You know, Patricia, human race has invented HDR for a reason, but I assume nobody told you. Where are the details in the shadows, where is the gray nuclear sky? I want to see every blade of grass on the ground in its full Velvia-green glory. You missed your chance and presented us instead with yet another deeply emotional color palette, brooding atmosphere and a sense of mystery.
I agree, but the darkness gives the picture a mellow feeling. A feeling of darkness, death, and... well sad stuff. I think she took a picture that could have been better. It's good, but not amazing.
