I took this picture on highway 50. Life magazine named highway 50 the 'loneliest road' in the US. Because of the publicity, it is no longer the loneliest road. There were cars coming every 5 minutes so I had to time this shot between them.
There is a kind of peace to be derived from driving so-called 'lonely' roads. I, for one, appreciate the ABSENCE of traffic, and just enjoy the vastness of the surroundings. Amer, your image has captured that feeling perfectly. I would love to know how you got the rayed effect on the sun. Did you use some special sort of filter? Was it caused by the elements of your lens? If so, what kind of lens did you use? Or, if this was a PS filter, which one?? Enquiring minds want to know! :-)

seen on the L game of the game group...
IMHO a pure piece of art...
exposure, lightning control (tricky here) and DOF are excellent...
my best, francis.

Very good capture where the centre composition fits the image perfectly
Friday, May 23, 2008 2:33:31 PM
Did you stand in the middle of the road for this one?
I like how the road seems to vanish...the sun is cool too not too blinding..
perhaps try it from a lower point?
to give it yet another perspective..
