Good Evening Guys,hope you are all well.

Here is something very different from me,an attempt at a landscape and certainly my first go at processing in PS......EEEEEEEEEEk.

Whilst out walking George locally I have been keeping an eye on a opportunity to photograph this scene which is less than five minutes from home,I wanted to catch it in the sunset..........so at about 20:45 it looked promising so grabbed the camera and off I trotted to try and photograph this scene....phew since arriving home had a go at processing it..........please please let me know what you think good or bad has I'm learning you know.

I must thank you all for all the support and C&Cs,so very grateful.

Please view this large if you have the time,thanks a lot.

Wishing you all a great day tomz.

This is actually a very good image, I think you might have been better off slightly lower. However the sun is catching the petals beautifully & if this is your first effort at landscape, God help us all. Regards Peter.
