Good. I keep trying to do something like that, but it seems never to work properly.

Thanks Eric and Jeremy.  The farms in this area had the neatest crop rows I had ever seen.  I got
a couple of other images that have a nice geometric pattern.

Something that would benefit from a strong, graphic, black and white conversion.

The second one is very appealing (perhaps complete depth of field would have made it even stronger). Where is this location, Mark?

+1 to both.

Even a "verb" somewhere in the geometry to disrupt the pattern would make it even better.

Slobodan, I'll try your suggestion. 

Rajan, I originally went to Loess Bluffs National Wildlife Refuge in Missouri -- definitely worth a visit.  I then
visited what are known as the Loess Hills --  "the westernmost parts of Iowa and Missouri, and the easternmost parts of Nebraska and Kansas,
along the Missouri River."  The images I posted are from Nebraska (I believe).
 
langier, I added another image with a verb disrupter.

Thanks all for commenting.  I learn a lot by your suggestions and coimments.

What's that, a verb?

I like the one with the "verb," but I also like the "verb-free" ones. All three excellent.
