    Those are great shadows on the terrain! too bad the sky is blown out.

    Those rolling hills and the flocks of sheep (at least I think that's what they are) make for a beautiful pastoral image. Thanks for sharing this one.

    Yeah, I like the shadowing on this one, kinda makes it more 3-D if you know what I mean. And yes, they are sheep, there were quite alot around where I was standing.

    Erm, sorry if this sound noobish, but what does the above quote mean?

    Lost definition. Fades/cuts to pure white. Not bad in this shot- sometimes it happens.

    Looks cool to me.

    It's because there's such a huge variance in the light. It goes from very dark at the bottom to very bright in the sky. What you have is not a bad compromise. The only way around it (outside of Photoshop tricks, I suppose) would be a split neutral density filter aligned with the horizon to darken the sky while leaving the bottom half as is. This shot could be a textbook example for using that type of filter.

    I knew when I read the title that I may get sad by seeing this picture.
    You have GREEN GRASS!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't be more jealous.
    I really need to travel when it's winter here.

    Great pic though. May I suggest cropping it a bit. The foregrounds a little dark and the skies a little to bright. If you cropped it a bit, like a panoramic I think it'd help
