Posted by john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 4 March 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This is the first in a series of four versions of the same shot. This is the straight version, no frills.

Beautiful scene, with nice, rich color. The linear foreground makes an interesting contrast to the soft background.

I've come to the screen just in time to see get the sweet and gentle mist that envelops everything. A cottage built around the tablecloth on the kitchen table. Fully integrated into the landscape. Some touches of soft green of newborn boil. and a road that goes into the beautiful landscape. You outsmart your beautiful pictures in the next series begins today? I hope to see if this is possible! Many kisses dear Jack! Adela

This is a gorgeous composition, Jack, and that's either a huge home or perhaps a condo complex.

Just beautiful!

4 Mar 2010 2:36pm

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

So great in its tapering from bold rich saturated green and brown up to the ethereal fading mists. It wouldn't be the same without the car. It gives it an interesting tension.

4 Mar 2010 3:09pm

@Bettina: Regarding the car; spoken like a true citizen of the City of Angels :))

Reflecteur from Gothenburg, Sweden

Very good captured scene! The colour combination is superb and the mist gives a special character and effect to the shot!
Well done!

A fine picture of this elegant home and grounds. The fog in the trees adds to the picture's quality. Very nice shot. I'll look forward to the other versions.

SOUL AFLAME from The bosom of Mother Nature, United Kingdom

Well I'm liking this first, straight shot, Jack. It'll be a tough job to beat this image in my opinion with any fancy plug ins and trickery, unless one version is mono perhaps which I always love. But I am always happy to be proved completely wrong.

4 Mar 2010 4:25pm

@SOUL AFLAME: I'm taking prints of all of the versions to me critique group tonight.
