    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    For me the contrast is just too great. Makes the scene less interesting. The light patch is nice, but yes, something missing.

    It doesn't look very natural. I could believe the foreground shadow but to have the whole far field shaded doesn't look credible. I don't know how to get a good "sun on meadow" image. If you stand and look, the wonder is in the complexity and detail of the ecosystem with the tiny specs of yellow, blue, red of flowers and the delicacy and movement in the grasses. It is probably a subject that demands a 6' print!

    A young Theresa May running through it perhaps?

    I can see why you took it and I rather suspect I would have taken it too. Like you I also would now be looking at thinking that it just doesn't seem to work as well as it seemed to when the shutter fired...:confused:

    The light is lovely and the lit grass is a lovely colour but the rest of the scene is very uninteresting and the dark band at the top doesn't help.

    Frankly I think it needs a Westie...;):D

    Dear Andy,

    Presumably there's a cliff just out of shot.

    Seriously, the thought of Treese ever having been young is a bit disquieting. Surely she is eternally middle-aged?

    I rather think stuck in her early teens is a better description.

    Yep. It's missing something. So I went back with the Westies. But the combine harvester beat me to it - everything cut to a couple of inches high!

    Fortunately, no sign o TM

    Dear Adrian,

    Too much to hope that the combine harvester got her...

    Mind you, have you ever seen Rees-Mogg and a combine harvester together?

    I don't feel qualified to criticise this, but offer a revised version you could compare with yours.

    I downloaded your image (I won't keep it), and cropped it to Cimemascope (2.35:1) ratio just below the horizon, and made a small levels adjustment, using my ancient copy of Photoshop Elements 7. Printed to a metre wide and framed...
