Nice one, i like the idea of the, no sky part. I always remember when i started out taking snaps, one experienced guy said to me if the sky doesn't work for you get shot of it, and this image shows, sometimes you just don't need it.
only small critique I would give is that I'd have preferred if you'd move the pov up very slighty to cut ou the horizontal line at the edge of the field and so bring more of those gorgeous trees into view.
thanks Simon! in principle I agree there, in actuality that wasn't possible - above the top of the frame here was just bland midday sky.. I framed it to give the "illusion" of a forest stretching off for as far as the eye can imagine, when in reality if it was framed any higher that illusion would have been lost
thanks mate, yep, agreed.. I was aware while shooting it that it was pretty much the worst time of day I could be shooting it, but had lots of other shots to take and wasn't about to sit in one spot for 4 hours... I'd never been to the location before but now I've "scouted" it hopefully I can reshoot later in the week a little bit earlier in the morning
Interesting shot mate, composed well and everything just the colour seems a bit weird to me. Maybe it's just the mid day light, re-shoot in the sunset to get some more saturation and golds through those background trees
thanks dude yeah I agree about the light, damn near midday isn't exactly best for landscapes but I didn't have time to wait around for the 4 hours for the light to turn golden on this occasion.. was a good spot though, hopefully I can get back there earlier or later someday soon before the colours are all gone
hahah.. i cant wait till friday or monday. ill be getting a new computer. there is soo much delay on this computer its ridiculous! When i start typing.. i want it to show up on my screen.. not 30 seconds later. LAME!
