Simply stunning Derek! Lavender fields are a joy in their own right, but with this sky, you've made them something else!! The light and detail in the foreground are brilliant. No doubt in giving you my UA today!! Smile

I think I'd trim about a third off the left of the image to balance things up a bit...

Nice work, though.

It is a great location. If you have the chance to get there in the next week or so PM me. I would be happy to meet up and do another shoot there.

I agree that LH side looks a bit too dark Julian, which is odd because the tiff file definitely looks brighter. It was very dark under that cloud but I will do a mod.

Thanks for the C&C's everyone and particular thanks to Ann, Cor and Sarah for their UA's. They are gratefully received.

Wonderfully dramatic with those low, threatening clouds and the pre-downpour light. I especially like the converging lines of the lavender and the way the light is gently highlighting the tips of the plants.
Congrats on your well-earned badges Derek.

V1 wasn't shabby but V2 just shades it now. Congrats on all the awards Derek.

I have to agree with Julian here, the left weakens the composition slightly, but it's an image any of us would one wall space for. That smell brings back memories of old aunties and horse hair chairs.

Superb image, Derek. I like dark tones so I'm going for moody no 1.

Thanks again everyone. I have a few more to upload but I will try not to subject the site to 'lavender overload'.
Many thanks for the UA Yung. Very much appreciated my friend.

Strange isnt it. I like the slope of the horizon on this one. Ithink its because we can see more of the hill on the left showing us that it is indeed the lay of the land. Like all three but think this is the most dramatic.

Ian
The hole image just seems to be beautifully balanced.
