POTN G-series Speed Challenge #611 - Boundaries, edges, lines or places of transition

Some examples: edges of seas and lakes, town and country, rough and smooth, freeway and footpath, poverty and riches. Primary focus should be on the line or area or place of transition between them, showing the contrast. As usual, best overall composition will win.


***************
RESULTS

First, my apologies for choosing such a confusing subject. I knew what I wanted and tried to explain, but the results were not what I had expected, which makes judging hard. Some comments anyway...

M_Six - "Stairway to....? Not sure whether you mean the transition line between the two colors, or the transition from whatever is on the two levels, but it's a striking composition.

Jim Askew - "Blue Skies and Rail Yards". I guess you mean the distant horizon is the boundary? The white line (artifact or contrail?) across the lower part of the tallest tower looks a bit out of place.

Trumper - "Invisible boundary". I actually thought your original entry fitted the theme well, showing a stretch of water between two different land masses, but this one is also interesting. Are those (near and far objects) geo markers marking a boundary between..??

Pictoraider - "City Macadam Stranger Neighbor Walkers". A novel perspective which could have several interpretations.

CarloY - "Something to Ponder". I did indeed ponder this clever shot. Looks like ice along the edge of the pond - am I right?

WINNERS

#1 - CarloY
#2 - M_Six
#3 - Pictoraider.

So...take it away, Carlo, and I hope you do a better job that I did on this one.

Kudos to CarloY. I didn't even see the pond or even that whole perspective until teekay pointed it out. I thought we were looking uphill into the sky beyond. Cool image.

Thanks for the #2 pick, teekay.

Interesting angle, pictoraider. How did that shot come about?

Congratulations to CarloY, M_Six, and Pictoraider :-). I admit I was at a loss as to how to interpret this challenge. I submitted my railyard shot as there was clear delineation between the sky and the ground. Not my best shot as I grabbed this capture through the window of a car as we were passing by the Chicago rail yards. Kudos to the other players who did a much better job this go around than I did :-)

Thanks Teekay for the nod, and congrats to M_Six and Pictoraider. I thought the theme was interesting and I was playing with 4 or 5 possible entries.

I think my Pond shot is a quite poor quality exposure and I was not able to do much to bring out the land and trees more. But maybe that works in favor of fooling the eye for this one.
Location is Northern California (West U.S.), and I think it was taken in August. So, 'no' to ice. I think it is a silty or slimy mud bank.

I'll have something up soon.

First, my apologies for choosing such a confusing subject. I knew what I wanted and tried to explain, but the results were not what I had expected, which makes judging hard. Some comments anyway...

Your theme was imho not confusing. it was about various edges and separations existing apart the world. Visible and physical ones as those who separate poverty and richess, sky and earth, or sky and water. Invisible, intangible and tiny but truly existing and hard to break ones as those who for example separate persons who live everyday together and next together in the same place or district.

Thanks for the challenge, hosting and judging. ;-)a

:-) Once again i enjoyed all the entries and could understand them all.I have to say as soon as i saw CarloY one i thought that was the winner,almost a mythical world.
Mine is a trig point on the North Yorkshire Moors and that is RAF Fylingdales in the distance --used to look like giant golf balls.

:) As a side note :) I get my repaired camera back tomorrow YEEHAA ,i've missed you :)
