Spring on a Farm

A picture I took about a month ago while on the backside of a pasture, where it meets the woods. Stray trees have grown up along the fence line (thanks to birds who sit and p**p out seeds they’ve eaten), but I thought it created a interesting image with little buds of leaves, the light hitting it, and the green pasture beyond.

Composition and subject are not all that, but I was drawn to the image many times in Organizer, so I decided to give it some PSE love. After that I just kept looking at it, despite its problems, so I thought I would share it here. Not everyones cup of tea, but a few may like it as I do.

For those curious: minor tweaks were done and then two textures (one Florabella and one Kim Klassen) were applied.

  3. this is a gorgeous image. It reminds me of a watercolor. Sometimes the simplest of images make the most beautiful images. Thanks for sharing !

  4. Nice image! I like the light in the background

  5. I love it. I need to get out with my camera more. I am “stuck in a rut.” I haven’t had the camera out for just taking pictures in awhile–buried under school work, obligations, and all that. Maybe this afternoon after the egg hunt and the sun comes out.

    • I don’t know. I think the colors and the barb wire at the bottom. I’m a sucker for barbed wire. LOL Good thing I ended up on a farm. 😉

  9. Problems – what problems? It’s beautiful!

    • Betty, the picture isn’t quite balanced, something is a little off. That is okay, I figured if it kept drawing me back, then maybe it wasn’t half-bad. LOL

  13. Beautiful! How did you process this? Is it a texture?

    • Sandy, I did a Levels adjustment to brighten the fence post and did a gradient to make the blue sky a little bluer, then added one Florabella texture and one Kim Klassen.
