    Needless to say, THIS is going to be a tough one. Regardless who wins, congratulations goes to everyone who submitted a picture. They were all wonderful!

    You can vote once in each group. That still doesn't help because I have no idea how you are going to pick just one from each of those groups. So good luck!

    Larkspur - because the road twists just right.

    This is definitely the hardest contest yet! For me it was closest between larkspur and hypnagogue but in the end I had to go with hypnagogue

    Hypnagogue has just got it I'm afraid! I love Yomamma's pic too but the date print spoils it, better luck next time kiddo! Mathh's composition is the best in this round but the sky lets it down, curse the northern weather! Where was that photo taken anyway, looks like Southport way to me.

    Although there are some fine pictures here, Hypnagogue's is just amazing. Composition, contrast, color, it's got the "rule of thirds" goin' on... We're talking professional photograph here.

    I had a good shot I was going to submit, but knew it was all over when I saw this one.

    I went with larkspur. I'm a fan of nice forest smelling roads.

    No doubt about it: Hyp's pic is awesome!!! But really and truly, they are all GREAT shots. Congratulations to everyone.

    Larkspur, that looks like so many roads upon which I've thrashed. What's the speed limit; about 70 MPH? :biggrin:

    Now that's a scary thought!(70mph) Was this in a car or on a motorcycle?

    On a road like that, a small pickup. Of course I knew every turn in detail. And that was a long time ago. :biggrin:

    Really, 70 would be a little too fast I think. That next curve look pretty tight; maybe more like a 50 MPH turn I'd imagine. And that depends on what's around the corner. If its a 90 degree turn you could probably make it with good off-road tires.

    A bump for this and a reminder that you have less than a day left to vote for this group, if you haven't done so already.
