Beautiful composition. Love the twisting ditch that leads right to the tree. The tones in the image excel.

Beautiful! Love the color and the low-angle of the light.

Looks lovely mate. The gradations in the photo are superb.

Thanks, this was not the composition I was originally intending, but once the light hit just right, it was an easy choice on this one.

Exactly what drop me to this composition, I'm just glad I nailed focus as several were out of focus after readjusting

Thanks for the comment.

Here is a 6-photo, vertical pano I took of the same location about 10 minutes before the shot above to give the viewer a wider perspective of this same location. I really like the pond in the lower corner, but the hill side kept cutting into the photo no matter what I tried for the composition. At the end I just kept the hill as part of the overall composition in the vertical pano.

After looking at the first image above, I was going to tell you how much I liked it and then suggest that the location practically screams out for a multi-image stitched panorama. I scrolled down and saw that you actually did that too. This is the kind of location where I would be sure to do that -- capture as much as possible with multiple images and stitch them together later. Once I have the full stitched image assembled, I like to look for cropped compositions that appeal to me.

Of course, I also like to find compositions on site and capture them in a single frame, if possible. But I think both techniques are valid.

The location also seems like a good candidate to explore with an infrared camera.

In any case, both of these are beautiful.
