Thumb-up Thumb-up    from letuchka/Ilja (2,246) Send mail to this user on May 19, 2012 4:23:56 PM CDT (1) Early critique

Great capture with a very moody exposure. Even in BW it feels very warm. I really like out of office area at the bottom. It's sort of like eye loses areas where you do not concentrate. This area force one's eye to go up, see the scenery and stay there. It would be almost a 3TU, but to me upper part with two more levels of tree lines is distracting. Just try to cut it just above first tree line (if you count from the bottom) up there and it'll make trees look like there's a skyline. Less is more in this case.

Thumb-up Thumb-up    from dara42m/Dara (92) Send mail to this user on May 19, 2012 1:21:50 PM CDT (1) Early critique

I personally prefer everything from front to back in focus or deep depth of field. I would have prefered to have seen it this way. Especially my view being followed on the nearer diagnol line into the picture . Anyway the use of blur in the forground is a style... I think the bright tones of the grass are very well done. The use of parallel diagnol lines are very interesting and pleasing as well as the lines that move across your picture. There is interesting contrast with line of trees and hedges due to darker tones etc. It is well composed with something in the forground, middle ground and background that holds attention. One point about the antenna in the distant background I think it breaks the harmony and rythm of trees in the middle ground and background in my opinion. Would it be possible to clone the top of it out? Anyway just a thought. Interesting and creative landscape photography. Thanks for sharing.

I really enjoy your work Tomas, this is another good 'un. Its a very unusual choice of scene but you still managaed to make it striking. The shallow depth of field achieved is impressive coupled with very crisp details in the buidings and perfectly spaced trees. The diagonal line in foregound aid the compo in my humble opinion. Keep them coming, Rob
