    I agree, it looks great technically, but it just doesn't quite do it for me. I think my problem with it is that it reminds me of the windows xp default wallpaper :lol: And maybe the horizon is a bit too close to centered???? Aside from that, the picture is excellent, keep up the good work!

    WhileI think this suggestion crosses the line from Photography to Digital Imaging I would suggest finding something to paste into the foreground using Photoshop. If you took a photo of something relevant in similar lighting conditions it should be a fairly seamless integration.

    It is an amazing picture in regards to colors and contrast but as soon as I ask myself what the subject is I'm scratching my head a bit.

    I know people will look down on this (including myself to a degree) because you're creating something later on that wasn't in the original frame but I'd say as long as you're not saying it's a genuine photo, who cares. It's not like you're killing puppies or anything.

    Remember the old principle, that a picture should tell a story, i.e. If you put a caption to your shot, what would it be?? Do you get my point, it's difficult to put a name to it. Sorry to be blunt, but it doesn't say anything.

    A cow would look good in there. I like cows so maybe that isn't the best advice :lol:

    I actually think that if you had simply lowerd yourself a little and made the plant (corn?) the subject with the horizon a little higher it would help tremendously without completely changing the idea.

    ItÂ’s not that bad, only has a few problems, (1) the framing the bottom seems odd IMO, seeing the ground may have helped some: (2) did you think about a fake panoramic crop off the top (3) colors have an old slide look to them, was that you wanted if not play with the levels in PS (4) try a B&W convention
