In the Country

This was taken on what was called the "Fruit Loop Shoot." The fruit trees were beginning to bloom like crazy.

Craig from Vacaville, California, United States

Hey Jack, you've really hit a home run with this one. The repeated red barns really pop. But, it is the fine values shot under overcast skies that do it for me. I really like the repeated lines (crop rows) and shapes that combine to make this a superior image. Well done man!

Sarah from Suisse, Switzerland

Terrific capture Jack - beautifully composed. I like the quote too!

Alivia from Saint-Etienne, France

A successive plans for a gradation of the image, with each movement of the grass that creates a particular design and the image that rises gently toward the sky in this upward movement of the vegetation and the mixture of color and brown houses, excellent composition, Jack.

Mathilde Collot from Fontainebleau, France

Voila! I love this picture. Road serpente and leads. Repetition of red. The eye is attracted to a beautiful way to every corner of the picture! poetry, gentleness, harmony. I find you here in this kind of image!

this is a STUNNING shot mate -- amazing job with the processing!!

28 May 2009 11:41pm

@dj.tigersprout: Went back and checked LR, dg. The processing involved a slight crop, boosting the black slightly and increasing the clarity a bit.
