Default Rice terraces

Worked a little bit on this one. One soft pass on Martins hdr, correcting lens distortion, ev, selective levels and sharpening, etc. Trying to get inside pse8. Hope you like it.

i really like this shot Ordo.

really a nice landscape with plenty of interesting things to see. its composed nicely with some great layers and lines.

more than that it really gives me a feeling of being there, and what its like to be looking out over this rice terrace scene. very interesting place, i would love to visit something like this.

the processing looks good.

Thanks. Rice fields are poetic, wonderful photo subjects. I missed a lot of them. It's interesting to see the different stages of rice cultivating: terraces where the land is broken and prepared, terraces where the rice is just growing, a simple but clever draining system that connect all terraces, etc. These lands are millennium old, not just centuries. Hard work also.

Ordo,

This is one very rich photograph, Attention is
immediately drawn to the ricefield and then to the houses. Clever composition. From the houses back to the rice field

And still the adventure has just started. A world to discover. Masterful. (Inter) National Geographic

Default A good-one, Ordo!

Very nice and cleverly framed scene. Good 'lead-in' by the path, diagonal to the houses and then spread out to the terrasses. Rich tones and fresh colors. I like it!

Thanks Walter and Torgny. Do you think it's a little over the top? I have a less saturated version.

It's a wonderful shot ! My perfect saturation would be something in between your first and second picture.... but that's personal. Color and composition are absolutely great !

Ordo,

It's not like we all have inter calibrated monitors. On my 8 bit monitor the second one looks most natural - Details also show even better

To make things worse for you, I like edit # 1 best. But this is a matter of taste only.
