Will the Summer Ever Come

By MattB1987    
It's been far too long since my last upload (which by the way won me a category in a competition at my camera club) anyway I made some time to do some editing of a photo I took last weekend. I started with a photo that I liked of some storm clouds looming toward this field of crops. I started in Lightroom and decided to have a look at some of the presets, I looked at the antique one and liked it so I then set upon making the edit my own.

With a few tweaks I then done a quite tight crop which I like, but then I went crazy and done a tighter one still! I will upload the first crop along with a mono version as I am still undecided.

Not a lot more to say about this photo, but I intend on get out and taking more photos this weekend and pull my finger out again.

Thank you for looking at my photo and of course all comments and critiques will be much appreciated.

Thanks again

A lovely set of images - v2 is my favourite as I like the inclusion of the extra bit of sky and the colour versions seem to show the light to its best advantage.

The colour versions are excellent, Matt. I can't honestly decide which is the stronger. The processing is top notch.

I like the colour versions but very difficult to choose between 1 and 2.

Monochrome forme wind in the barley is a great subject to photograph.

V2 for me - the extra crop on V1 has lost the impact the darker clouds gave.

a wonderful image, I love the toning and v2 has the extra bit of detail in that lovely storm sky so v2

the stormy colours are great in v2 but v3 has the edge for me!

Excellent processing and a really good photo to start with. I like the extra bit of sky on v2 and v3 as the darker clouds add to the brooding nature of the shot.

An impressive portfolio, I like your work.
