I agree, the power lines have to go! The sky is pretty but almost over powering the shot. I might have left the blue sky but sharped the color and made the clouds bright white. I love the color and look of the grass and bales. Nice job Julie!

Thank you so much Cathy and Lori for your helpful suggestions!! I don't know why I left the power lines...!? I do agree that they should have been cloned over! I achieved the sky colors by selecting just the sky, then using a filter in the flaming pear plugin called aetherize. Again, I really appreciate your comments!!

Great work! Jury's out w/me on the power lines... They add realism and scale, and they are everywhere, it seems, where farming is...

If you take them out, when you upload the new pix, be sure to include this for comparison!

Wow, I have to disagree with Lori, I think the sky color is what makes this so impressive. I love all the tones and colors in this! I love hay bale shots anyway, and I think this is the prettiest one I've ever seen. Great job Julie! Powerlines gotta go though!

Glorious! (I had to use a thesaurus to find a word more worthy than merely "beautiful.")
