Burcombe to Lower Woodford Walk

Filed under: Rex — Rex @ 17:00

Described by our walking friends as a nature desert.



  1. I can see why – there isn’t much scope for variety here is there.

    I like the v formed by the path and the crop direction, and the distant lie of the land. You’ve also drumme dup another impressive sky. I suspect my treatment would have been much plainer, if only to fit one of my ongoing themes, but no better I think.

  2. The image is fine, but such a sad scene. Monocultures are not friendly. What is the crop?
    Again with a beautifully dramatic sky, and again, I’d probably prefer the clouds to look a bit softer. I love the way they seem so low over the landscape though.

    • The field we are walking through is stubble from a previous crop. The far field is a verdant green with a new crop growing through. This area is very agro-industry. We did not even see field corners left for wild life.

  3. I like the strong inverted triangle made by the V in the crop and the lighter clouds in the centre.
    Makes a good image from a relatively mundane scene. The masts in the right corner of the triangle work well, too.

    • I used this image to demonstrate the power of Silver Efex to a club member. She is an artist as well as a photographer and I felt that the power of Silver Efex to allow her to interpret the image the way she felt about it would appeal to her. She is now convinced :-) All the bits were in the image (it is a panorama) they just did not have the emphasis that I wanted, so the path to the mast and the crop lines to the left were all emphasised. The colour image lacks drama and impact because the colours are “flat” and the composition elements are lost in the colour. Possibly a good colour worker could do the same thing in colour?
