Very beautiful light and good composition.
Your title is perfect for what you've presented. Well done.
I'm not sure whether it's just me & my old eyes, but the more I look at it, the lighter the BG seems to become - it is almost as if light is streaming into the composition. I like the two black diagonal twigs (?) cutting through your grass heads. They contrast nicely.
It's possible that a slightly smaller crop might work, so that the heads are not 'dwarfed' in the shot, but for me, this is a very good well composed shot with nicely subdued tones. If you want to try the crop, try 1/2 inch off the top & left hand side & 1 inch off the bottom.
I like it as is. It's wonderful. =)
Kate, looking at it again, I'd leave it exactly as it is. Splendid
Lovely composition Katy. Well done
I'd leave it as it is too. Delicate and intriguing. Good shot.
I wouldn't do much to it either. I certainly wouldn't change the composition.
Having said that, however (!) I've uploaded a mod. in which I've de-saturated the green slightly and brightened the rest using curves which has increased the dark moodiness of the shot.
I also sharpened it.
It's not intended to be an improvement, more of an alternative.
Hope it's OK.
Thank you everyone. Bren I like your suggestions and am going to use them and compare. I find it hard to compare on here as I can't see them both at the same time. Katy
This is the kind of shot I have been trying to get right whenever the opportunity presents itself, which is not very often. I think you have got it exactly right; not only that but a tighter crop would provide a different, but equally good image. The dark bacckground suits it perfectly to my mind, whether it be cropped or not.
Have you considered converting it to monochrome? Not that there is anything wrong with doing it in colour, but mono would present a different take on the same thing. It's a lovely image anyway.
Just about to play with it Canon so will have a go at mono too.
Very simple and compositionally and technically well done. I would simply leave it alone - not earth shattering in impact, but indicative of knowledge and skill.
