Jenne Farm by Tom Johnson

November 2020 - Jenne Farm

About the Image(s)

This is Jenne Farm. The most photographic farm(s) in America. Budweiser did a commercial of this Farm. It also appeared in parts of the Forrest Gump movie and Funny Farm Movie. An Old timer told me (also a great photographer)said that photographers use to line every fall to photograph this image. Because of the covid-19 scare this year-2020, I was the only person/photographer there. Vermont residents say that the fall Peepers were not out this year. They also sell amazing PURE maple syrup.
My settings were: Nikon d850, Nikon zoom 24-120 f/4; shot at 24mm. F/22@ISO 64

Wow, this is some shot! What a place!
Please tell us about your post-processing, particularly if you applied any adjustment to color or sharpness--or was this fantastic view "as taken"? Thanks.   Posted: 11/04/2020 12:44:21

Thank you Steve! After doing all my basic adjustments in photoshop, I took the image in the NIK collections- Color effects Pro 4. I used Glow and Detail. What helped too, was the rain before the shoot there. Rain gives an added natural saturation to the leaves. I love that is was an overcast day too. Too much sun creates shadows.   Posted: 11/04/2020 17:37:42

It is a beautiful scene and I can understand why it is so popular with photographers. I like the way you enhanced the exposure, but I feel the Glow and Detail is a little bit too much and over processed. I would like a more realistic feel to the scene.   Posted: 11/19/2020 18:13:30

Thank you Kathy. After submission of the image, I realize I went a little over on the processing. I will redo to make more realistic. Thanks for your honesty.   Posted: 11/20/2020 09:03:15

What a beautiful scene. I also like your revised version better, although I might have the tendency to retain some of that dark sky in the original. An eye-pleasing composition.   Posted: 11/23/2020 07:12:50

What a beautiful fall scene. I like the less processed better as well. I do like the colors that "pop".
