This image was taken about 10-15 min after the last one I posted and without the house. Thanks to all those who contributed to the last one, the thoughts & comments were very much appreciated. Hopefully this one is a little more on the mark for a rural late winter scene.
LOL, I don't know for sure Aart but I can tell you this, my Nikonians friends do have a influence on me. It's quite possible I took all the Critiques and the thing I learned from the other image and applied them to this one.
"It doesn't even look like the same place" Ya I know, it's crazy right.. I like the sun rays too but I do wish my big puffy clouds hung around for the sunset. The next day I got the sky I wanted but I was at work, all I could do is watch it unfold.
I said earlier that I liked this better without the farmhouse but that was when I viewed it on FB. Now it looks even better on the Nikonian site. It is a shame that so much detail is lost on FB site. Have you tried to get the farmhouse from a different angle or vantage point? I am sure you could get some interesting shots.

Hi Mike. Yep, me and Facebook don't see eye to eye on the image posting front, I struggle showing images there and I know all the secrets! It's just not made for showing images the way we like. It is a necessary evil though. I went back this morning early to try again with the farm house & gully combo. I will post some later for discussion. Thanks for you kind comments.
Very nice. Obviously the sunset effect is very attractive, and I like the way you processed the light in the grass. The only thing is that compared to the first one, except for the trees in the middle, its has lost the wintry feeling. Jean-luc

I agree Jean. Just taking what the man upstairs is giving. I just got word that we could be getting a winter storm in this area that could bring 8-10" of the white stuff. Fingers crossed!! Now watch I will be so excited I will blow the whole shoot.
