I like this beautiful scenery. It reminds me the place where I grew up.Great choice of the timing to get the complementary colors ( red and green). The light on the vineyard is perfect. You were able to get a foreground , mid ground and background to achieve a Grand landscape. I just have a problem with the colors of the sky on the right top of the image. It looks very hot to me ( maybe the highlights were blown out). The use of a filter or a HDR technique might help in this case. Overall it is a place where I would love to be.   Posted: 01/04/2022 17:45:00

What a very nice landscape. I like the variety of layers crossing the horizon at different angles. The complimentary green and red coupled with the variety of textures is very soothing. Personally, I like the way you presented the sun and the shadows reflect the morning theme. The tonal layering is most probably a function of 16 bit verses 32 bit processing but to me it adds a little surreal quality. Very nice.   Posted: 01/05/2022 09:28:34

I agree that this is a lovely and well composed landscape with a colorful foreground, an interesting middle and mountains in the background. For me, it is a bit too dark. I brightened it and cropped a bit to take away some of the sky and left side.   Posted: 01/06/2022 22:13:05

I agree with both of you Kurt and Art the image could be a bit too dark, but never forget we are watching these images, each one of us, in different machines and screens what you think is a bit too dark for me was a bit to bright. If I remember correctly we had the same troubles with the printed images. Last century remember?   Posted: 01/18/2022 11:48:00
