p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Golden Hour at the Fence

This is from a favorite spot to visit near home.
At the top of a climb, the pasture land gets bathed in dusk light about 1/2 hour before sunset. Though the sun drops behind the hills to the west, the color just 'starts" to change. I think the Fall is the best time as the "notch" in the hlll to the west gets aligned with the sun so its a bit lower (3rd shot).

These are slightly different comps as well as I am trying something different on the revisits.

These are all MF film shots, RZ67, Ektar 100
Either 65mm or 50mm, at f8 or f11 for sharpness.

This most recent one being taken near ground level with a 50mm (25mm)
My favorite/sharpest lens!

Previous compositions:
This one take a month or so ago. I think the tree is too prominent .

First shot taken last Fall, 65mm (32mm).
The light really does start to get that orange glow on the moss/fence posts, although is this is film!


Since these are scanned film & I'm a bit color-blind, struggle to get the color right.
So the usual requests for critique & comment.
If you think the color isn't right, say so!

My color vision is fine- but I've been a slide shooter all my life, and like saturated colors .
#1 is really excellent.
#2 the composition doesn't do much for me.
#3 I like also.
Overall, I thing some brightness/contrast might help all of these.
Such as #3:

Very nice. My favorite is #2. The tree trunk and the distant fence gives a nice depth to the scene. Colors in #3 is great.

I like! The warm colors and composition are very nice. On my monitor the sky and distant hillside have a slight cyan cast. Local contrast in shadow values might be enhanced by shooting at half the ISO rating (sorry, I am a Zone System Nerd). I hope to shoot film again soon! Thanks for posting!

Thanks for the C&C.
Always something to try/learn.
Steve, I thought about pushing it a bit more. I did overexpose 1/2 stop but should have gone for a full. Neg film is more tolerant.

Charlie, #1 is also my favorite. I agree on #2. I will return in the Fall to see if the light is better.
