Yuanyang rice terraced fields (magical)
http://contests.fotki.com/contests/moment09/317354637.html
Yuanyang, located at Yunnan Province of southern China is famous for its stunning landscape of rice terraced fields. An early morning trip to see the sunrise is a must for every visitor to Yuanyang. That morning, when I was there, it was too foggy to expect a beautiful sunrise. As most of the photographers were packing up to leave, all of a sudden, the magical moment appeared, and here you go, a memorable shot that I was able to capture.
Had to use a gradual ND filter to balance the contrast.

Used HDR just to the right extent - not overdone.

Contest Crispness of Winter

My favorites (some winners, some underestimated, IMHO):
Winner: a fairy tale from Yosemite:

Srapada (Stan) 01-21- 2009: "Camera: Nikon D700, Exposure: 0.013 sec (1/80) , Aperture: f/5.3, Focal Length: 75 mm, ISO Speed: 320 , adjustments were made with Aperture 1.5. I was actually at the Valley View of Yosemite to shoot El Capitan and the Merced River. Yosemite is an extremely difficult location to shoot; in that so many iconic images have been shot there. I often look for the shot that I have not seen taken by anyone. The image submitted is the result."
