WIth a few hours before my flight, I took a drive up a beautiful scenic canyon looking for fall trees and came upon the Ten Spoon Vineyard and Winery. S-

Pleasant and pretty - for me, a postcard of the area to attract visitors. Straight-forward, nicely composed and processed, but not memorable in the sense of emotion (whether drama, joy, serenity etc). Partly I feel that way because of the middle of the day lighting and because I am familiar with similar landscapes. A stressed city worker in desperate need of a literal change of scenery will see differently :)

I like; reminds me of times I would drive into the back roads of Montana, go around a bend and have a beautiful panorama open up. Surprised by joy. Nicely done. Thanks. Matt

Beautiful scene. I love how the blues pop against the yellows :-)
I'm also glad you included the fence posts. It's a nice touch to the overall scene. I feel without them this would have been too generic looking.
This scene would look impressive with a cinematic crop too. :thumbup:

Reflecting on my thoughts of this image I decided to give it ago in Ps...I usually do before commenting on a posters's image to make sure I don't make inflated statements and end up with egg on my face.....I believe I was fairly successful in translating my thoughts to the image so decided to post here for discussion rather than pm you.

At first glance I was in Linda's camp seeing a well composed scene that was just blah...I asked myself why, it has great elements, the foreground with fence, the middle ground with trees, and the background with mountains and sky. Duck's tutorial on sentinel came to mind and I started thinking about triangles which got me thinking in three's....foreground, middle ground, background, I think you did well with the sky but left some possibilities on the table with the fore and middle ground. I don't have Duck's talent with illustration or words so I'll let the image tell you. From what I've seen lately your pp is progressing nicely, you just need to slow down and let your mind catch up and see all you have learned.....

Excellent. Just remember no one can get to the upper rungs without hitting the lower rungs first. :cheers:

I like it and I don't, and I think it's because I want something in the foreground to hold my attention, everything is mid to back, and of course, it's mid-day so the light is straight down and flat because of it. The funny thing is that I'm from the big city, but I've been around the block enough to know the difference.

The really important thing to me is that you were honest, and I really appreciate that! I'd rather know it's not quite than have someone gush when they don't mean it. It may be daunting to some, and I get that, but it helps me, especially when you say why so I can learn from it and improve my work. Thank you for that! S-

Funny you should say that because I took the photo blocks away from the University of Montana. Love it! S-
