I like it, Jehan. It certainly draws you into the frame. Good DOF and desert colors.

Thanks Walter...Death Valley NP was desolate and stunning all at the same time!

I agree with it draws your eyes to the center location. Which way does the road go when you get to the bottom? I really like it and I hope you don't object that I saved it and tried to remove some of the blue cast from the windshield.

SDS,

Thanks...the road actually curves to the right at the point where it disappears from view. No worries about any edits...I'd like to see your edits.
FYI, I did not take this through the windshield. This was taken while standing on the center line of the highway. I think the blue cast is the reflection of the sky on the mountains. The air is quite clear out there.

No concerns about getting run over on this lonely stretch of road

I wish I could do the same in NYC -- looking up or down from the middle of Fifth Avenue -- but there's so much traffic. I like the sky's blue-ness. Very natural. Very nice composition, too. (Worth risking your life for ).

I apologize for the mistake about the windshield. I guess I thought that because this old man takes a lot of shots that way because of my health and I usually end up with a color cast at the top.
