    Cracking photo. Love it. Are those people in the distance? Just wish there were slightly less vanishing points as we are spoilt for choice on the horizon. GL.

    Lovely example of vanishing points. Nice of the rainbow to appear at the right moment

    I love this shot and the colors really make it. IMHO, the rainbow distracts from the VP idea.

    Very nice find with a rainbow, nice vanishing point and colours.

    Thanks the colour was due to the sunset at the last minute. Sunset shone through but still light rain where I was standing.

    Very good interpretation of the challenge. I see you straightened it in PP, just a little more to the right and it would of been perfect! Hues are maybe a little too pink would love to see the original. Needs little more contrast maybe also.

Should do well though.

    Gorgeous scene -- with a rainbow no less.

    I tried to find a clean horizon and agricultural rows but it is not easy. Congrats on getting one here and the rainbow is I think on the wrong side - I'd have moved it to the left. Still you make my TT.

    this is lovely. The colors, lines, and the tiny looking structures along the left horizon. Oh yeah, and the double r-bow. The right moment! If "tone" means added red and purple shade to sky, I probably would have pulled back a bit on this - and it might have helped with the sky noise.

    Very pretty scene. This could do well in the challenge. I'm not crazy about the composition but it illustrates the vanishing point theme very well. The white balance seems a bit off to me but it seems you have mix lighting in the scene so what I see in your photo might be the way you saw the colors on the field. In my faves.

    Well done on an excellent image. These fields must be spectacular to see, wish I was there! I like a rainbow as an additional detail!

The sky seems a bit noisy, is this due to the conversion to jpg? either way I won't be using this to influence my voting.

Also I always imagined lavender fields to be a move blueish purple colour than this almost red colour, may I ask what time of day it was?

    Like the concept; right on theme; can't quite put my finger on it, but it needs something compositionally to move it to top level (like a worker in the field, a water tower, a irrigation pump . . . ). Something to break up the redundancy.

    I love this photo! The lighting is very warm and cheery and really makes you want to step right in to the picture.
