    On our way to a hiking trail, we happened upon these mailboxes... I guess this is as far as the PO delivers! Comments are welcome and encouraged. Thanks.

    Great idea. This is a view that we see all over rural America. Perhaps a longer focal length compressing the distance and eliminating some of the road in front and trees to the rear of the boxes might be another way to shoot this collection...

    I agree with Richard about this being a great idea.

    The copy posted up here is at quite a small size and we can't really see it too well. Is this resized down from a larger original. If so, it would be good post up the larger file.

    In addition to what Richard has said, I'd be thinking about a shot like this make a B & W image, although I'm not sure that this one has the tonal range that you'd ideally be looking for. But I think a bit of work composing it could have isolated a group of the boxes that would have given that.

    Good vision to see the possibilities in this scene.

    Donald, of course! You are so right. B&W would have been much better. Thanks for the suggestion.

    If I can figure out how to do it, I will post a B&W for comparison. Sorry the first one was too small... still working on learning the system.
