About the Image(s)

D800E Sigma 24-105 ISO 400, F11, 1/2500, 1/640, 1/160 sec. Cropped and tweaked contrast in PS 2021. Aurora 2018 for the blend.
The purpose was to get detail in the sky and shady side of the plants. There is movement due to wind. Just got the camera back, today, from Nikon Service. Hopefully no one finds any dust on the sensor, after the $200.00 and something Nikon charged to clean this beast. It needed a bath after 8 years of service.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

I like how the image reads left to right.

The blend is nice, perhaps a little more light in the shadows.
The upper right trees are ghosted, so perhaps increase the ghosting   Posted: 07/07/2021 14:48:27

Nice natural colors and a good blend with the exception of the ghosting Lisa noted in the near trees against the sky.   Posted: 07/11/2021 19:32:05

Very natural and nice landscaping, is this your backyard?   Posted: 07/19/2021 11:41:14

The foreground grass and front side of a shared berm are ours. The background is land being purchased by a neighbor. The plan is to board and pasture horses. I am ok with that. I can (maybe) sell a horse photo, better than more suburban sprawl. The Aspen tree on the left took a beating from a windstorm, last week. It's not quite so pretty anymore.   Posted: 07/19/2021 11:55:28

Lots of that urban sprawl here in FL!   Posted: 07/19/2021 11:59:53

A pleasant scene of the color on and near your home. You accomplished your idea of the sky and shadows of the plants. I use both Auora 2019 and Photomatix and the latter has a slide you can move to the right to eliminate the ghosting you have from the movements of the trees in the wind.   Posted: 07/20/2021 21:49:10
