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.
Really good use of perspective to draw the eye in, the line of telegraph wires add a good focal point
The furrows lead the eye in nicely to this well composed image Nathan
The toning works so well with this image, Nathan. It's great! I hope the Turkish barber accomplishes a great job as well.
Bleak but absolutely first class with a great lead in using the telegraph poles and the detail in the field so obvious to the viewer, well done Nathan

That's true Jim, so do the power lines, that's right Nathan pamper yourself some thing rotten lol. -7c. here I'm not budging, have a good one, regards Leon.
it looks so much like in the lower Charente a bit further west., very desolate on a grey day.
A great photo bringing back many good memories of my childhood on a farm 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
Looks as if it could have been taken here in the Fens.
The textures look terrrific, Nathan. A very atmospheric capture reinforced by the toning.
I've just returned from the hairdressers, Nathan, but I wasn't offered a hot towel massage Carol
....the good seed on the land (havent heard that since primary school lol)
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....
Cracking shot Nathan, it does look very bleak, have a great day
super infinity..love those telegraph poles
I have my own in-house barber...I have to trust her with the electric clippers though!!!!
The good seed on the ground...............
Love the tones and textures Nathan.............. Lovely shot!
the soil reminds me of chocolate ready brek..........Mmmmmmmmmmm
Good use of the lines in the composition
A quick back and sides but no sausage sandwich today, Nathan!
The overall toning here fits wit the prevailing weather conditions.........there is a bleakness to the image that fits with mid winter.
Excellent composition and processing Nathan.
Shows the weather well Nathan! although colder now
like the sepia to this bleak shot
nice image of a rural setting in wintertime Nathan
Very rural Nathan, never see this in our location. The barbers sounds good !!
Wonderful image - love the lines! We see this here as we live in a village - a freezing one today!!!
Bleak and very realistic - well captured Nathan - hope you enjoy your trip out
love the comp nathan brilliant detail a belter nice one
A bleakness that matches the state of the world at the moment! Let's hope, like this field come Springtime everything changes for the better!
Love this rural scene Nathan with it's it's earthy toning.
The title takes me back to Sunday School.
Simple, satisfying. I like that row of pylons... (Can't remember ever typing that before!)
The toning gives an earthy, organic feel.
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.
A good sound landscape Nathan telling us a lot about the area and agriculture.
Love the textures and tone of this one, Nathan.
A great composition with all the lines heading to a spot out there on the horizon--- all suggesting that there is a future somewhere out there with some birghtness--
This should grow into a crop beautifully!
Lilke the processing here Nathan.
And enjoy your little trip out.
(It is only now I realise not to take these liitle trips for granted and to enjoy them while you can !!)
A great composition with some lovely textures and tones
Lovely texture and perspective. The toning makes the image more powerful
Beautiful indeed.. very classic.
Thank you for the comment on the Retford town hall.. Are you interested in UFO? Have another click...
Great viewpoint and perspective, Nathan, a good job done here on the drab weather
Hope you enjoy being pampered...
Great composition using the line of telegraph pole wires and furrows pulling you into the picture, nice one Nathan.
Great perspective, superb.
Regards- SANJEEV -
The Turkish Barbers sounds heavenly hope you enjoy it. I love the tone to your image today it's lovely. Take care in this cold.
Nothing wrong with this Nathan, excellent composition and excellent exposure and lead in lines, nice one mate!
first class image well taken.
Superb Nathan what more can I say mate .
Love this Nathan the furrowa and the power lines seem to work together my man in perfect harmony
A nice low POV and the mono conversion is perfect for this image.
Lovely image - great textures
Nice image Nathan, great comp' and DOF, there is a lot of fields that have not and will not get ploughed for a long time because of the flooding, and food price's are going up because of it.
Nicely seen Nathan not a good day but we are getting used to it when that sun comes out we will be lost now this I could do with ..........the Turkish Barbers for a Hair Cut, Shave and Hot Towel Massage.
sounds great fancy some company. we could shoot the s
This is a fine image Nathan,
The low point of view and the toning make a great image Nathan!
A very powerful image, Nathan! Like it a lot!
Near enough straight furrows there Nathan, takes me back to my days of farming, looks like a John Deere tractor over yonder, Peter..
The bleakness adds a certain charm to the capture Nathan good one
Great vast landscape shot, Nathan. I love those lines AND those power lines going off into the distance. The toning suits this so well too
How unsurprising this image picked up a whole bucketfull of votes and comments. Its simplicity and directness are very powerful.
An excellent agricultural landscape which conveys the season of winter so well. Really stark, bare and atmospheric
Very nice texture in the field.
Simple but still a great shot
