Apologies for not commenting/replying to comments for the past week – I’ve been out of phone/internet range on a photography workshop! It was sort of nice to be ‘disconnected’ for a while, but it’s also nice to be home and checking out what everyone’s been photographing while I was away!

    Very beautiful work Mieke, I think I prefer this golden one to the flatter ones. For me this one has more life, more movement. Not sure if that is because of the colour or the comp. (maybe because of the angle of the cow and the girl having space to move into.)

  • I agree, Garth – but the colour was so strong that it was a bit overpowering so I made a few sepia ones aswell :) Thank you!!

  • … and thank you for taking the time to explain what you like about it too. It’s always really helpful to know what works (and what doesn’t!!)

    I have to say I love this sunset scene with colour too, it’s so much more dramatic to me!

  • :) Thanks, Mel!! Great feedback… I actually have the others in the original colour too… Might review them again!
