Thank you very much for the great finish and the amazing comments. To be honest, this was quite a surprise and I'm grateful that much more.
This was taken in an area just north of the city and it astounds me every time I drive into the country and find new and fresh places to shoot. It was just about to rain and a simple hanging of a hat was all it took... :)
Editing was fairly simple and light. A little tone and sat adjustment and a touch of sharpening.
Thanks again!

a stunning photograph and an awesome process rudy ... that green in the sky is a master stroke ...
bummer about the dq .. i was extremely happy when i got my first dq, coz it was bombing out, and when you get a dq, if you're not an amazing photographer like you, then the image and your portfolio gets viewed a lot more .. i doubt a dq would be a good thing for you tho, coz having ribboned this would'v got heaps of views anyway ... not to worry, you ribbon so much its like a very minor setback !! .. say hi to yourself for me ..!! .. :):)

What an absolute bummer to see this image DQ'd. I was ever so impressed by the simplicity of the image, the lighting, the wonderful use of negative space, and the overall feeling of serenity projected by this photo.

The image may have been DQ'd, but it is still a winner in my books... something I would proudly hang on my walls.

Congrats Rudy on this timeless image!

Very evocative - I didn't see where you're from, but it looks like America, though the hat seems more like an edwardian English hat, so I feel kind of lost geographically.

I had a flashback to the '60's, where a track from Acker Bilk was played, with a pix of his bowler hat put on a hanger of a photo of Ilkley moor, and it just seemed like it somehow.

So, very evocative to me. I really like the subtle tones in the landscape, and it seems a well deserved Yellow - hope for more later

My favorite so far. I love the feel of the photo. With the hat folded up like that I can almost feel the wind blowing. 10

like the idea and composition ... was it going to storm? sky has a greenish tint to it ...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/18/2007 09:38:00 AM
I think I might like this better as either a sepia, or a B&W with the hat left in color.

might be better with a square crop and the post centered. breaking the rules is not bad as long as you know why your doing it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2007 12:37:47 AM
Oh I love this. Great use of neg. space and rule of thirds. Love the straw hat. NICE
