The Road to Hell

Hi Everyone

After my distrasous idea with the pixel bender I thought I'd try and redeem myself

I took this photo of the road leading from Beaufort to Brecon in South Wales when I was visiting Llangorse on the weekend, I'd be intrested to see what you think

I wanted the road to really stand out so I applied a kinda infrared effect in lightroom

Great shot Stephen,
I like the composition and contrast in the shot. I particularly like the way you positioned the shot relative to the road surface, not too close to lose those snaking curves.
It all works very well IMO

Re: The Road to Hell

Wow! top man! love the shot and know this road well (I tried to do a pano from the northern edge looking across to Llangorse Lake - too hazy)
This is excellent, well done
