Stay with the 'art' versions! Always good at them, as I recall.

I have one very similar in feeling that I bought from the photographer Francis Annet in his gallery in Sarlat, Périgord. I have it above the bed. I love the separation of valleys by mist. I have a second one of his pictures hanging above the bed too (separated by a painting by my cousin when an art student), this second photograph being a close-up of some older grapes on the vine, with much OOF effect. Love 'em both.

I wish I could do that kind of picture, but I simply never quite see it for myself, only recognize it when it's already somebody else's picture. ;-) I have a feeling that it might be a long-term effect of shooting travel stock. Very different animal, at least, in my time in the trenches.

P.S. That part of France, the Dordogne, is very similar to some parts of Scotland, only the food you can buy out is better, far better and much cheaper, too! Or it was, twelve years ago...

The main thing I'v learnt with that kind of scene is don't remove the changes in contrast the mist creates, if anything exaggerate them in post a little increasing foreground contrast and lowing it in the misty background(although I only did the former on that shot).

I remember a few holidays down in the Dordogne during my youth but more recently what comes to mind is Ridley Scotts The Duelists that was mostly filmed there and has plenty of mist on display, required viewing for landscape photographers IMHO.

Haven't seen that; must try to get hold of it somewhere. Regarding the Dordogne: we used to stop for a night or two at a place on the N20 called Hostellerie de la Paix, in a little hamlet caled Payrac, which marks the N20 junction with the road to Rocamadour and then St. Céré; it used to be a Logis but I think no longer is. We used to look upon it as a haven...

Maybe not up to the standards of Alien and Bladerunner overall but it looks amazing and Keitel is great in it as ever, has the best looking ending to a film...

Thank you very much! I shall watch when it isn't quite so late in the evening and I doze off before seeing what I'm seeing!

This does not look like much until you click for larger version. Well done muntanela, love the out of focus motif of the larger parent tree.

It really is a 'juicy' shot! Great colours.

Thanks. These old small apples have a rich, complex yet delicate flavor, impossible to find today. They should be preserved in some way.

The first one, with the crepuscular beams.  Kills.

Both look really good, but the crepuscular rays is very dramatic.

A less moody & eye-catching contribution from me. After all, you can have too much of a good thing

Lovely. Perhaps even better without the light, blurry line to the middle left?

You are right. At first I had deleted it, but eventually I left it. I do not remember why, maybe because it is a spider silk thread.

The spider thread keeps it from becoming a stock shot...perhaps a good thing. It's all about purpose.
