Wow! Very rich and deep colors, including the brown of the abandoned implement. I like how the clouds are very wispy and not overpowering. I also like that tiny bit of green foliage springing up from the implement. Very pleasing!

Regards, Chris

A pleasing image. Did you boost the saturation when processing this image?

This looks ....

very nice to me, Jeremy. Few elements in a well done composition (horizon in upper third and this abandoned machine not in center). Curious how this would look in b+w?

However a convincing work, like it. Best wishes,

I wrote "yummie, yummie" and "love the bright, strong colours and light" on Klaus' "facing west at 7pm" ( I could say exactly the same for this picture. :-)

Nice with the rusty equipment left behind. I like minimalist pictures, but this would have been too minimalist for my taste if the equipment wasn't there. I also like your composition wih all that wonderful yellow taking up so much space as it does and the nice curve/"hill" to the left.

Thanks so much for your comments Chris. I'm very happy how this one turned out

Thank you Grant. Yes, saturation was part of the processing of this image.

I appreciate your comment Horst. I hadn't considered black and white. I will look into it. Thanks

Thank you Robert

Jeremy - this is very similar in color to my last post, (blue, yellow and rust) although of course this is a much more beautiful scene. The composition works well for me (maybe a bit too much FG but I am sure you have tried what is working best). The colors and light are great. You have done well at the horizon line where the sky blends with the crop (oats?) - I experienced this to be quite difficult if you push pp adjustments too much which results in nasty effects.

i love these pastoral scenes and the old aged equipment; you presented all well here ; i 'd wish for a bit more vibrancy in the colors ...cheers ;-))

I have always admired your work. It means a lot to me that you would compare this to yours. Thanks.

Thanks dv. By more vibrancy in the colours, do you mean increasing the saturation?

My eyes are always drawn top yellows esp when there are blues to go with it. I like this one. I like your choice of compo. Great image.

Thank you very much Geno. I also like the contrast of blue and yellow
