--The Countryside/Rural Living--

Ok. Had to change this from my original idea as it had been done before.

So, anything that says 'countryside' to you. Be it a landscape or an item that make syou think of sunny days in the hills. Anything that invokes a sense of rural living will do.

Go for it people! dazzle me with your art!

Good luck all. (p.s. you get an extra 24 hours as I may be out the night it should finish)

Ouch :(

I went through the list and must have missed it...
Thanks for pointing it out.

Going to change the subject from 'Transportation' to 'The Countryside/Rural Living'

I will edit the above post to reflect the change.
Apologies to anyone who reads this AFTER the change is made.
Sorry for the confusion.

Cheers,

Edd

Ok,

Apologies for taking longer than anticipated to judge this but I had a few things on that kept me away from the net.

Anyway here goes.....

Thanks for entering all - loads of good pics which made it really hard to choose.



In 3rd place:

'Where's the wind' by ScottM

I love the sepia on this and how the sky is so perfect. Nice composition. Was hard to make this 3rd and not first or second place. Nice pic indeed!.

In 2nd place:

'The hay before the storm' By SKF

This was gonna be numero uno but got pipped at the post. I love this pic - nicely framed and using HDR with a lensbaby is so rare! its subtle but beautiful. Nicely done.

In 1st place:

'Sunset' By Kmac

The colour (color to you Americans lol) of this shot is nicely muted - or is it black and white? its almost hard to tell. Either way its a great composition. It really says countryside to me. You almost dont notice the man sat on the horse in front of the buidling on the right. Really impressed with this pic. Well done!

So there you go - you are up next Kmac! Good luck :)
