Mr Hansen, that's a brilliant image! No UA available but it doesn't need one from me. It speaks for itself - simply outstanding. I would resist any temptation to crop so that the crests of the furrows lead from the corners as it currently has greater impact with that long run in to the lone tree.

Magic! Pov, lead, composition, light: right time of day to get one side of the furrows in shadow.

The crest of the furrows just draw the viewer to the lone tree, it's a fantastic lead in, wonderful depth.
Definitely deserving of the coveted EC and the host of awards. Have another badge, super image Derek.

Great shot Derek - its the simplicity I really like along with nice detail in the fg soil. I've been searching locally for something similar but without much luck.

It had to be you...

Some serious photography here Derek, a signature image from you as ever, top drawer quality and composition.

Can't add anything else really; strong verticals and lead in lines, focal point, colour is great; I think it would lose something as mono.

I saw this location driving over to my sisters after a shoot down at Camber Sands. I did a double take and slammed on the brakes. Potato planting seems to be rare in Kent so coming across the field in such perfect conditions was something I couldnt pass up. I checked in following years and potatoes were not planted again. The field now has a farm shop just beyond that horizon so has a large roof behind the tree from this angle.


Quote:Can't add anything else really; strong verticals and lead in lines, focal point, colour is great; I think it would lose something as mono.


I made the assumption that it would look quite good in mono but I was wrong and you were right. After trying several conversions I came to the conclusion that it was stronger in colour.
