Beautiful landscape. well taken thanks for sharing .saeid
Composition, is the word crossed my mind first. Try to remove the closer grass and focus on the field farther, the front field grass has distracted your camera and lens. Exposure value looks a bit high use 0, -1 would be much better. Annnd 55-250mm is not at allll a good lens for landscapes and a beautiful scene like this! You need a lens to get you wide field! Ironically I use it too! in fact my final upload is taken with 55-250mm as you see there, it's meant for another purpose, close up. like the idea, well done, hmm a lens that goes good for this image is 17-40mm or 18-55mm! Practice and you'll get it right, I know
That's really useful, many thanks! I've got a 28 - 105mm but seem to get better results with this one, see 'Preseli weatherrrr' which I uploaded a couple of days ago. I guess it's just practice, as you say and since it's a glorious day I think I'll head out now. Thanks again :o)
Now that lens should be much better, would love to see more uploads, plz. message me, would like to see them!
Almost forgot, have you heard of the "Rule of third"? Google Rule of third, if you got a dramatic sky with partial clouds... you can divide your image to 3 parts and position 2 thirds on the sky! try it, it could be good, don't know, must try and practice I guess!
Actually this is not too far away from being a much stronger landscape. The light across the image is quite warm and the diagonal of the wall cutting through the main part of the image is quite appealing and takes your eye up through the picture.
The out of focus foreground is a distraction and I feel you would have been better coming higher up over the top of this grass.
There is almost a balance of thirds and coming up higher perhaps you could have used the full fence as your foreground interest and on the first third. The middle third being the fields rolling into the distance and the top third the sky where you have captured some lovely detail.
My final point here is that some gentle tinkering with layers in photoshop would make so much more of that lovely sky - increase saturation and contrast.
Lastly I disagree with astyag on the lens comment. It is accepted that for landscapes the preferred choice is wideangle however telephoto lenses are extremely useful in landscape photography. The narrower perspective also flattens the perspective which in itself can be a really good effect. Particularly, for example, if photographing mountain or hill ranges and it pulls the peaks in together.
Use the lens that gives you the composition you want but remember using your feet to change perspective is the best way to tinker with your composition.
Thanks Paul, I'll have a go with PS and reframing and see what I can do. Will also use my feet in future, lol. Sue
