    i like it, though that hint of a horse or cow behind the tree was a lil distracting once my eye found it.

    I agree with the saturation statements. Just throw in a curve layer and pull out some of the green and it'll probably look much more natural. I think you can get away with the sky as it is but pull out some green.

    It is a little too much green but it still looks better than gray grass!

    yeah i tried to do my best this is the first time dealing with photo post, i will post original and will you all help me with the work flow? I should have been using a tripod but i left it at home, i was unfortunate on that one, also I love my tamron 28-75 but i think it needs to be calibrated because it hunts really bad in this setting, and wasn;t to my liking. if i were to do it all over again, i would have brought tripod, stopped the lens down to about f/11 and MLU and maybe bought a better ND filter, I am using a 4x now, Cokin P series.


    i just found shadow and highlights so thats why it could be over done. :) and the green well... my monitor maybe needs calibration.

    I like the saturation. I don't think the treeline is too dark at all, it should be dark. I love the exposure, the light on the grass, etc.

    What I don't really care for is the composition. However, it's not a bad photo...just not a great photo.

    There isn't alot going on. Like, it's a nice view, but it's not really a nice photograph. Saturation is too high, and it seems a little crispy. Did you use Unsharp mask on this? If you did, you probably used too much. Composition wise, I also feel like I'm getting too mcuh "Infront of fence" and not enough "behind fence", and definitely not enough sky. I think you would have been better off trying this one portrait, and getting as wide as you could get. A nice spot though. You should definitely go back and see what you could do a second time around.

    Overall though, it's not bad.

    the reflection in the puddles looks way too fucking obnoxious too...did you paste the sky into the puddles to get that effect?

    Yeah boosted everything then desaturated and burned the reflection because it was shitty.
