I like this photo in portrait format for the depth of image it suggests to me. However I wonder if there is too much green field and sky. I have cropped the second version but still feel happier with the portrait format.

I'd appreciate any views or comments on the cropping and also the picture as a whole.

Thanks,
Tony

some nice greens and sky,a curves adjustment to parts of the image would bring the image out more, this sort of image would look even better with a lower viewpoint to capture a few daisies closer up, i think this image would look best in a slighly more narrower portrait view, and maybe even squeeze a panoranic out of it too, G

Hi Tony,
I was on the same wavelength as grainge73 and have produced a mod for you in panoramic. However I feel your portrait format has a lot going for it as it is what I would call a "how you see it" shot which is naturally well balanced.

Gary and Grainge, thanks for the input. All the crops look good but the portrait crop, whilst subtle does improve on the original I think and that format is still my favourite.
Tony

Edit: Just seen your post also Stuart, thanks.

There is a bit too much green and too much cyan in the sky easily corrected with curves (set blend mode to colour so contrast is unaffected and select white, mid & black points using the eye droppers - enough in this case to just select a white point in the clouds).

Thanks for the advice Andy. Don't have PS, just PSE but I can see what you mean about the colour. Whilst I don't like auto anything, auto colour cast correction does the same as you recommend on this occasion.

Thankyou David for the comments. I'll take them on board for future similar shots.
