Better crop, but that sun is a killer with the harsh light.if that could be toned down?


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

I did try and use the adjustment brush to select the blown out area of the sun and bring it down a bit but I coulnd't really get it to do much more then I did to the second one. But I will give it another shot and see hwat I can come up with.

The telephone poles provide some interesting leading lines . . . but then there are simply no poles on the left 1/3 of the frame. That's a strong element that simply drops out of the image.
Also, the sun itself works somewhat as a focal point in the image. Being such a strong element in this composition, it may be more effective if it weren't located in the middle of the frame.
BOTH of these issues could have been addressed by simply composing the image differently when you were positioning yourself for the shot.
I have re-composed the image by cropping it, just to show what may have been a more effective composition. But it really needs to be done on-site, when making the photo, to be effective.

Tom just hit a great composition for that shot (I just again don't like the vignetting), and explained why it worked better dead on. I linked back to your image so it would be easy to see the before and after side by side.

Ok here i cropped the picture a little different. I took out some of the black space from the left and also tighten up the vineyard. I still can't seem to fix that blown out sky but what do you think?

I like the original, it's striking. It tells me, morning is rising, and the farmer is already in the field. I wouldn't hang it on a wall, but if I was looking thru a portfolio, it would definately get my attention. -rick

I don't think I'm awake enough yet to give good feed back, to my eyes the image is now leaning down to the right, lol. Regardless of my eyes being crazy this morning I think you see the opportunity to take the same type of opportunity next time and push it to the next level.

I think it looks good. I I did the shot I would double expose the ground and sky separately. That way the sun does not have to be as blown out.
