Dust bunny at 2 o'clock..........and a baby bunny at 3 o'clock Not sure that the FG is interesting enough - crop? Might clone out the little pylons too! Well you did ask!
PS I like it!!
lovely sky would take out the pylons
I, too, would clone out those hideous pylons! Otherwise a good image with a fabulous sky. Carol
The sky is lovely and good colour. That said I wouldn't clone out the pylons as there is nothing else to get your attention in the shot. You need some sort of focal point other than just the sky.
Scutter beat me to the dust bunnies, but I'd also leave the pylons in as they lead you through the pic
Great colours, I am unphased by the pylons, however I can see both points of view. Nice picture. Burnsie
Apart from the above, I would add that the foreground looks to be slightly oversharpened, and whilst the shot has a lot of nice bold colours, the light band just above the horizon does make for a short game of 'spot the filter,' especially with the darker band to the right of the bigger pylon. The graduation needs to be smoother, and closer to the ground.
Apart from at least six dust bunnies, yes six, I think this suffers from excessive f/g sharpening. This has the effect of making the flowers ( ? ) ( light points ) look very pixelated. In fact everything except the sky looks over-sharpened to me.
I don't mind the pylons, even if they aren't that picturesque, because they are part of the modern landscape and in this instance act as a focus within the composition. The main direction of the clouds also point to this area so act to guide the eye.
There seems to be a lack of f/g interest. The main f/g acts as a visual barrier ( IMO ) as it goes left to right across the image and doesn't allow the eye to enter the photo.
I think the sharpening should be more ordered throughout the photo so the f/g is sharper than the mid-ground and the mid-ground sharper than the b/g. This acts as a way of producing the effect of visual recession ( as does aerial perspective).
There appears to be a light line along the horizon produced by combining two different exposures into one picture. I think you need to use a smaller radius brush the closer you get to the horizon, in whatever photoshop programme you use, so you can eliminate this effect.
I think that's all
P.S. My typing is soooo slow.
Some odd TLC here - too much sharpening, slightly unfinished exposure merge, and no dust-removal! I like the pylons, and don't like landscapes that cut out important details that convey the reality of a place, however modern/annoying it may be - it's called life! Reckon they're a nice feature anyhow. The sky is wonderful, so foreground doesn't need to be too strong but it is a little inhibiting - perhaps cropping it slightly would increase attention on the sky. The light-line across the hills and horizon is a little distracting, and could be better done. The dust should go - only works to reduce the shot. Otherwise a lovely moody image conveying our impact on the land pretty serenely. Good stuff! Just work on the processing side of things a little.
