Without reading what you wrote, the first thing I thought of was, "Looks like a desktop wallpaper..."

So I guess you achieved exactly what you wanted!

Looks like a wallpaper for sure, but don't name it "Back-lit Grass" because it isn't back-lit lol

Thanks for the replies!

I agree 'backlit grass' is an awful name, but I was just trying to describe it :p The grass is actually backlit, from a reflection off a window as the sun was setting.

I think the shot has potential, but it would require a few tweaks. I think the background shows up too much and isn't attractive. I would shoot so that it doesn't show up or blur it more. You could also pick out the ten or so blades of dead grass. I would also say that it doesn't have the glowing tone of back-lighting - it looks directly lit by sunset (I'm not suggesting that is the case - I'm just saying that the normal effect of back-light through vegetation is missing).

Pretty neat! Definately good understand of light here.

@JFF the background gives it the spring warmth, isn't it blurred out enough? You don't get ANY detail. With BOKEH, this shot would actually be more distracting(right hand side where it becomes brighter) to the eye than how it is shot. It's well balanced between the highlight(middle right) in the background and also the shadow(middle left) in the background.


@Titus. I agree completely :-D'
Overall, pretty good shot, the cluster of grass that the light hits is obvious and walks from the background. Good balance as I keep looking at it.
