Many thanks for your kind comments on the La Rochelle harbour traffic. Haven't been around a lot as work had the better of me.
Special thanks to Carol G for the UA.

This is *not* a crop. Took it in 30x24mm size. I used to love 4x5" or my pentax 6x7 for all sorts of things

I love the image, Annette!SmileSmile
I would probably have cropped the top 25% to alter the picture aspect.
I could be wrong!

A crop does indeed work but it's also beautiful as it is.

Think I'm going with your crop, Annette. A wonderful 'big sky' image, but with lovely textures and shadows on the land as well.

Isn't it wonderful how we are all so different with different ideas? Personally I would crop out the ploughed field in the foreground and leave this as a magnificent skyscape with only a minimal reference to the land.

First instinct was too much sky but when viewed in normal - I realised it's all about the sky, so
no it doesn't need cropping. The light is the f/g grassy field and raking across the ploughed field
is lovely. An excellent landscape Annette.

That's a beauty, Annette! The light on the land really makes the image for me and the colour is superb. While the sky is equally magnificent it appears, on my monitor, to have been worked a bit more heavily and might benefit from a bit of noise reduction but it's difficult to say on a file this size. I'd love to have taken something like this. Congratulations!
