Hi Mehmood ali,

Great photo, i see why it is your favourite. Good DOF, POV...
The dramatic light of the sky helps accomplishing the effect and enhances the perspective idea.

Cheers, Galder

A beautiful place,all colours and patterns are very natural
like u r there BRAVO ALI.

hi mehmood
excellent shot with the hdr use,really brings out the detail in grass and straw,most striking is the moody sky a little work needed on the burned out areas regards

Dear Mehmood

Fantastic shot from a regio in the world that is not known for it; s beauty unfortunate.

Great treatment of the image gives a very special outcome
I like it a lot

Hi Mehmood,
A fabulous presentation of this moody capture from an agreeable POV.
Nice path leading into this perspective with a dramatic sky overhead!
Great tree in the FG which is the focal point of the composition.
Good work, my friend!
***A Happy New year***

Hello Mehmood! Very well composed image, I love the dark sky, the old tree and the long road. well seen and well done! All the best in 2010!


Great shot - the HDR treatment is very effective here, producing a strong mood in that sky, delivering good saturation. Your composition was well thought out - the lead-in of the road from the lower-left corner, the low placement of the horizon and the use of negative space to reinforce the dominance of sky.
Well done!

Nice shot, with great HDR that is not overdone. I like how the tree seems to have been reaching too high into the clouds at times, wearing off some of its leaves:) Excellent perspective and mood. Well done!
