Overall I like the composition with the new snow in the foreground and the grasses in the corner. The image seems a little dark in the foreground and that's almost a third of the image. Also the focus on the gold grasses which are a main subject is soft.   Posted: 01/16/2020 17:07:36

When I first saw this image, I thought it was an ocean beach scene until I saw the title and looked again. It is an interesting subject and I like the leading lines, texture and shapes you captured. I agree that the right corner is a little dark and the grass in the upper right is a little soft. You may consider trying to re-crop to eliminate the black spot on the left side.   Posted: 01/19/2020 08:27:27

I agree with both Janice and Walter. The image did invoke memories of time spent in North Dakota. Unlike most people, I believe the photo needs to tell a story or invoke a feeling. Your photo did that for me.

I find this a really interesting image which is enhanced by your composition. Agree with the other suggestions that the grass could be sharper and the right side a little lighter   Posted: 01/27/2020 00:35:24

This is a typical midwest prairie winter scene, windy and harsh. At the time, partly sunny, but clouds swarmed in, a storm is coming. I have thought to take it at much faster shuttle speed, but decide to just take it as such to show case a bit of windy open field look. :)
p.s. A sunny blue sky day, turn to dark cloud, raining in 15 minutes. This shot in this 15 minutes. A nature image with blue sky, heavy cloud, swinging grass, snow on the ground.
Thanks for all comments.   Posted: 01/27/2020 09:49:16
