And dam good shots they are, mate. ;-) I like the first one especially, and it seems to fit the challenge best. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you very much WalterC, selvin and jelpee. I think the challenge is great and is a fun way to get into thinking more about what I am actually trying to achieve with a shot.

cheers

Bernice

You even captured the red wooden sign as a diagonal as was your intent, right. Like the way you made the road look as if it is going on forever and to nowhere.

Hey, you noticed Calicajun! No, I didn't intentionally make the red sign diagonal, but did dicker about whether to include it at all. That's when I noticed it was diagonal and didn't mind the effect.

Your comments are appreciated.
