Collection: Landscapes
Camera: Sony DSC-F828
Location: River Heights

A farm near my home. The mountains are part of the northern Wasatch range.

PP: I selected the bottom part with the lines and lightened. I also cloned a few things to preserve the integrity of the lines. I selected the mountains and added some contrast, adjusted levels. I added some saturation to compensate for camera supidity. There was a bit of noise in the image, so I did some cleaning, mostly with the Median filter.

Very nice scene, I like how the lines in the foreground directs my eyes to the mountains. I would like to see it bigger, in that way it would have more impact on the viewer.

Very nice dramatic contrast between the three zones of the picture ... dramatic sky, snowy foot hills, and warm fulfilled fields. Great composition. Great color and contrast. Nice dynamic range of levels with good white point/black point. Among my top picks.

Incredible DOF and colors. I love the way that the row crop leads your eyes into the picture. I am upping the vote on this picture after studying it longer. Great job

I'll say. It's really stunning and the blue and gold really make this a good good shot.

Beautiful saturated colours. It does look slightly heavy on the left - bit of a tilt I think.
Nice capture.

You have a ribbon winner here. I may quibble a bit with the title, but the image speaks for itself - and very loudly at that. Perfect in every way.

Nice contrast between the clouds and the ground. Would have done great in implied lines, I guess

I like how the crops (or what's left of them) lead your eyes to the mountains. Good job! Top ten maybe?

Very strong composition, beautiful scene. Still miss something in the foreground.

Hmmm... Is this Icelandic? Anyway could be although I don´t recognize these mountains. Great shot, love how the lines in the field lead you towards the mountains and good colour to, almost oversaturated but not quite and that´s not easy to do.

Wonderful shot, the colors blend really well and the golden wheat stalks with the blue of the sky compliment each other nicely. The layers of field, mountains, sky also works extremely well. Very nice shot.

Is the field wet or dry?
