Very nice shot with great colors. I love the primary red, yellow, and blue. And the dark lines in the field and the undulations are amazing. Can you say more about post-processing?   Posted: 09/09/2023 09:19:53

I like how this photo conveys the distance to the horizon by having the tractor in the foreground and the trees in the very far distance. And I am amazed that you could get such a broad field and such definition from your car. I wonder what the settings were on your camera, and whether you did any post-processing.   Posted: 09/09/2023 20:49:50

Thank you so much. I have decreased the texture to make it appear softer, removed most of the shadows so that all the lines appear and increased the clarity so that they stand out. The tractor was stopped and I took the shot at 1/800   Posted: 09/12/2023 17:44:05

A beautiful image with great color, lighting, and composition. The changes you made going for a softer mellow look are really good. I find the empty sky a little too much negative space. You could crop it a little or find a replacement sky from another image you took and replace it in Photoshop.   Posted: 09/20/2023 11:01:39

thank you so much, You are right about the sky being too empty, but I don't usually use Photoshop. Normally I don't like to add things that are not in the photo   Posted: 09/21/2023 18:43:58

I also do not much like to add things. That particular sky gave that specific light to the scene, whereas another sky might have rendered the lighting differently. I think one easy solution would be to simply reduce the amount of sky by cropping down from the top to give less negative space that would still be harmonious with the scene.   Posted: 09/21/2023 19:10:32
