Not the best image, but I've had my SLR for a week and it's done nowt but rain, (almost), and I had to test the lenses / metering etc..
Taken close to Stokesley.
I need to get the hang of processing RAW now, (another learning curve).

It's good to see you back, Andrew. I hope you're OK.

Welcome to the wonderful world of "trying to get the hang of RAW processing"! It's a struggle (I'm still struggling) but I'm sure it's worth it.

Surprisingly, what I find most striking about this image is not the bale but that impressive wide-angle sky and the detail in the foreground grass. Mind you, it wouldn't be the same without that bale!

Thanks folks.
Billy, noted but it was nearly dark and I don't like playing too much.
Ian, fine thanks, after all the running up and down, although my father died, (I was up north to spread the ashes), its nice to be almost back to normal, although trying to catch up with the work backlog on top of this weekend visit meant driving 1700 miles this last week.
..and Simon, as it was mainly a test image for the 16mm, to determine sharpness at the edges, (I've seen a lot of disparaging remarks on examples of this lens), I have to say that I am not disappointed.
Regards
Andy

wonderful detail in the fore' the prolonged exposure makes the appearence of the sky a little soft, very good overall indeed.

Good composition Andy. It's not easy to get a different view on a well used theme but you've done well here.

I wouldnt run it through photoshop to add yellow. I think the colour is fine just as it is. It almost has a frosty feel to it, which I really like.

You will get the hang of RAW in no time Andy!
