I liked the color combination hidden in this scene.

Comments welcomed.

The colours are fabulous but I find the slightly out of focus foreground distracting. Ken

I agree; particularly the central stalk.

Thanks to all for your comments.  I have mixed feelings concerning the foreground distraction.  Sometimes I am distracted and sometimes I am not
distracted.  When developing the image I tried to find a foreground crop point that would eliminate any possible distraction.  However, whatever I attempted
created a new potential distraction.  When I view the image as an expression of color I do not see the distraction.  When I view the image as a composition of trees, dried grass, etc. I do see the distraction.  I hope this all makes sense.

No matter the minor critiques, it is quite striking in its composition. Well seen.

Lovely. But like the others, I wish you had stopped down for complete depth of field.

I like it as it is. I see the foreground as a (secondary) complement to the background, in terms of colours and tones.

Again, the thanks for the positive comments and smart criticisms.  If I had the chance to again shoot this scene
I would add more depth of field just to avoid any distraction.  If you view this image from a proper viewing distance as opposed
to looking at it on a computer screen that is close to the eyes the distraction -- at least to my eyes -- disappears.
My eyes first focus on the layer of orange in the middle of the image.

Beautiful painting.

Thierry

Totally agree, if you can shoot something that looks like a painting, then the image will more often than not turn out to be a good one IMHO.

..and I think this image is a really good example that confirms this idea very well indeed - excellent  :)

I agree about the out-of-focus foreground being an issue. But, otherwise it is a beautiful and subtle image.

Thank you Sakols, Dave, and Peter.  One of the benefits of living somewhere that is drab and dark for four months out-of-the-year is that it forces you
to look deeply to find something interesting and beautiful.  I was lucky to "see" this image.

Hi Mark, perhaps I might offer a suggestion - have you tried to clone out the three little cut stalks that "pop" out of the bottom of the frame? Without those, I think the OOF effect of the stalks would be much less evident, and much less distracting :) Just a suggestion of course. Best regards,

Thanks, Vieri.  I played with lots of different crops and all of them suffered from some defect.  I will try your suggestion
and see if I can't mitigate the distraction.
