[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The new crop is popping up on this piece of agricultural land on the city limits of Almelo. Taken with my new lens just before sunset.
I am not that happy with the exposure of the sky, since it is washed out, but I don't have a ND filter yet for this lens.

PP talk: added contrast and saturation, USM and frame

Hoi Niek,
Eigenlijk is het maar een simpel stukje bouwgrond maar jij hebt er een klein schilderij van gemaakt. Toppie.
De diepte en de groen- en bruintinten vind ik prachtig.
Bedankt weer.

superb comp and light, nicely done, thanx, M, (*_*)

out of points... yet again...

Nice touch, love the natural framing. Love the rustical colours.

Nicely composed with the tree on the left creating a natural frame, Niek. Nice sunset light on the field and, in my opinion, the white sky is not too much of a distraction; I guess you could have selected it in PP and try to work on the exposure but I am not certain it is worth the trouble. Well done!

Hi Niek...
I probably should not comment right now since the sun is shining directly on my screen for a few minutes...
Hehehehe, I like what the sun does to your landscape too! Brings life...
Well composed, well framed, and most likely good colours too even if I don't see properly!

Hi Niek,
Brilliant use of light. I love the way you have captured the sun here. Wonderful, also wondefully composed, using the trees to frame the shot. Lots of texture too. nice one.

Hi Niek,

Nice view, i like the reflection of the sky on the water, the natural frame is perfect.



Very nice landscape and photo. Great colours and Lighted -shadowed effect, with this warm light. Greens are very good and stand out in this compo.

Schitterende 'Postcard' opname ..ietsie pietsie te donker. Maar gezien de lange schaduwen is het of heel vroeg of laat in de namiddag, ik denk het laatste..
of loop jij echt 's morgens om 5-6 uur in het veld ^_^

Erg mooie foto Niek, ja echt een typische es landschap...het probleem met de overbelichting komt me bekend voor. Heb er zelf ook vaak last van. Maar wat is een ND filter, een soort polarisatie filter.



Hi Niek,

I love the lighting in this shot the golden cast on the crop looks great and the wide angle really makes the shot different i share your opinion that the sky is a little washed out but it does not ruin this lovely shot

regards Kruger
