Flower arranging

By Oliverpants
A Lady in Lordington Lavender , well I'm back after a little break, due to family commitments, I will try and catch up on all the great shots I have missed.

I have been meaning to go to Lordington Lavender for years, but I always seem to miss the 4 days per year that they open.

Its a bit of a steep hill for my chair to go down - James makes a good anchor man, but well worth it.
They only open between 10-5 so daylight shots only, but the bright sun would dance across the field as it came out from behind the clouds.

Hope you like it.
Ann

Ann, this is one of the bext shots I have seen of lavender and I think this will do you well.

The horison looks like it needs a little levelling but if I am honest I dont even think you need the horizon, I would crop it?

Superb!

Really superb composition, the lighting is also great. The inclusion of person bending down makes it more special Ann.

Very nice shot. The composition is well thought out and the lady just gives it that something extra making this a top shot IMHO.
I also think it works without the sky but like the original as well.
Well seen. (Which is the most important thing!)

Just superb, Ann. When I see images like this I always think it's from the south of France. I had no idea we cultivated lavender in this scale at home.

Outstanding! Love the lines of Lavender running away into the distance and the beautiful touch of sunlight kissing the flowers! The figure, for me, is that extra special touch lifting this to a really special shot. Like the mod minus the sky, but rather like the composition you selected originally.

I think this works very well. I like the composition and colour. I'm not sure about the sky though, I feel it is too heavy and the colour doesn't look quite right to me. I've posted a mod for your approval.

A fantastic composition using the converging lines with such lovely colour in the lavender. The person adds so much interest and works really well. I was actually just going to suggest the same crop as thevalleywalker's mod, I think it has so much impact without the sky.

Perhaps the sky is a bit heavy Ann but the figure and the glimpses of light make it an enchanting image.

Hi Ann - I'm so pleased I've come back to EPZ or I would have missed this absolute stunner! This image is just fantastic! I love the converging lines of the lavender disappearing into the distance and that beautiful touch of soft sunlight gently caressing the lavender. To me this image works equally well with or without the sky and the figure adds that little extra touch by providing a focal point. Now you have straightened the horizon I think it is perfect and I absolutely love it!! Barb

A beautiful summer landscape, what a stunning sight this must have been to behold. I've seen lavender fields at Snowshill in Gloucestershire but nothing like this vast expanse which stretches for as far as the eye can see
this is the best such rich colours and a lovely sweeping vista
