Great shot. Would you mind sharing exactly where this is? I go to Arkansas at least once a year to photograph and would love to try my hand at this one. Thanks,

Thanks everyone for your comments!

Harriet - according to my camera time stamps this was on route 5 going north between Norfork Arkansas and Mountain Home. It was taken about 10 minutes after some shots in Norfork and Norfork to Mountain Home is only about 15 miles, so starting from either point it shouldn't be more than a 10 minute drive. It's right on the main road (on your right if going north). It sits out in a field in the country close to some other rural homes and has a fence around it. It was between 2:50 and 3:00pm when I was there in October of this year and the sun was in a horrible position to where I had to stand to get any decent angle. This would be a great shot earlier or later in the day when the sun wasn't coming right into the lens. But you know how it goes - you have to work with what you have ... :-) I did a lot of post processing to try to "help" the lighting conditions and was kind of surprised to see I got a finalist on this one but happy too. If you happen to have the opportunity to get a few shots of this place, be sure to let me know. I would love to see them. /Mike #9871478

Not that I can see what post processing needed to be done... Excellent work Mike! I hope you get a chance to photograph it again. I see lots of possibilities. Congratulations on your finalist selection. #9916624
