Changing colours

*edited - gamma
Trust that everyone is having a good weekend. We've been out since morning..glad that we return in time to capture this image. It was amazing seeing this sea of gold..the image doesnt do justice! I plan to get a closer look at the field next week, so stay tune.

ps. Will reply to your comments later

This a really nice shot. Sun breaking through the clouds with a suggestion of rain in the distance, clean horizon, strong color contrast in the field. There seem to be a lot of photos of rapeseed fields in CDPBs these days but it's that time of year in Europe.

Don't apologize for editing the picture. What counts is the image you show us, not how you got there. Most if not all of the pix I post have been tweaked in Photoshop.

If I may make one suggestion: consider cropping out the dark area in the foreground. It isn't interesting but everything above it certainly is. Besides, having the horizon right down the middle makes the picture a bit static. Lowering the horizon by cropping would emphasize the beautiful field and sky.

Thanks, Strabgetaste!
yes, i rememeber Alice of Arradon posted something similar. It is certainly a delightful sight.

Post production on my photos usually incl. sharpening, and contrasting. I try to keep it as real as possible to the orig. scene. I'll do extra tweaking when the quality is poor.

Your suggestions make sense, i'll try to play with it in a bit :)

Great colors. I'm surprised that the land is so flat there. I thought it was a photo of the Netherlands!

Beautiful photo. The rays from the sun breaking through the clouds are very nice. I had to move down the page to see the whole photo and was very pleasantly surprised by a burst of gold ... Alice (from Arradon Daily Photo) posted a similar photo.
