About the Image(s)

While riding in the country, I spotted this farm and was drawn to the scene by the red truck parked by the barn and the nice sky. I straightened the photo and opened up the shadows and details and used a Topaz Glow Dream filter at a very low opacity to get the look I wanted. Settings: f/22, 1/100 sec., ISO 180 and 26 mm focal length.

A nice clean rural image! The colors are very pleasing. I like the complementary blue sky and orange-ish ground with the red truck and patches of green grass adding tints of different complementary colors. Nice composition with the roll of hay in the foreground, barn and truck in the mid-ground and trees and sky/clouds in the background. If I were to make any changes, I might try cropping a little moree off the right side to allow the taller silo to frame the right side of the image.   Posted: 10/01/2020 13:50:14

You certainly picked the right filter. The sharp focus and the "dreamy" look makes for a pleasing photo. There is almost a comforting feeling to the photo. As an old teacher, I would give you an A grade!   Posted: 10/02/2020 11:28:14

This image is very interesting. I could imagine it would make an excellent puzzle. The colors of the sky and buildings are bright and colorful. I like the dreamy glow. I do think that the image could use some contrast, especially in the grasses in front, but it doesn't need much. Well done!   Posted: 10/06/2020 18:43:14

very well positioned elements in this image, barn, silo, red car, fences, even the trees. Sky, cloud add points, great compositions.
A small observation, that next time, see if vary the camera height will give you a slightly different perspective. that prompt the silos to break out the tree line. Just wondering.

A very nice rendition of an iconic style country scene. It contains all the perfect elements.

An interesting, modern-day rural scene. The red truck adds a focus point. A calendar publishing company collecting images would want this picture.   Posted: 10/14/2020 10:54:14

It is a very beautiful landscape image. I enjoy to see the HDR style imaging. You have done a great job of post processing. I especially like the work on cloud formation.   Posted: 10/25/2020 05:44:35
