I once knew a tractor like that.
Love the soft colors and the echo in the fence
of human abandonment.

Nice rural image, I really like the composition here and the purple color of the flowers contrasted with the bleak light yellow colors of desolation.

Great work. The PP you've done here really suits this shot.

Wow, what a fantastic old piece of vintage machinery..... Life after death, re the tractor and the fresh mauve flowers.....

I might be mistaken, but are those bluebonnets? The title fits really well. Lovely shot! The only thing I might have done differently would have been to crop out a little more of the trees in the background, they seem to detract more than add to the photo. However, that's just an opinion, I bet there's plenty of people who disagree :)

This image has a beautiful feel, pretty scenery and the rustic tractor being left to rest.

I would place the camera in the level of the tractor or the flowers,avoiding the vires .Photos taken from 5-6 feet high are not scored good.

Nice composition! Beautifully muted tones!

Love how you post-processing brought out the flowers in the field. Very nicely done.

I think I have this in my favorites somewhere! I really like the contrast of the harsh, rusted tractor and barbed wire against the softness of the field and flowers.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 04:58:50 PM
Love it. I love the soft effect the grass has against the steel of the tractor. Well done. 10

Nice old tractor shot - I really do like it. The post-processing here is well done. Nicely composed.

I really love the processing here, and the hint of purple just makes it for me. Excellent shot. 8

Lovely rural study. The purple fowers scattered about and the flow of the fence are neat. The old tractor looks lost in thought. -9-

Nice tones and almost perfect composition.

Nice, love fact that you muted the colours, makes this shot very interesting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

really nice
what is the filter i keep seeing?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2006 03:26:43 AM
I love the field and the texture of the image but I feel maybe it should be a closer view of the Tractor given the title
Overall a nice pleasing image well done

nice image!

I like the muted tones of your image. Very fitting title. I like the composition too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 08:32:46 PM
Love this shot. The little purple flowers among the grass, and the look of that old tractor...awesome! 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 08:11:25 PM
this is a great shot but I wish you could see more in the main next to the tractor, if it is a man. Making that figure discernable would yield a 10 from me (but I can't vote on member challenges)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 06:01:04 PM
This works for me on all levels - the softness, the placement of the tractor, the gentle color.

01/16/2006 05:03:26 PM
looks like bluebonnets... is this in Texas?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This definitely evokes the idea of an era gone by. It's quite melancholy in that it also implies that the strengths of that era have been discarded and are no longer cherished. I like the purple flowers and fence. I'm not sure the dark tree line adds to the shot. I'd also love to see this taken during the afternoon when the sun casts a much richer colour of light onto the image.

I have a feeling I would have preferred it without the excessive desaturation
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 01:58:42 PM
The muted colors and good contrast work well. The grove in the background adds an element of mystery.
