    First, I like very, very much when the clouds make nice patterns in the sky. And yours is a nice example ;-) Second, I also like to make pano-stitching (I should try that for an entry soon :-) and yours is very nice, perfect stitching and great composition. And third, your very, very clever caption made me laugh a lot... starflowers... LOL!!! :-) :-) :-)
Of course the pic fits the theme, and summing all up, it can only be my #1. Well done!!!!

    rafinmelb. I wondered too but also felt the trees added size perspective and balance (weight). Also, I didn't want to do that much cloning (but in the end I realize eliminating the right most bunch of trees at least would have created more dramatic impact.)

kjwags. But the back of the dish to the left has blue ribbing too....

Mostly, I've been looking for an excuse to enter a photo of this stellar collection (how often do you get this many large dishes together outside of NASA Mission Control) so I took the chance here.

    Lovely sweep of sky with very interesting clouds. Somehow I think I want either the trees or the dishes but both together seem to clash. Probably not possible to get that view though.

    Is there anybody out there? having difficult time deciding on some photos in this challenge, alot of great shots like this one but having hard time deciding especially if blue in photo is sky. Is a landscape photo worthy? I guess it will come down to personal opinion but nice job getting this photo.

    Thanks, Mepo. I see your point and maybe I was wrong to think I needed the full width to capture the sweep of the heavens here.

    I like this - the sky especially. I wish you had cropped away the left side since I find the back of the first dish distracting. Nice use of light.
