Default Sheep in Poppy Field

I visited the poppy preserve near Lancaster, California this past weekend. Outside the preserve I caught a flock of sheep grazing amidst the poppies.

Hey Walter I was out there last Saturday. I drove all the way around the preserve then decided not to go in. I was not very impressed. Maybe it's too early in spring because of all the rain or it's just an off year. I don't remember seeing any sheep though.

I was there Saturday as well. Cars were backed up at the entrance to the preserve so I shot mostly in the surrounding area -- including this shot which was at the intersection of 110th St. and State Road 14.

Obviously, these are not sheep, but our 2 Japanese Chins.

Walter.

i keep looking at this. what exactly did you do with the processing here? sometimes i like the emphasis it places on the poppies and other times i don't like the color cast in the sheep.

Don't recall doing anything extreme, just an auto level, a slight boost in saturation, some sharpening and removal of telephone lines across parts of the sky.

You have some strange looking sheep there in California, Walt! I wouldn't like to meet that herd on a moon-lit night. Looks like something out of a scary-movie...

Sorry, Walter - but this is not you! Have you bought a new monitor, maybe...? If it's the old one - its time to get a new one.

I don't think its your monitor Walter_S.

The sheep look very cyan/green colored to me, and it does so on 2 different computers. And well the whole picture has a strange color cast and contrast for me. Not sure what happened.

Not sure 'bout the sheep photo. They appear cyan/green to me as well. Too much saturation???? I do like the puppy photo.

Here's the same shot as #1, but cropped a bit more and no adjustments to hue or saturation. Any better?
