Jim, The textures, colors, lines, contrast and time of day make this lavender shack a winner. Great job. #1947

I agree with everything Donna Rae said. This is a really terrific composition! The rich, golden tones and interesting textures make this image look almost surreal. Love it! #2989

Thanks very much for your kind comments.

I too loved the rich tones that resulted from this special polarizing filter. I generally shy away from most filters but as soon as I looked through this one, I said "I gotta get me one of those."

Here is an original - so you can see the difference. #3560

Wow, what a difference!!! I love both shots, and I usually prefer the contrast. The original has such perfect coloring and a beautiful clear blue sky to compliment the image, but that polarizer really sets the mood! I think you can make out the texture in the shack more, and I love how the polarized version captured the symmetrical curved lines in the field. I also prefer the tighter crop. The golden hues just really make the image look so dreamy. I think you are right ... you've gotta get yourself one!!! #3579

A friend lent me his gold polarizer for this shot.
