I saw this very isolated little "homestead" way out in the sticks during a business trip that looked like it would look good "captured", so yesterday I went back there, making sure that I would be there just before sunset. It seemed to come out OK, perhaps not what Ihad in my mind [Any comments, what changes to make, what to look for ??] One thing i thought is that maybe in week's time the burnt grass will have a little bit more green in it, not too much, and that could enhance it [except the washing might not be there, which I think adds a nice touch to the pic]



Regards from a "nearly Spring" SA

My eyes were drawn to the colorful clothes on the line, I like the way they add to your photo!

I like it:!: I wouldn't worry too much about the burnt grass either: it adds to the "dryness" of the scene. Well OK, maybe you could go back and do a "new life" shot of the green shoots coming through as well, but that's a different kind of image altogether IMO.

Regards, John.

Thanks John and Bob, I'll go back sometime and see what else I can do with it [only thing it's a 220km trip]



Regards

Like it as it is, Jake - the colourful clothes highlighting a bleak foreground with the wintry hues of the hut. Good!

Thanks bboy, zolbol and peri, Craig - Welcome back [or is that for me ??] Haven't had much time to photograph lately, but we're off to the Kruger Park in 12 DAYS TIME [for a 17 day stay !!], I'm busy getting all my equipment ready [last year I had the FZ10, so ALL the equipment consisted of a spare battery and SD card, now it's a laptop, external DVD writer, 50 or more DVD's, two bags and cases of lenses and accessories, sturdytripod, bean bags, [oh, and don't forget the camera!!]

Are you still coming out to SA in October ?





Regards

Hi Colin,

Yes - still coming in October. I saw some ducks flying south a couple of days ago, so made me think about booking our plane tickets. :-)

We will be moving to a new house with a bit more land so hopefully I'll be able to get lots of bird and small wildlife stuff.
