Renata Gusciora 6/26/2008 10:49:04 AM

Love the color! #6110179

Daniella Puente 6/26/2008 11:34:48 AM

You did right Cary, this looks AMAZING! #6110339

Cary Rogers 6/26/2008 3:41:57 PM

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. #6110964

Chuck S. Frizzell 6/26/2008 11:40:59 PM

Looks like a parade of Vegas show girls or flamingos. Love the color, great job. #6111926

Cary Rogers 6/27/2008 8:41:18 AM

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! #6113555

Dianna Hauf 7/7/2008 9:31:28 PM

(lol, Chuck)
This has a wonderful carefree, breezy feel to it Cary! GREAT color to 'showcase' the movement of the grasses! #6152260

Thanks, Patricia~! :-) This photo wasn't a recent win, though; it was clear back from July 2008. I use it in my gallery as a placeholder for the beginning of a new contest month. Thanks again! #7115982

Murry Grigsby 2/16/2009 1:52:09 PM

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!! #7172902

Cary Rogers 2/16/2009 5:19:24 PM

Thanks, Murry! The original color of these grasses was a pale,, 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. ;-) #7173487

M.Christine Duncan 2/27/2009 7:00:25 AM

Like a dream!!! I realize this is an older win, but congrats anyways... the light and color are divine! #7222028

A real eye catcher Cary. Would look just perfect in my dining room. Very nice work! #7596593

Cary Rogers 6/4/2009 10:14:46 AM

Thank you for your great comments, Karen, and Dick! Although I would have preferred less wind when I sot this field, it worked pretty well with the subject matter. #7597152

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. #7656517

Diane E. Deming 8/26/2009 6:53:44 PM

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.
