About the Image(s)

This image (“Prairie Storm”) was captured in northeast Wyoming this last month using a Canon 6D Mk II paired with a Tamron 24-70mm. Settings were: 1/500 sec., f/10 at 67mm and ISO 100. It was shot on tripod and processed initially in Lightroom followed with Luminar and then Topaz DeNoise. Numerous adjustments made at each turn. The photo was also cropped for composition.

I like the landscape, the colors and and how the fence leads me through the image to the dramatic sky. I think that sharpening the foreground and increasing the contrast would make it even stronger and more interesting.   Posted: 10/07/2020 09:01:29

Yes I like the colors that in a way they remind to me the colors of Tuscany, I like the pastoral scene, I like the sky with the lightning that to me looks like an "augmented sky." I changed the composition that to me looked a little bit "dispersive" but I wasn't able to adjust the colors that to me looked a bit too contrasty. I do not know id a different lens would have made the scene look differently. Nice image in any case.   Posted: 10/07/2020 13:46:24

Kurtis this photo makes me miss being out west. The colors are just beautiful together and if it were mine all I would just trim the bottom to make it a panorama. Very nice!

Kurtis, I really like your picture, especially after it was sharpened, a little more contrast on the left side and in the sky. Think Marge did a great job turning it into a panorama. To me, the fence takes the eye to the buildings and dramatic sky. And keeps you there, looking around at other details. Wonderful image!   Posted: 10/14/2020 09:21:47
