    Congrats Roland on your top 10 finish! Some have mentioned a vignette. Did you apply one here?

    I guess you added a bit of a light vignette on the corners? It looks like it and unfortunately I think it is distracting from the beautiful landscape. Still one of my favorite though.

    i love new mexico. so many environments. you can be in the high desert one moment and next thing you know you are driving through a lush valley following a meandering river with orchards and livestock in abundance, then lava fields, white sands, alpine forests, etc.
i like this alot and it would go higher in my voting with a bit less pp. the corners have become a sort of foggy vignette (unless that was what you were looking for). and a slight cropping of the left side and the top (imho)

    I think the shot itself is terrific, the PP though is a little too much for my taste. My rule of thumb is if I see the PP before the shot then it is too much. Just an opinion.

    Vying for my top picks. I love the ground but feel like the sky is over processed so I am torn. Really a fine landscape shot all the same. I hope you post the original in outtakes.

    Fantastic sky - love the way it's concentrated over the chimney. I think the vignette detracts from the strength of the subject. Love the colours and detail in the landscape. Well done.
