Light trails on M66 by stylo

LynEve: Congratulations on your placement in the contest :)

Tootles: I think this is brilliant! I sat for a while looking at the thumbnail, thinking "is that one of Chris's?" I decided it wasn't, but it was! That will teach me. :-P

It takes courage to stand in the road like that, but this is a spectacular shot.

4th place
Breaking the Rules by Dunstickin

Pistos: What I like is that it breaks rules while keeping them in more subtle ways. The tall grass on the left and the grey clouds cause the image to be broken 1/3 to 2/3 in the vertical direction. The tops of the people's heads plus the blue sky/cloud line roughly falls on the 1/3 line. Nice results. It is because the rules are broken that the image traps the eye, such as the subjects not being large in the picture, and yet because of subtlety, the picture remains pleasing to the eye, so you continue looking.

5th place

Good find and good luck in the contest!
