Taken in the Purbecks in Dorset - looking for a landscape shot of the rape field, when these cyclists appeared along the farmers track. Taken with a polarizing filter helped to contrast the colours.

I nearly passed this by but I'm so glad I didn't - it's a fabulous image. It would make a nice landscape anyway but the cyclists just finish it perfectly. Great!

Whether you saw this or were a tad instrumental in setting it up doesn't matter, it's a great shot and deserves to do really well.

Nice one, John. Cracking colours and a fine comp. I like the contrast between the dark sky and the bright yellow of the oilseed rape. The cyclists are a great touch.

Excellent shot. Would be pleasant enough without the cyclists, but is so much better for their inclusion. Dave.

Yep, this is very good indeed. The colours are striking and the composition/cropping is well thought out. Nice one.
