An absolutely wonderful image. The structure set in the curvature of that sweeping landscape is quite enough to capture my full attention, but the magnificent light and the wonderful sky take it to another level. Add the compositional eye guides - the yellow leading line of the distant road, the caterpillar humps of the treeline, and you have quite a fine photograph here. Gonna go out on a limb here since you've put it in showcase rather than critique but I know you and don't think you'll take offense: before you print it you may wanta take a closer look at the deepest blue areas along the upper 1/4 of the image, where there's a little pixel stuff that has gathered in the darker blues. Once you iron that out, please enter it into any contest you find and you'll likely have a winner. (I did try flipping it and it is just as good that way but not necessarily better).

I took care of the second post. Posting anomalies do happen, I've gotten some unusual messages myself from time to time. Let us know if some weirdness persists!

Thank you, Min, ever so much for your careful examination and thoughtful comments. Much appreciated and absolutely no offense taken!
Further pp is needed, and yes, this is intended for a regional show in January.
Again, many thanks!

a story of left behind - love the old deserted building, surrounded by greedy sentinels, and the clouds come in and we look down the pole marked road and we begin our journey.

Hi,Piet, Thank you very much!
Beautifully said with finely crafted skill and insight.
You took those words right out of something I can only wish I could claim to have written!

You got it all!

I now know that my intents and aspirations for that image have been fulfilled.

Dave
