Stunning image Ade - that sky is tremendous
Ray
I'm amazed that we both posted so close and with such similar compositions, from different parts of the country.

All the very best Ade,

Very dramatic Ade. All those different strips of land and road converging in the distance adds such a strong perpsective. The cloud formation also helps pull the eye into the shot. Even better IMO if the field on the right was full of rape too ... perspective plus symmetry would be a heady mix. I'd do a mod and try it out but I'm at "work".

powerful and very effective, great tones

for me the differing crops on both sides of road are better than being the same, makes my eyes switch from both sides rather than following lead in

Like it mate. Different crops doesn't bother me either. One minor crit is the shot is ever so slightly off to one side [more left weighted] but as simple and graphical as a shot needs to be.

You look quite high up, were you on the car?? Wink

I'm one of those people who extend their tripod legs fully on occasion Paul Smile

I cropped the shot to the vertical centre went sthrugh the end of the road - so I think it's the yellow that's optically heavier giving that impression.

cheers folks

Thumbnail just jumped out of the page at me, great perspective, love the vanishing point Smile and the contracst between the rape seed on the left and the ploughed field on the right. I like the height you have used to help emphasise the length of the road, so many people would have gone low and created a tunnel. Great shot Smile

The differing field states work very well in this. Rape on both sides would have made for a good shot, but I think this is a cut above and very effective.

Neil

This is surely digitally manipulated (and I don't know where tweaking brightness, contrast, saturation etc stops and manipulation starts) but I've never seen a local threatening sky like this Adrian... The impact is strong, the image good, am I wrong in my interpretation?

It's excellent work, I just want to understand what has (or has not) gone on!

Mike - there is some magic here, but too much to explain really. It's not as manipulated as you think though, have you ever used filters? 5 stops of ND grad and you get this effect

cheers everyone
25 May 2008 3:40PM
Thanks Adrian - I've not used filters in recent decades (perhaps avoided them) but maybe the time is right to start experimenting - this effect demonstrates the opportunity that I'm missing!
