    Thanks again for the comments - The Magic hour was what I hoped to achieve with a bit of tweaking. My Open shot was actually taken in late afternoon.

    I thought the color was due to the "magic hours" ! O well, congrats on your top 5 finish!

    Well done on this one...some pictures work without planning to much. I liked the sky anyway

    Nice feeling of past times. In my favorites.

    I've always admired these fences - in part because of the backbreaking labour used to build them. Never been able to capture it this well though.

    The colors and clarity here are very effective. I am bothered by the section of the fence that is obscured though. I think a higher vantage point that revealed more of the fence would have made this work even better. The lighting is beautiful. (Must have been taken during the "magic hours".) Good Luck!

    OMG Raf - you're right about the green sky - didn't notice it until after the challenge closed. I tried to warm up the scenery to make up for the fact that early Spring in Canada is a rather drab affair, unlike our beautiful autumns, and overdid it a tad As to the centering, Jade - I'm afraid we only had time to stop for a couple of seconds while I shot through the window. Thanks FC - it was nice to travel along this winding road and see the old fashioned fences.

    a lovely picture of something simple but still full of skills. love the fence takes the eye around the whole picture

    The colorful HDR effect of Topaz distracts me from the chosen perspective. Or perhaps the color range itself hides something from me. Or perhaps I just want the trees to be green (aka. waiting for spring to come).

    Looks like the Adirondacks, but the landscape and scene says Ontario (o.k. I googled Sharbot Lake). The fence is a clear subject but I sense the composition would be helped if it was less centered vertically.

    That green sky in the top left looks very odd to me.

I like the way the road and fence leads us into the shot and the colours (apart from teh sky) suit the scene well.
