The weather has been dreadful but in a rare moment of sunshine I managed to capture some lovely views from the hills around my home. My first entry for months as I seem to have got bogged down in work and other things so I'm just pleased to be back with an entry. Photoshop is playing up like crazy on my new PC - keeps freezing in the middle of editing, so I can honestly say editing is pretty minimal! Shot in RAW and converted using Olympus Master. Cropped, levels, minor colour adjustment and smart sharpen.

Quintissential British countryside (though could equally be elsewhere in Europe). Lovely light, lovely sky detail, nice composition, inclusion of focal point house. Nice.

I like this a lot. One thing that stands out is the detail of the cloud blocking the sun on the ground in the middle. I think you've balanced the frame perfectly. The differen't shades of color throughout... the buildings distance helps give an idea of how far you can see from where your standing.

Very nice! I really like the cross-patterning. The cloud shadows add some contrast without being overbearing. There is just enough sky to tell us about all the clouds, but you didn't let them be the story. You even got a house on a "thirds" spot :-) Excellent shot!

I love this photo. It reminds me of an area I used to know in Sonoma County, California, many years ago.

this has soooo much potential. If the colors were just a bit bolder and the photo a bit sharper. Still a good composition............6

Good composition, great location, love the rolling hills and detailed sky. The lack of light in the foreground (corn/wheat? field) reduces the impact slightly. Good effort!

I always like the way farmland looks when you can see it like this. The different shapes, colors and textures. Very nice photo.
