Good processing on this. It looks like it could be turn of 20th century.
Naw,, it's the beautiful vision. This is classic image that defies time. I'm so proud of you for giving us this photograph.
The day was perfect. Chilled, foggy, a hint of rain.
I took many photos throughout the morning.
The end product was in my head before I had uploaded to my computer.
I knew what it should look like.
A slightly different approach taken on the same day in the same valley.
If you look closely you can see the tea pickers high in the hill on the left hand side.
Both nice images.
I agree with Fred. Your second shot is also strong. What catches my eye are those wispy tree's on the left hill side. You're lucky to catch the light rain cloud. The more we shoot the luckier we get.
As a photographer, you've got the real stuff. So few have it.
I'm not a big believer in any of the so-called fateful occurrences in life, Joe.
Luck, good fortune, hoping, wishing, praying and all that stuff takes away from the effort I put into my photography.
Sure, I've taken a bucketful of pictures in my time. Some good, many not so good.
The thing I am assured of is that luck has bugger all to do with it.
In addition, whether another person likes an image often depends on the person and not my effort.
Do I care?
It's always a good feeling to have pleased someone else. That will depend on who that person is, of course.
It might be that the person has no knowledge base to work from or is just comparing mine to theirs.
I don't learn much from the liking of others.
My wife often says: "That won't hang on anyone's wall!"
Each to their own!
Luck is a very important element in my photography: 20% preparation, planning and praying and the rest is coincidence.
Some days I get the full 80% dosage of lucky chance and take some keepers, and at other times things happen at the critical moments, which means the 00 comes up and I walk away broke. Still, there's always another day and a chance to spin the wheel again...
Naw, I too am not all that sure about fate. I am confident that some people are fortunate, from birth, to hear the music while others are tone-def. So it is with vision.
Wish I hadn't posted my complements.
I think these are all quite excellent.
You might consider editing out the fragments of the picker behind the tree on the left to remove the distracting people pieces.
You did well to find that.
I had considered removing it.
I left it for many reasons.
It’s a ‘Where’s Wally’ surprise.
It would be contrary to my purpose.
It would be impolite.
It wouldn’t make any difference to your liking it.
It wouldn’t make any difference to me if you didn’t like it.
