Greetings from the Critique Club!

What a great shot, I was so glad to see it on the homepage! Lovely subject with the barn dwarfed by looming mountains all around, meeting just above the barn and continuing into the islands and the background. Simple but effective composition with the barn at the lower third plane. Wonderful toning, glad to not see any bleachy clouds in a handheld shot ;-) Glad to see the deep DOF.

Also loving the relatively warm tones in the foreground, then the cooler tones of the distant landscape. So difficult to capture in-camera.

Ok no more nits to pick here! Again huge congrats on the top 5 showing and HM. Now go out and shoot some more ;-)

Susan

Ha that is too funny!

Just wondering if this is the other half of those Aussies travelling the world?? Fantastic POV, lovely rolling hills and blue lake, gorgeous overall!
