Ordinary Landscapes- No Orton
Posted By: JMR, 11-19-2008, 08:16 PM

Gary, are you out there? See I do take realistic images. No PP, just one slight crop. It's hard though, Gary. Can never make sunrise due to other responsibilities- sigh.

1- My favorite tree- the Willow- with orange-brown color which one gets in the late autumn and early spring. 2- Some bare trees and field in early morning sidelight; 3- Beautiful field of Sumachs and other bushes in soft overcast light.

Beautiful. I'd like to see the full reflection of the tree in the first image though. I love the effects you achieve with the post processed images you've posted. I can tell you begin with a good image and enhance to complete your vision. Nothing wrong with that what-so-ever. This set shows you deliver the goods.

Nice shots

I agree with Gary on number 2... closely followed by number 1

Nice shots indeed. I also like #2 , the bare trees, rolling landscape sprinkled with skiffs of snow - nice.

Very nice shots, I too really found the second shot to be best. It really draws your eye into the scene.

Thank you LaRee. I too wanted to include the whole tree but it was near a drain pipe and actually at the mouth of a turn. Perhaps next time when I get down at the tree level.

Thank you all. It is funny that we all like different images best for different reasons. As it should be. I have to say I struck by the second image when I got it home for its quality of light and bringing out the texture on the land. But I like the third image best because I like the softness of the whole scene- the sumachs and brush with earthy colors- in the middle of November.

You're biased towards all of them though, you took them.
It's easier for us, we don't have that emotional attachment, we can just pick the one we like without any guilt associated with our decision.
