Beautiful scene with great clarity, color and detail, JP. I love the lines of the composition with the road leading in on the diagonal and the horizontal interest of the farm buildings. You got the buggy at just the right moment, too. #1257826

Jean- In taking some time to go though your gallery, I was treated to some of the most beautiful images. You certainly have the talent to bring out the best in what ever your subject. Beuatiful art.
Love the wide open image you have here. The composition and the view you give us lets us take so much in. Its as if you have left nothing out. That road is such a beautiful lead to the farm and then the horse and buggy, well thats just so special. Gorgeous colors, amazing lighting, love all the buildings and the sparpness of every detail. Amazing work my friend.
Have a great day, enjoy. #8529474
