I like this photo!

This is gorgeous with the bright yellow field beneath those delicious clouds, the tree lined road at the left edge to frame the composition. This photo is an advertisement for both your eye and the excellence of the Digital Rebel. Fine work once again, Johh.

A little bit different John, this pix of the blooming field. Very good contrasts in colours and a good panoramic effect..

Wonderful place ! Very good colours of this wonderful field ! The clouds gives a special touch here.
Very well done !

Geen gemakkelijke foto John. Ook niet om te beoordelen. Die bomen rij en die weg, had ik er ook graag helemaal op gehad. Maar gezien jou stijl te kunnen. Ga ik er van uit dat die mogelijkheid er niet echt was. Verder vind ik hem prachtig hoor zeker weten, en wat een kleuren. Goed werk.

John, a beautiful shot. The sky is so beautofgul. And the contrast in the yellow flowers, just great. i would crop out the trees in the left. Just an opinion.

Excellent colours and very good composition, I think that you should take a little more sky and crop the bottom.

Beautiful raps field, great color, good lines, good perspective, good light and contrast, beautiful clouds.

Inderdaad, het koolzaad geeft een prachtig effect. Alleen die halve bomenrij links stoort me een beetje: ofwel had je die volledig kunnen weglaten ofwel de weg er op kunnen zetten. Maar bon: goed werk en goed gezien!

Nice shot. I like the vibrant coloros and the simple composition. Well done John.

Really beautiful John. Colours, contrast, sky and clouds are beautifuly captured. A very nice shot, and, I must say, with the usual placid and calm mood we can appreciate in all your landscapes. Very fine work.

very bold are the colors the composition help gives the photo a 3-d effect relly like the way the horizon and the sky meet wow great shot.

Very beautiful. Great colors. Like a painting, in fact, for sure. I love the sky. The clouds seem so low and so touchable. Just great. Great job.

A feast of colors, John, in this sweeping view above the colza field and a fine topping from the fluffy clouds. A simple but really effective capture thanks to the colors and light. On the very left of the frame I can even see your trademark alley included :-)

Tussen alle koolzaden, hier Uw foto, hele mooie kleuren en ik vind de wolkenlucht echt prachtig, mooi gedaan John !

Après le vert, voici le jaune capturé avec tout autant de brio. La profondeur donnée par les nuages est très bien vue également. Bravo John !

Les fameux champs de Colza si collorés et qui donne ici un contraste saisissant avec le ciel.
J'aime bien l'ensemble de l'image simple naturelle et rés efficace.
Bravo John

De volken en deze geel colza veld is zeer prachtig, john. Goed idee om de weg in de compositie te laten... Bravo, John!

Great John - you beat me on this one - I better look for some similar shots to post - I like to watch and can surely understand why you took this - tanks for sharing - Wonderful clouds ;-)

(So you still can manage yellow fields)

Een hele mooie foto John, niks op aan te merken. De lucht is prachtig.

Very beautiful colors, the composition is really good, can be right a cut of the left part. The sky is really beautiful, beautiful work.

This one cpature my attention. Looks like 2 images united.The colours are great, but the sky is just..fantastic.
Loved it. Very good work

Even though I'm a total amateur with no knowledge of technique, I have the feeling that you pulled several registers to underline the effect of depth, dimension and colors.
In other words nice shot. :-D

Great! You showed us how a simple landscape that we can find everywhere may be composed to a great Van Goch style photo.

Very nice! The geography of the components is perfect. The yellow flowers, the clouds, everything is so beautifull!

Main colors are here. But just red is missing :)
good work

Hi John,

A nice country scenery of the yellow field of colza, the point of view lead our eyes towards the line of trees in the background. The trees are a natural frame of the subject. The light brings out the colors. Have a nice day.

Superb composition, John!!
Wonderful colours and good POV!!!

My congrats!!!

I'm really impressed. Those clouds look like artificial, it's so sharp and colouful. Best regards :)

Hello John,
Lovely looking yellow fields - I'm glad I'm looking at a photo rather than the real thing, I would be sneezing my head off.

Hello, John,
Wow! Just outstanding composition and so wonderful colors! Especially I like this yellow& blue combination! This is your old but very nice photo!
Best wishes,
