Evening before the storm II

By lucinka

This is another photo that was taken on one of these levely spring evenings when the colors are even stronger. It was very beautiful combination of yellow field at time of sunset with approaching storm.

This photo was taken as you see it. I have only increased the contrast of the colors. I was thinking to remove the tree on the right side as it would create better composition (thanks for your great point Nic) however I didnt do it.

Cracking light and well seen. Is this 'as captured' or have you used some PS'ing to enhance things? Either way it would make a cracking fine art print for the wall.

My only suggestion for improvement would be to remove the far right tree which is cut in half by the right frame of the image. It's a little distracting and I think would tidy the composition up considerably if it was cloned out.

Lovely bold colours and strong shapes. However, it appears to be a little over-sharpened. I also wonder what it would have been like had you mangaed to isolate a small group of trees in the frame - of course, this might not have been possible!

Very strong image, however you look at it!

It does look a tad oversharpened. However. This is one terrific shot and I wish it were mine. (Envy)
It would have pride of place on my wall.
