Shadows AND trees in one photo! Was taken a couple summers ago somewhere in Glacier National Park, I don't remember where. Thats probably my favorite place in the world.

Here's mine. Following suit. This one is 5 years old and was taken in the Great Smokey Mountains - one of my favorite places in the world. :)

My wife probably knows exactly where we were, but all I can remember is that we were driving along at sunset while we were touring the Northwest. I think it was in South Dakota.

MAn dM, those Smokie Mountains do look pretty cool. If you look close enough in your picture, you can see a hillbilly bottling some white lightning fresh from his still.

I've actually got one very similar to dM's from Asheville NC of a sunset over the smokey's. Nearly looks the same minus the tree. I enlarged it to a 22 x 38 and it hangs on my living room wall in a pewter frame. It's been one of my fave pics for years. Nearly makes me homesick for the Carolinas.

Yep. This comp is gonna be tight. What is it with us and trees/shadows. I hope a lot of members vote on these because this is one of the better comp re: the entries to date. Hope we can at least double these entries with the same quality before the competition is over. There's already 4 that I am torn between voting for.

I typically try to judge here on content, but I think I'm going to have to delve into techniques to figure this one out. I'm glad to finally see some entries roll in! Does this mean I'm picking the next topic, too? :lol:

To be honest, it's a good topic entry UPSGuy. You did good with this.

I am very keen on seeing more competitions with two topic titles though so as to expand on the type of entries. I am also keen on letting the competition winner choose the next topic too like we used to.

One and a half weeks to go until the end of this competition, are there going to be any more entries?

I actually cannot wait to see how people vote on this.
