Nobody entered an urban or city scape, everybody's mind set on the wide open spaces.

I did one featuring our Leeds dalek ( Bridgewater Place structure complete with neon lights around the top that is so well designed  that they have to close the roads around it on a windy day after a tragic death  when a lorry blew over onto a poor guy a few years back). In bright light and blue skies it just didn`t appeal to me though so went for the deconstructed effort. You should have put one in Abers.

It just crossed my mind that landscape immediately conjures up wide open vistas in the mind. I'm no different, and if you're out in the countryside why not?

A few pennorth from me.


6. Lanzarote Vineyards - was so looking forward to seeing this image as I`d messaged you saying to look out for them. I think the placement of the building dead centre and the lines taking you out of the frame just left it cluttered. Needs a little contrast punch to show that black ash spoil I feel.

I had so many to choose from and I obviously chose badly. This was my hubby's choice and I regretted it almost immediately. I had lots o colourful images including the salt flats, mirador del rio and laguna verde. He ho, will pick myself next time.

Here's my comments:

Deconstructed Landscape. I nice 'outside the box' image but not really what I had in mind when setting the theme however I did like it.

Yosemite Reflections. A deserved winner, spot on and just what I had hoped to see. Well done.

The Field. Got my vote. Loved the retro feel to this one and the composition.

Seascape To Wales - The bend in the trees really gave this image character. This was my 2nd favourite image.

Run Of The Mill. Was a little too run of the mill for me. Sorry.

Woodscape. I think this could have benefitted from different lighting, maybe catching some rays through the trees at sunup/sundown. Would have given it a more haunting feel.

This is the Facebook piece I saw that made me think about doing a deconstructed landscape. I thought his were rather excessive in number and lacking emphasis so chose to do a smaller range / format

I had seen something about it in the past, possibly in the DCM days. I remember I had a go at it and never got anywhere.

By the way, I am 'AN Other' and voted for this deconstructed landscape.

Congratulations on the win Jen, a classic landscape. And yet again, I did not see the tree, till someone pointed it out. I'm not sure I'll ever learn to 'see' a photograph in its entirety. I often blank out things that shouldn't be there, and only see what I am meant to see.

I took a city scape while on my way to Elsewhere, but never got round to entering it. In a way it is the opposite of Jinky's deconstructed landscape: A construction City Scape.

This is it:



Now that I see it on the page, I realise it is still a bit wonky. Of course I did not see that on my screen!

And thanks to you then Reinardina. Don`t think yours is shot wonky - just distorted perspective because of focal length I think. Nice to try something different

The left hand side is not quite straight. I should have cropped a bit off that side to hide it.
