    I see all this beatiful stuff almost every day while I'm at work, or on the way. Yet, I'm forced to look at it from behind all these damn wires :grumpy: Just couldn't pass this one up. Taken with a (new) Hoya polarizer. Colors were warmed in PS. But, it was the light rays that were visible that made me want to take this picture.

    The difference between my Eitar (which isn't a bad brand) and the new Hoya filter, is like night and day!!! Worth every penny.

    Oh my goodness... I am at a complete loss of adjectives! That shot is amazing...and honestly, I agree. Without the power lines it wouldn't be half as good.

    You chose well, Jake, and what a presence of mind to put up the powerlines before you took the photo of this lovely sunset with all those rays! ;)
    I would not have been able to let a sight such as this one pass without wanting to take its picture.
    However I might not have been able to put up all those power line poles AND the lines before it'd all have been gone and night would have fallen ;) ;) ;).

    When we walk with an open mind and open eyes, aren't there beautiful things around us?

    This is so true! It's amazing what we take for granted in the way of beauty. Thanks for the compliment.

    Yeah, I agree too. The powerlines are only in the bottom of the frame so they add to the compositon. If they'd been higher, they would have been a problem, :) so congratulations on keeping them low (keeping distance from them).
