Firstly a very huge thank you to you all for taking the time out to look at, comment and add your votes to yesterdays upload. Your comments provided me with much pleasure for which I thank you again.

A special mention goes to Phillip -H and Humblebee(Carol) for presenting me with their most welcomed and appreciated Users Awards.

Todays upload was captured just a short while ago on a rather miserable overcast day, which on reflection is a typical day on the peninsula.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead, for me it is a trip to the Turkish Barbers for a Hair Cut, Shave and Hot Towel Massage.

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Really good use of perspective to draw the eye in, the line of telegraph wires add a good focal point

A great photo bringing back many good memories of my childhood on a farm Smile These days they don't plough much anymore - just scratch the surface with a sharp pen deep enough to plant the seeds . Works much better and costs much less I believe !! Hope the haircut is awesome Smile

This is a stunning picture Nathan, the telephone poles and the plough lines leading us directly to the tractor in the distance creating greater interest, the subtle tone matches the fields textures incredibly well.. love it....

Beautifully atmospheric.

Three thoughts. First, a little more contrast, while not true to the traditional "grey day" might make for even more impact.

I can see the join where you have burned in the sky... I know this is a bugger of a problem in the darkroom, and had sort of suspected that it's easier in PS (if you know what you're doing, as you do). Maybe a line of darkness along the top of the land woudl be less obvious than a line of light at the bottom of the sky...

Most serious - the title grates. While it's a literally accurate description, the mood of the hymn is far more scudding clouds, bright sun, birds wheeling in the sky behind the tractor. It is not, in any way, a grey or bleak song!

But if carping over the title is the most serious thing, it's clearly a fine picture! Click!

Re Dudler's comment above. Quite often in real life you'll see a brighter line where the sky meets the lands on the horizon. If the mist is hanging low it will be denser low down so will be brighter. I don't find it unnatural at all.
