In addition to your cycle, photos must depict at least three of the eight elements listed...

... between 1 and 3 planes
... a variety of elevation
... variable vegetation
... lights
... trees or rocks that focus the attention
... animal presence
... roughness
... a harmonious sunset

Are man-made structures allowed? I don't think I have any touring pictures without bridges in them!

Not sure if it counts as a touring set-up, but the bike certainly gets around a bit in the video!
