Beautiful colour, clarity and subject. Although the gate in the foreground is placed a little central, it still adds a good focal point to th image.
A real eye-cather!

Hi James,not sure what your PP work is,Topaz or HDR,but I sure like the effect. Great composition,I like the degrees of interest from the foreground gate,then the tall grasses,then the yellow field with the lone tree,into the hills in the background where the shadows of the clouds above give some great patterns & then that vibrant sky with the multitude of white grey clouds,makes for one vibrant landscape.

Bonjour James
Yes, I like it and more but how to tell you that with my bad english?! so may I only copy Karen A. and write: "I love it!! Excellent depth, fantastic colors, nice sharp detail and a beautiful scene as well. The sky is awesome!!"

Hi James,

I love this shot with its excellent light and detail. Superb DOF, I like all the different layers going back into the distance and the lovely dramatic sky. The tree in the middle ground is a little too centrally placed but that is such a small thing. Beautiful image with a summer feel.


I've never been in Scotland, but I think I would love its landscapes, James. Classic composition for a classic rural landscape. The movement of the clouds provides for a dynamic touch. Your picture looks crisp as if it had been taken just after a shower, when the sun breaks through again.
I suppose you also enhanced the contrasts to make it look that crisp. A tad too much for my taste, as, according to my screen, you unfortunaly have lost detail in the yellow flowers and in the white of the clouds: some patches of white and yellow do not have any nuance or texture anymore. I would have been a little more careful when adapting the levels or I only would have enhanced the dark tones.
Apart from that, a most enjoyable photo.
TFS & kind regards,

One of the best poster what a details what colours what a naure beauty and also the lights are just excellent BRAVO JAMES GORDON.

Piękne kolory, rzepak z prawie "burzowym" niebem wspaniale współgra.
Pozdrawiam M.

Hello James, what a great title, it sums up your shot nicely.
Excellent PoV and DoF.
The sky is wonderful;we do not see many skies like that, with those beautiful cloud formations.
Tfs, regards Jean.
