I find the lighting very pleasing and I like the blast of color in the foreground. In my opinion the depth of field is good and the various layers add to the sense of depth.

I find the building/chimney in the center on the horizon a little distracting. Have you considered adding vignettes to the corners? I think that would help strengthen the image.   Posted: 08/12/2019 09:27:43

would try it, however, that won't do much to the distraction, would it? or should I consider a different crop, let me see if I got some room on the bottom of the frame.. Thanks   Posted: 08/12/2019 09:56:20

Charlie, sorry I wasn't clear. The building in the center I was referring to would need to be cloned out or at the highlight toned down a little. The vignette would do nothing to the building, but I think would help focus the viewer into the center of the image.

yeh, thanks for clarify that. Also, I wasn't sure about how strictly are the rules between nature+ vs nature, if it's ok to remove/clone out some pixels... guess in nature+, we're are ok with those minor adjustment. ..

I like the lighting. I am especially fond of the way it is hitting the front flowers. The deep depth of field works well for this shot.

Looks like Walter already mentioned the distracting building in the horizon.   Posted: 08/12/2019 14:54:53
