    Donald mentioned how well you capture lighting, and that is so true. I love your capture of the sun/light sweep through the grass and across the image into the mountains/clouds. It highlights the colors of the grass so well.

    Many thanks for the kind words. You in New York ? I spent 2 months there in the 70's and had a great time. Great town!

    Great shot. The light and colours are beautiful. However, I think it would have more impact if the tree wasn't so close to the frame. Perhaps you were avoiding something to the left in the scene? I'm not sure. If you had stepped back a bit or zoomed out some to give the tree a bit more space, it would have taken this shot to the next level.

    I find that one of the more challenging parts of landscape photography is being in the right place at the right time, and here you've nailed it.

    Yes, I was avoiding more trees - I wanted the leading line to the horizon and this was the only way to get it. I'll need to add a chain saw to my bag ! Thanks for the kind words !

    Jeff, I agree with everyones comments. Beutiful capture. As for the left side against the frame, I think a small cloning of the couple branches that run out of frame could give it just a little space and be well worth it. Either way, love it.
