    Oh man this is fantastic, just has a surreal feeling to it.

    Miles this is wonderful the lead in and the dark copse in the distance sets the mind a racing, I love the colours, beautifully composed and framed....

    Great shot. I love those colors.
    Did you use HDR to make this ?

    Be positive.

    I agree completely... it's a great shot. In fact, this shot reads like a story. An epic tinged with sadness, hope always clinging to the edges but never taking over. Cool.

    I like this a lot, Miles. I think it works very well. I have to say though, I thought I'd opened the wrong sight. I would have sworn this was done by Andrew Houser.

    Thanks, I'm just going through one of those phases where it's hard to be certain :)

    Aperture, this isn't HDR, it's all one exposure but I used 'multiply' and 'soft light' blending modes in processing.

    This is a great shot. The lines lead you into the image. The colors make you stop think and ponder. Thank you for sharing.

    Strange you say you have lost the idea of what works or not, I have been thinking the same thing. This one I do like though.

    Yes, it definitely works. Warmer colors in the right against cooler tones in the left in a fantastic composition, very "Mute style".

    wonderful metaphoical shot. Wait...not sure that's proper English usage--but you get the point. Amazing color--very emotive. Really liking this one Miles

    Fantastic atmosphere from what I imagine would be a fairly straight image if taken straight from the camera's jpg. Like A Adams said, the negative is just the musical score.

    works for me - cool.

    I think this image is fabulous. I really like how the tones go from dark to light as your eyes move across the image.

    Miles, this works. I think the bright ridge of grass on the left is what makes it, and without that feature, the compositional quality would be much lower.

    love the colors here, the feeling created by the bright green lines and the gold blue sky.

    This works really well with the slight out of focus picture and vivid colours.
