simple, yet effective.. i rather like this shot..

i can't help but wonder if there was another shot using that road as a lead in to something.. or if there is something of interest that could be used as foreground..

still, its a very pleasing image.. nice work

thank you Hards80

I wanted to keep the beginning of road outside and use the green volume to balance the volume of the wood on the upper left side

Nice shot Ys.

From all your pics I notice that you were either using a graduated ND filter or blending images in photoshop. If it is the second, your technique is pretty good.

I dont use (gradient, ND or 3diaphragm) filters
I look for the darker part of the landscape
then i do my light metering on an element not so dark to get the darker part just 1 stop at the left middle of my histogramm
so my photo is a lot overexposed
i shoot a second one just in case I have a burned zone
then I combine 2 time the same photo darker and for the sky and normal for the fields

sometimes (many levels) i use 3 or 4 images and 4 lights and 4 focus


i dont know if my englisjh is so clear :-)

Thanks Ys, I understand don't worry.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"This may help your cause some more - check out Fredmiranda.com for an action that pretty much automates the digital blending process.
