Please take a look at my new photo album: I've moved my past competition entries into a separate album, so that comments can now be made on those images. Comments would be most welcome

Nice one Charlotte. This I really like. Plenty of drama in the sky, and the line of the flowers on the RHS does lead the eye into the picture, but I'm wondering if there was another angle here with this line playing a bigger part, and perhaps being on more of a diagonal?

I really like the flow of the land from left to right.

Is it my eyes (and you know what there like ) or have the clouds got a pinky cast to them?

Many thanks for your comments + suggests. Graham, you're probably right that a shift in viewpoint to create more interesting lines + diagonals would've produced a more dynamic shot. Sadly, my shoot was cut short by rain, so I didn't get very many shots, + this was the one I liked best.

P-E your eyes don't deceive you, there is indeed a pink tinge to the sky, as it was indeed really there. A storm is brewing in this pic, + soon the rain came down + I had to pack up + go.

Thanks again for your comments, much appreciated.

Charlotte, I love this one ! Tell us how do you get such great depth of field ? do you take several pics at different focus points ? or is it that your lense is so good ? I assume it is an 18 mm ? I am not very schooled in photogrphy, but I know I would like to be able to shoot a pic like this one ! Everytime I see a field of flowers I somehow fail to get this sharp a dof, and I wonder how it should be done ? I try and get a low F stop like 22 or lower, and use a tripod, but never get it right.you got it right ! I shot a field of flowers in Alaska and set my camera up on a tripod , and shot several pics at different focus points, then in PS I cloned the background in, picking the sharpest pics, but surely there is a better way ? Hope this doesn't sound too stupid a question , if so ,sorry !!!

Thanks for your comment, rating + question Frances, which I answered in detail some time ago in the forums, but forgot to update this thread. Briefly: lens was Sigma 10-20mm which helps to get a long DoF (i.e. wide angle), used a tripod and a small aperture (around f/22), and hyperfocal focusing for max DoF. I did a fair bit of post-processing on it, since I shoot RAW, and the lighting was a quite flat as it was very overcast, as you can see. This is one of my favourite images, and I had fun taking the shot + doing the processing. I'm pleased that you like it

Cheers simpbow
