I went over to the Lavender fields at Shoreham to check out the condition of the Lavender this year. This particular field was not looking quite as tidy as in previous years but with such a dramatic sunset as a backdrop it would have been rude not to have taken a few shots.

Super colours all round.
The Lavender rows contrast so well with that 'sky on fire'

Super Derek.

Just back from hols and catching up on 100s of pages of postings! Incredible drama in the strong colours and shapes. I like the way the cloud fomations echo the lavender strips. The FG movement also adds to the energy in the image. Maybe jsut a touch bright in the centre but it would be so difficult to hold back that sun without making the rest of the image completely underexposed so I think you've done an excellent job!

I had a 3 and a 2 stop filter holding back the sky when I took the shot and still needed to do some work in photoshop to reduce the brightness of the central area Alan.
Looking at the image again I think the Lavender could do with a little more contrast and brightness.
