    Members reference what you might consider a five star photo. Give a call out to the photographer and share their photo even if it lies in the Shark Tank and feel free to give a Critique on why it trips your Trigger.

    Dave Watkins stole my heart with this photo on so many levels, perspective, composition, b&w, timelessness:

      Made me wonder where those rail tracks go to oh and the road of course!

      Absolutely great photo-looks like the road and the tracks will crash into one…

    No other reason other than I am a sucker for a pretty picture and this sure is purty.

      That is a stunning picture! Well done Jaclyn! Wait a Second- That picture was uploaded by Lynne. Well done Lynne!

      Thanks Billy and yes I go by Lynne Kent. I’m sure Billy checked the copyright in ps, and Jaclyn is my legal name. Instead of Jackie I go by Lyn. JacLYN. But lyn seemed too short. I explain bc people frequently ask is your middle name Lynne? I say yeah my parents hated me so they named me Jaclyn Lynne…. Then they get it lol

      Great pick Billy and great pic Lynne. I’m still pondering how you made this image look the way it does. The foliage in particular has a painted metallic look. Wonderful composition and colours.

      This definitely has some special processing done to this. Love it…

      I also agree, this is such a wonderful image 🙂 Great job, Lynne!

      Thanks everyone, the metallic and plastic look are each a different series of processes in ps done to yellow and green seperately. I wanted a surreal feeling.

    Roberts input “Walk slowly and pay heed on the Prairie” in Landscape photography displays strong and beautiful images, one of Devils Kitchen amongst them.

      This is the type of landscape that is extremely difficult to create an interesting photograph of. Roberts has done a wonderful job here.

      Just been looking at this large on Flickr, there is so much detail, it’s amazing!

    Great choice here Elin.  Kent is right, this type of landscape is very difficult to get a good shot.  The perspective is great.

    I like this shot a lot.  The lighting does wonders to highlight the attitude of this “Predator.” At least at this moment in time. 🙂  What a great expression he/she has on its face. My focus is drawn to the eyes. There are a lot of shades of green in the world and I think you’d be hard pressed to find a better one for this image. Thumbs up Graham.
