Very nice shot. The wide angle and the colors gives some surrealist effect to the pic.

The grass in the foreground is a bit too dark, and I would have probably forced the colors to reinforce the surrealist feeling.

Great shot, reminds me of some of Salvador Dali's work, well composed, nice DOF, warm & vivid colors. I like this shot very much.

Great light and dark parts. It is amazing how you have so smooth but in the same time sharp image here.
Very good composition with this low POV.
Hee..I just have seen this sheeps in the grass:-)

Hi Matthew,
I love this shot as well as the one yesterday(it puzzles me though on the lack of reaction to yesterdays shot....so far!)
I think the balance of light and dark is really fantastic to create a great mood/feel among this expansive shot of some great architecture and the looming landscape complimented by a fabulous skyscape.
I just saw the sheep as well....heheh..that's funny and a great detail as the rest of the shot has awesome detail in sharpness and clarity. Great light and timing with the sunlight on the viaduct. I like this in color for my preference....
I was not sure about the trees included on the left....well at first I liked them and then well maybe a crop and I covered them up with my hand and the shot is still good but missing that part so I love the addition of the trees far left.
Very nice work Matthew!

hi matthew
this is very good. great composition, the low POV emphasises the size of the viaduct, and the evening light on the stonework is lovely.

Beautiful structure design. The tones are perfect. Excellent.

Well Done.

Hi Matthew,
Superb landscape with so great depth and glorious warm light! Heavy grass waves and bricks texture makes this picture breath. In particular I like the thin bare tree on the left.
And you are right, this picture will surely benefit from b/w even more, so I did a WS for you. Hope you like it.

Hi Matthew, Brilliant perspective... I think it's just fine with the little distort gave by the 10-20mm! Nice structure, good picture! TfS

ps: update in workshop! :)
