there's something special about long blades of grass lit by a low sun at sunset - they take on a warm glow and give you a really high-contrast shot.

this is over in East Yorkshire, could be anywhere.

Tripod at it's lowest level, waited for the breeze to stop.

Taking the shot....

This caught my eye as a thumbnail...I think it could be completely FAB with a little different editing...

Amazing light and color in this photo. Great sky, yet still subtle enough not to detract from the primary subject. Very nice!

Beautiful composition and lighting, but the yellow at the bottom of the sky looks a little off.

I like the sky, but the foreground doesn't really move me, even though it is certainly green...
06/07/2006 09:44:51 PM
Other images like this pale in comparison to yours. Great DOF.
