Award Shortlist   


By sneazy  
Probably the last from my 'light' images taken near to home.

This is the opposite to a previous upload where the sun has lit up the foreground field undulations, whereas before the light had touched the field further back.

I have used auto colour in PS2 and I get a different feel to the previous upload where I used the white and black pipettes to colour correct.....Using the pipettes and threshold levels gave a bluer sky than the CS2 auto colour......I think the original Raw file was the blue tone too.

Used a small amount of dodging and burning in the sky.

1/8th second exposure @ f22. Circular Polariser.

I like the shape of the field, and the way the bright sunlit greens contrast with the grey sky. Chris

A wonderful shot... the light makes this scene, brings the contours to life and provides the contrast with the sombre sky. Excellent. *click*

Great shot. Like the contrast between the brooding sky and the brightness of the foreground fields. Dave.

Very impressive, Mark. You've captured the light as it plays on those undulating fields beautifully, and the stormy cloud serves as a superb backdrop.

Great colours and shapes. The stormy sky is fantastic, and the tree on the sky line is in just the right place.
