well I still can't stay away. Yesterday I went and took a few more (the lady slippers were in the woods behind the field). I think that each time I go back I am getting closer to my inner vision of this place.

I played with a few crops on this but decided that I liked the pano crop.

And hay is what?? Candy? ;)

And you didn't ask for critique :)

They are ... nice ... but don't have any wow factor for me I'm afraid. I like your previous visits better personally. Be there at a nice sunrise or sunset, or approaching storm ... then I'll jump :)
The compositions are good though.

lol, I was just teasing. And for horses, hay is candy. or at least potato chips.

I'll keep a lookout for impending storms. :thumbup:

I do like the treatment in both of these and I really like the comp on the 2nd one. The whole scene looks somewhat more hospitable now. I'm with MA in the preference for the winter shots. Not for technical reasons though, just the scene.

thanks Antz. I see what you mean. I'm just happy to be taking photos of lush green that I don't want any more winter shots lol:)

I like the 2nd one (pano) with the nifty clouds...gives a sense of a peaceful place. :)

I like the first. :) I am wondering if you might be able to go out on a windy day and do a very slow exposure at a low level to get those waves of grasses looking all soft and wavy. Not that I think it would be a better shot but it might just be an interesting experiment a la Darwin Wigget from podcast #77.
