    I like the picture, Adrian, but find that the burnt out highlights – especially the blazing one upper left – draw my eye away too much from the lovely detail in the wheat and that wonderful black hedge curving away into the distance. Its maybe a question of which bits of the image you want the viewer’s eye to be attracted to. Adrian

      Know exactly what you mean, I tried to tone down the burnt out upper left but that just made it worse.

      With hindsight the framing was too far to the left and should have excluded the setting sun and just captured the light on the wheat.

        Well why not simply crop out the sun and then try again with the rest? If you take out the sun you will no longer be on a standard photo size – I don’t even know if you’re on a standard size now – but to me one of the great liberations brought about by digital photpgraphy and Blurb etc is no longer needing to conform to standard photo proportions eg 3×2 because I’m not getting photos printed now, I’m putting them on my blog and into Blurb books – and hence my vertical letterbox formats etc.

        The first thing I do when confronted by a new image is to try orientating and cropping it every which way – good ideas sometimes emerge! A

          Adrian, I have found some more shots taken on the same night at the same location and will post these tomorrow.

          I tend to keep my images to standard proportions (or close to them) but I do occasionally experiment. I might have another go at the above image. Thanks.

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a developer to create your
    theme? Outstanding work!


    We stumbled over here coming from a different website and thought I may as well check
    things out. I like what I see so now i am following you.

    Look forward to looking into your web page yet again.
