I looked earlier and I like it better now. I'm not sure what that says. I'm noticing the colors more now.

I did, actually. I was disappointed to see your tree wasn't here in Texas. State tree and all that. ;)

I did notice the moon myself and I agree that it adds to the photo. I absolutely love how the tire tracks become the leading lines that take you to the subject. The reflection of the sky on the puddles is simply beautiful and that's what makes this photo special in my opinion. The only thing I don't like is the frame you chose – especially at the top of the image – but that's just me.

Your Kansas landscape looks quite similar to our Lower Saxony landscape (North Germany) :D... The tree is a beauty. As was the weather on the day you went out! I like that sliver of crescent moon up there in the corner.

That's a beautiful bit of light gathering...Good job!

thank you, yes, it was a beautiful blue sky that day and i come upon this tree and i saw the tire tracks and moon and it just pretty much composed itself. the frame is simply there just because i needed it into a 5x7 and i just didnt take the time to crop out the border when i posted it here. thanks again for commenting

We have a winner! This is a great photo. Every now and then a photo comes along with really gripping atmosphere and this is one of those. Great capture!:thumbup:

oh im so glad you like it i admire your work also
