Rolled by victorwol Rolled by victorwol
Sunset HDR close to Shenandoah. Last few minutes of light
:iconcdpstudios:
'Rolled' is a great exposure. The overall feeling I get from looking at this shot is one of peace and tranquility. I can almost hear the soft rustle of cattle as they roam the field. I can feel the warm air wrapping me in its soothing blanket. But this subtle shot isn't with out its problems.

Color
The color is gorgeous. The 5D and the photographer behind it certainly had the perfect timing. The clouds make a wonderful backdrop. The color of the grass just beneath the roll is a perfect little detail.

Technique
The use of technique here is great. The colors were really brought to the foreground almost becoming the subject itself. The background has just the right amount of detail and clarity to make it a mystery. There is a slight problem however when zoomed in enough. This problem is with the outlines of the distant trees. The colors are way overstated creating a definite outline. I'm unsure if it's the technique or just an artifact of digital photography itself. I doubt anyone would look close enough to even see it or that the shot would be blown up big enough to view.

Originality
These types of point of view shots are entertaining. I can imagine that the scene itself was all the inspiration you needed. No extra fluff or subtle hints behind the shot. The picture begged to be taken and you had the eye to respond to that!

Overall a beautiful photo which would brighten up anyone's day! This certainly has inspired me to look beyond the simplistic shots I have been doing as of late. I am sure this will inspire others too!
