You may wonder why I mention "Dutch" in the title of the picture showing hills but I can explain this. The light I tried to achieve in PP reminds me the one on the old Dutch artists' canvas.

great moment, composition, light and colours!

Seems like you attracted a seed-scatterer!

Yes, the sky is somewhat reminiscent of the old Dutch stuff but there would have been a couple of pudgy chicks frolicking in a state of undress in the foreground. Where are they? Disappointed.
While you wre working on the sky, you seem to have neglected the foreground, which is a little dark for me. I know that it still looks like an old painting like that but I feel that it needs more than just the sky, maybe an old cottage - or is my screen in need of calibration?
Whatever - a frame appears! Good!

Yes, really a Dutch paint, with his light on the trees. If this was a real painting, I believe you could sell it for a lot of money.
Groetjes, Giuseppe.

Beautiful Vsevolod...you are right this is the style of the Dutch master painters in the 17th century...great play with the light and composition.

I think that your photo makes honor of the great Masters of "clair-obscur". This light on the trees is stunning! Well done! Annie
