    Took this yesterday and really not sure about my processing of it. What do you think? Comments on all aspects of the photo are welcome. Thanks for looking.

    ok... this is just my opinion and my taste so don't take it too seriously

    when I looked at the photo the first thing I thought was "oh , this has a great potential for pp"
    I would process this picture in a gloomy, dark way... the sky is very well preserved

    The picture as it is is a bit dull... jmho

    we'll see what others have to say :)

    Good morning Ms. SquarePeg.
    I agree with M&M that you have a location that has real potential.
    Maybe something from a higher angle so that you bring more of the beautiful colors of those trees in the background.

    Here is a link to several landscape tips and tricks. I enjoy reading these because they tend to be short and sweet. They often include example images.

    I only have a few from a higher angle and none of them show the maze, just the field of corn but a better view of the foliage.

    Much much nicer imo. :)

    If this is place you can get back to, I would still try to incorporate the dirt path into the shot used maybe as a leading line.

    I like the curving like of the path, but my inclination would have been to try walking further up the path to see if I could get more of the trees. I tend to mosey and turn and look around etc. and sometimes I'll see a better picture.

    With this it's a lot of similar tones, gray, tan, yellowish tan, etc. So if possible I'd go on a nice sunny day, or if I'm stuck with a crappy cloudy day that's the only time I can get there, then I try to minimize what looks crappy. I think I'd like less of the choppy stalks to the right (particularly the one sticking into the picture), and sometimes I frame lower to get less gray hazy sky (unless the clouds are interesting; these have some interest closer to the ground I think). I'd probably want to bring the viewer more into the path than the sky. Depends I guess on what you want the picture to be about.

    I would go with a lower angle - make the corn look bigger than life and forbidding,
