Beautiful Colors.Very nice composition.Regards.

The pov is great and even the tree is very sharp.
Good vibrant green/ yellow colours.



Bonjour Jean Christophe.
La saison des colzas donne de splendides plans graphique à immortaliser dans les champs et tu sais en excelle dans ce domaine.
J’aime bien ces contrastes opposées et forte, Bravo pour cette maîtrise.

J'aurai éventuelement mis un tout petit filet noir entre le cadre et l'image pour ne pas noyer le blanc du ciel dans le blanc du cadre.
Bonne journée

The two layers of foreground is marvelous, toning is cool, colors and its sharpness is great composition of the tree is on its point it should be, but what about the sky??? where are its colors or does it need at least blue?

Salut Jean Christophe

I would add a secondary inner black border line, around the white sky, to separate it from the rest of the white border. The image itself is wonderful. Nothing to fault. Tfs! Bon weekend!

Hi Jean,
Very nice ! Well composed and very simplistic. Love the contrast in this. TFS Julie

hi jean
i guess these arent the original colors...
the photo has been burned, the sky and the tree is the proof and saturation increased, with an increase in sharpness. Cud have done something with the stark sky...
looks great though, TFS.

Love this minimalist approach JC. Just a great shot and great PP work. Great job

Ciao Jean

Well .. Well ... Well.
My colors super favorite
carpet in this beautiful landscape!
A beautiful visual of colors and details.
The tree alone to observe all the beauty.
Beautiful look and great taste!

hi Jean

3 colors and you are able to present such a fine graphic reality of the field! Very well captured POV and effective composition to create a visual from the lines dividing zones of color. I wont mind the washed out white sky.

Very thoughtful to place the tree in such a striking position!

tfs, bill

une de mes préférées dans tous les champs où j'adore me promener grâce à toi!
minimaliste certes mais avec en plus une composition perfectioniste!

Hi Jo :)

Your spring-field-compositions are amazing, I like their graphic and geometrical effects. Good job!

It's nice to finally know your name! Though Jonathan worked just fine for me ;)
It's a pleasant surprise to come back and see what a beautiful turn your photographs have taken. I love this minimalist shot, the composition, the colors, the cropping are perfect. The line trough the green and yellow is key here. Congratulations old friend!!!

Failte Jean!

great french landscapes you have here!
