Such an everyday bit of landscape, but the lighting in this makes it so special. Good work, Gary.

A truly spectecular shot Gary. Is this the field out by Lurganare??
I made an attempt last week to go there at sunset, but when I got close to the rapeseed it seemed all wilted so I left it, as I wanted a nice blooming shot. Excellent work again.

Lovely work Gary and deserving of an award IMO. That sky is tip top mate as is the composition. Processing, out of the top drawer as per ...

Shortlisted this one ... great stuff.

Your best since your 'A frosty new year' for me.

Just lovely. Nothimng more to say than that really. Super stuff.
21 May 2009 5:27PM
if I have time? of course this needs to be viewed large.
HC should come your way.
if anything, the area around the sun seems a little powerful, and could maybe be toned down a little (or it could be my PC playing with meSmile).
in the water (front), could you get some more color variations in there?
all in all a terrific photo, and as mentioned, I feel this should deserve an HC, for pure visual pleasure

But its still a fantastic image!!!
21 May 2009 9:36PM
The rather special light - and your processing, too, perhaps - make this a very special image - almost surreal. Carol
