    Question Buttercup field

    Couldn't quite work out how to best capture this buttercup field in the afternoon sun. I tweaked the colour settings a bit in PS but I still don't think it looks right. Anyone got any tips or suggestions for improvements, either in adjustments or composition as I also struggled knowing what the best angle & composition was for this type of shot. All suggestions gratefully received.

    It's a good pic, though I know how it feels when you just can't seem convey the feeling of a place in an image. If the field of buttercups was big enough, I would've probably tried to make a panorama. Or, get inside the field itself and take a pano (although that might be trespassing...). Another approach I might have used is taking a high angle shot, with the flowers in the foreground leading the eye to a distant point of interest, like the house or a shapely tree.


    Can anyone say "lupin"?

    I have no idea what this flower is--flower experts, do you know? I took the photo in Vermont last weekend, and edited it a bit. Comments welcome, and flower name sought!

    Rainy day

    Taking pictures between raindrops. Cropped and lightly sharpened. Really enjoying the pictures on this thread!
    How come this picture is so big - only 174k. You'd think I'd understand this better by now but it is too much like math....

    Phil...

    I really like the shot.

    But...there are some changes that I saw in my head. First, I think the bottom needed cropping. Before the density of the buttercups picks up, the foreground was a little boring. Also, by cropping the bottom, it makes the field seem more expansive. Second, the late afternoon shadows in the background were dragging the picture down.

    So, I took a shot and did some edits (I hope you don't mind that I edited it...if it's not o.k. let me know and I won't do it again). After I lifted the shadows a little, I added back some contrast to get rid of the subsequent washed out effect...

    Let me know what you think!

    That is one beautiful shot!

    And, whatever lens that is, it's pretty amazing. What camera, lens, settings? Thanks!
