Field of Dreams   Featured in Digital Darkroom #065
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Field of Dreams
Field of Dreams

To add a little more visual interest--and because I didn't like the shade of green in the original capture--I shifted the hue to this color and adjusted the saturation.

Thank you, Cheryl, Renata, and Daniella! I appreciate your encouraging comments! One of the challenges I had with capturing this field of grass was that the light kept changing (clouds) and the wind was unpredictable ... but the scene itself was wonderfully "dreamy" looking.

Looks like a parade of Vegas show girls or flamingos. Love the color, great job.

Hi Chuck ... thanks for stopping by and commenting! There were a couple of patches of this grass in a huge field, and the shimmering effect really caught my attention!

This has a wonderful carefree, breezy feel to it Cary! GREAT color to 'showcase' the movement of the grasses!

I had missed this one too Cary! What a great change and result with the hue slider! This field looks like one of those sugary kids cereal that will be followed by Pepto-Bismo :0) Great light, action and full frame COLOR!!

Thanks, Murry! The original color of these grasses was a pale, grayish-green...so, I thought I'd shift the color and give it a new look! The new color is a bit like purged strawberry pop, ice cream, and Pepto-Bismal. ;-)

Thanks for dropping by and leaving me a comment, Stephen! Last week I went to the area where I shot this photo (in 2008), to see if the grass had gone to seed yet, and the whole field looked completely different. I'm glad I was able to get the shots I did, last year.
