    It is a nice image Jeff, although I don't think it stands up to the standard that I expect to see when you post. Sorry but you have done it to yourself by posting so many fantastically lit images.

    I think the problem for me is the trees block a lot of the view and the animals are partialy covered to the point I can't tell if they are cows or dogs. Did you not carry your step ladder?

    I agree Jefff, the back drop which I assume is he subject is secondary and hidden from us by the very average foreground. The mountains look like a great scene but the trees hide them.

    Thanks for the reply - you've got me puzzled " image is to cool colour wise for the image type" could you explain further ?

    Its just a creative opinion, jeff, the blues coming from the sky wash down over the mountains then the get slightly less on the fields in the mid ground but still definitely bluish. then to me the blue cools down the for ground giving it a yellowish green sort of feel. the light needed to be more orange to warm it up. so to many blues, yellows and greens = needs warmth.

    Ah, so you think it needs warming up ? Thanks, you may be right. From your previous comment " image is to cool colour wise for the image type" I thought that you were suggesting there was a predefined colour temp for landscapes, portraits etc. Thanks for clearing this up.
