    this just came up in the randoms; I was not around when it was in a comp, but am quite happy to rank it as one of the best images I have seen for while anywhere. I just love the layering of the receding horizons, a type of landscape I try for and know how difficult it can be...but in this one the colour is also just gorgeous and even better as a winter tonic now

cheers Chris

    Way to go Billy, I actually picked this as likely to be one of yours, did not guess the other though, good job.

    its really nice!! i especially like how that trees appear to grow in layers- like apainting!!\

    Amazing composition, fantastic exposure and color. Despite the lack of the sun anywhere in sight, TT.

    Very warm looking indeed. Layer after layer after layer of ghostly images and all beautifully composed. In my top 5.

    gorgeous colours, great shot.TT

    thanks Hi..a scene i shoot alot!

Jun 23, 2006
    Incredible! The colors and layers of trees stand out.

    Thanks City and Pirate..warm mode is a setting in the Panasonic FZ30 (and others) which I occasionally use! I own photo shop but only ever use it to convert my raw files to jpeg...the snap was given minor adjustments with good old picasa!!

    Wow, really pretty. In my top ten. I hope you'll tell us after the challenge where this was taken. I'm not sure what 'warm' mode does -- did you really do no post-processing?

My only quibble is the nearly identical photo in the open challenge! I know it is not against the rules, but I can't help but feel it detracts from the impact of this one. Well, I'll try not to let my personal bias sway my vote. Good job!

    Awe inspiring shot. Wonderful colours. In my TT

Jun 23, 2006
