All of these photos are of the same farm taken within 30 minutes of each other. I walked my way around and took various shots to see which I liked best, but in the end, I liked all of them for different reasons.
To get that dark sky, I used selective color (pushed up the black and yellow in the blue and cyan) and curves adjustments.
Oh wow...what brilliant, almost surreal shots the last two are! Fantastic!
frankly I am sure that, you must be as beautiful as your pictures and in all simplicity I say to you, I love you.
Have a nice sunday
Definitely the last one!
I would even say, I would rather see ONLY the last one - it is so dramatic, overwhelming, anything else next to it seems just... not enough!
I love the vivid colors. I love that I can relate to each picture you take, becuase it reminds me so much of where I live, on a farm :)
My god look at those colors!
The colors are amazing in these photographs. Everything seems surreal; almost dreamlike. Images from the movie "What Dreams May Come" flicker through my mind's eye as I look at you work. Great job!
Amazing sky! I love how all of your shots seem to carry this soft, unreal quality about them.
The last one is a surrealistic color delight! :)
nice, nice,... very nice!
Love the simplicity of your compositions, and really enjoy the contrast and saturation you put into your photos. Keep up the great work!
Number five is very striking - I love the sky - you created the impact a storm on a sunny day!
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Your eye for landscapes is incredible. The color and light...wow.
Beautiful - I like the "Farm Dog on Duty" one the best.
I really like View III, but View V is my favorite. Astounding colors as always!
Wow, what an amazing sky, absolutely stunning...
These are all beautiful, but I especially love the first on with the expansive sky and the house on the horizon.
What a fantastic series of this farm house. I took like them all and for different reasons. 1) Simply because of the minimal land and wonderful big sky. 2) I like the house through the vines, this perspective makes me feel like I am looking through the vines. 3) I like the sign on the tree and then the winding road to the house. 4) I like the way that sky and the hill lead you to the house. 5) The sky is so dramatic and the colors are so fantasic and then having that old tree soaking them both up is priceless.
What a way to start my week. Thanks.
Holy Crap! That last one is so amazing!! Can you a make a large desktop version!? :) You rock!
Farm View V is yet another masterclass in how to work colors effectively. Woof!
What a wonderful series of photos. I am particularly fond of the third photo with the highly saturated colors, making the sky almost look stormy. Although I'm sure it's not the effect you were aiming for - I could easily see some of these shots being used for horror movies or something!
The last one is a true work of art. And again my question is what lens settings did you use for this bunch of landscapes? The last time I thought you didn't even own a wide angle, but this just looks so "wide".
Fantastic blue sky and the warm color of the ground! It's a great, great photo.
Fabulous... no other words. Perhaps envy. I like the last one. The way the tree stands infront of the sky in the background, I just love it.
These shots are great. The sky looks amazing.
I really like these beautiful shots... especially the first and last ones.
The nice thing about photoblogs is that they are a place for inspiration for the viewer and a place for critiquing for the artist.
I like most of the compositions a lot. What fantastic trees! The colors in the greens and yellows seem too saturated to me. Mainly in Farm View III. And overall each image seem just a tad dark. My favorite is Farm View V because of the simplicity of the shot. A wonderfully shaped tree against an exciting sky of clouds. Nice one.
You changed colors so much that the photos look like shots from a theatrical performance. And it's a great show :)
YAY YAY YAY to your color photos Kathleen! I love your b&w's (don't get me wrong), but thank goodness for sunny days and your color photos. :o)
Farm View V has the pathos like an Andrew Wyeth painting. Terrific!
These are all magnificent but Farm View V is stunning.
HOLLY COW! this is GREAT!
I realized that I like to look at the last picture every day. The blog hasnt changed since monday, but it is so good to realize every time: this calming tree is still there. Good.
the hole set is just one thing: awesome!!!
sorry, "hole" of course should be "whole"
As always Kathleen, just beautiful. Love viewIII. Coming Home.
THE MOST AMAZING PHOTOS EVER! well done
haha, this is so awesome it's funny! The last one is just... well it's a dream.
Absolutely beautiful. Love the powerful dark blue sky.
Farm View III! Hands-down best photo I've had the joy to lay my eyes on in your blog!!
Blimey, I really like the atmosphere created by the sky. Extemely oppressive and gives a vibrancy to the landscape. The colour truly jumps out at you. My preference has to be the last also, that tree. With this sort of light I get but a silhouette but you even managed to get detailing on it.
WOW Lovely captured of the sky's colors
Even though the colors are beautiful in all images, the last is the special one. While the other photos are a little "busy" in terms of composition, the last one with its simplicity and minimal composition make you breath the open space in the fields and the sky, as if being there.
