    This is another landscape I took while visiting in the midwest last week. C&C always welcome. I appreciate it, thanks. :)

    pretty awesome, but looks like the cows are a bit overexposed....perhaps? I dono. I really like it...but it's hard on the eyes...maybe too bright...I dono.

    I really like the sky in this one; it just looks like the horizon is off a little. I realize that it is hilly, but my head keeps wanting to tilt to straighten it out.

    Where was this taken in the midwest?

    Thanks anita and sideburns for the comments and critique. I agree about the tilt. It was bothering me too, so I straightened it.

    my eye goes straight to the blown sky in the bottom left. I also think the color is off, was the sky really blue like that? If the sky was gray, I think the green grass would be more powerful. But as far as the composition goes, I think it's good.

    Thanks sw1tch. The clouds were more of a purplish gray. I tried to keep the saturation down so that the image looked more like what I saw. Thanks for commenting.

    I like the depth effect you've been getting on this MW series.

    Thanks again for the nice replies!

    spiffybeth: Its very nice to have a meteorologist on the forum. I just wish I could find some mammatus clouds that were more pronounced and well-defined. Ive seen some that are huge illumunious sagging pockets, but was not able to capture them. :grumpy: Nevertheless, welcome to the forum! :)
