There's nothing wrong with the color balance here. This area had its driest Spring in decades, & the grass is burnt off by the frost & snow of winter, & still waiting for decent rain, before it turns its usual lush green. I tried a vertical format here, because of the pine tree at right, & tried keeping to the rule of thirds. Taken a couple of kilometres from Mirage Tourist Ger Camp. Some marvellous scenery & hiking in any direction you care to go.

Hi Chris,
A superb POV to capture this simple, yet effective landscape shot!
Nice green trees on this yellow land.
A fabulous contrast with the dark blue sky.
A very sharp presentation, neat and nicely cropped.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Bonjour Chris.
Très bon cadrage pour mettre en valeur cette belle image de montagne.
Les couleurs et la netteté sont aussi bien contrôlées.

Bonne journée.

Hi Chris,

Sorry, but when I saw your title I couldn't help but think of the infamous "grassy knoll." Of course, that was long ago and I'm showing my age.

The vertical format suits this well and the green trees contrast nicely with the barren ground. I'm impressed by the way you used negative space in the foreground as a way to lead into the shot. The sky is a beautiful shade of blue, TFS.

Best regards,

Chello Chris,
Beautiful trees green kolours whit amnzing presenttion from landscape scenery.
Best regards.

Hi Chris,
Crisp and clear, although the trees in the distance appear a bit out of focus. Anyway a great landscape, well captured with amazing colours. Fine post my friend!

Hello Chris,

I haven't heard the word 'knoll' used for many years. It's like returning to childhood books! But, it fits perfectly!
The knoll makes a good dividing line in the shot, defining the compositional areas. The f/g is sharp, the b/g less sharp, giving a good sense of depth.
The brightness gives an indication of the weather conditions that you describe in your notes.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
