I think it's very fine landscape, William. Love the way you handled the mid-tones in PP. Exposure must have been dead on to capture everything that was there.

Wonderful image William.
A fine advertisement for a very pretty part of the world.
The details of this composition, clouds, shadows, patterns of fields and tree lines clearly identify this image as the product of an accomplished image-maker.

Congratulations.

Hi William,

Great subject, lovely weather, classical composition. Post-processing indicates a certain intention and style (dimmed and muted, I would say).

But you knew you couldn't get away from at least someone finding something to nitpick: Wink

I would like to see slightly more detail in the foremost group of threes. I would like to see slightly more crispness (highlights) in the clouds.

Maybe both can be achieved by, say, 1/3 or 1/2 f-stop more exposure? Maybe that would mess up mid-tones, which appear ok? Maybe just playing with shadows/highlights?

On the other hand, I seem to contradict myself, don't i? I first recognized a certain (deliberate?) style, then nitpick about it? In other words, if everything is exactly how you wanted it, then feel free to disregard my comments.

Hi William,

(dimmed and muted, I would say).



I take your point Slobodan. I went back to the file in Lightroom and it seems brighter there which might have been "lost in translation".

Thanks again for all the comments.

I would make the dark greys a little bit darker (so that the meadow gains a bit in contrast) while leaving the light tones almost unaffected. This would give it a bit more impact. Right now, the contrast between the calm, quiet foreground and the glorious, almost radiating background is note quite there yet, a bit indifferent. This contrast makes the image interesting and perhaps the image could be improved by accentuating these both sides.
