A beautifully simple shot, the colours are wonderful! It's not often there is a single tree in the middle of a field, but when there is it makes a fantastic photograph! Smile

I can see what you mean. Perhaps a bit of subconscious influence crept in??

Lovely colour and simplicity. The angle of the light has really picked up the furrows of the field, helping the 'folding' of the land. It's lovely but it does have that cold feel to it despite the sunlight. I think there may be a square crop in it too, if you start from the top right corner of the frame and drag down until you centre the tree on the vertical axis. Gives less grass but the green is so bright I think it survives and possibly gives a more 'fine art' feel, not that that is better, just a different version. Smile

Beautiful simplicity - like the way the green and blue compliment each other.

Yes I think that would work extremely well Alan. Thanks for the tip. I also did a stitched panorama that I will upload at some time.

This is a well spotted and simple image that has impact. There are a lot of different images in here with various crops that would all work well. But this is a great start. PSmile

A beautiful curvaceous landscape, beautifully composed with wonderfully illuminated colour. The isolated tree making for a great focal point and added interest. "A great photograph Derek"

The simplicity of this shot belies the effort put into it regarding the time of day, composition, crop, in fact everything culminating in this shot. It deserves to be big and hung on a wall.

The angle of light gives some lovely striations on the field. Simple and very effective, Derek.

This is a clean crisp image which looks deceptively simple, but it needed that particular angle of light to highlight the furrows to give depth and texture to that expanse of land. Excellent positioning of the tree. Lovely landscape work Derek.

Superb Derek - the light is just right to provide texture in the drilled cereal field - lovely.
