Shot this about a half-hour ago. It may be as close to spring as we're going to get around here for a while.

That's very nice! Great color, composition and clean background.

Any chance you can recover highlight detail on the left side? The rest is perfect.

Playing around with your original full frame image with Topaz B&W Effects (new update just came out) for an old-timey landscape look and Topaz Lens Effects for the bokeh.

I like the circular rock formation on the right and feel it helps the image.

There's plenty of information there, so yeah, I could; the .psd looks a little better.

I think I like it this shot more, though.

Agreed; the colors stand out much better. Just get the highlights under control and you're good!

Here are 2 I shot today. I'm trying to get better at cropping.

crayzfly1 - I'm really enjoying watching your progression.

I had a cold and blustery day at the tulip gardens yesterday. Trying to figure out our full-frame camera has me feeling very much like a beginner again.

Thank you plugsnpixels! I must have cropped the second one a dozen times.
Nasturtium, that's very kind thank you. And your collage... WOW look at the colors! I think you and I have two fundamentally different interpretations of "cold and blustery".
