Haystacks


I never got out tonight with the camera club as it was raining and I thought no-one would turn up. Later on at 8:00pm it stopped raining and i saw the sky light up like a fog of orange light. I ran, put my shoes on, grabbed my camera and got in the car and headed for the top of Castleside. I no sooner got there than the sky went dark again and the sun went down. Just my luck. However I saw some haystacks in a field and decided to take them. The light wans't brilliant so I decided to have a play in photoshop. I've given them a sort of soft focus painterly effect. I like it... Hope you do.

The first is majestic and the second looks just wonderful, really like a painting. The softness is great!

I love the effect you used, very clever.

i like rainy day photos too ... you can get some really dramatic shots in those conditions..... the clouds in the 1st one look so ominous hovering over that tree.. i like it...

the next one does look like a painting.... i like that also Carole, it looks really neat!
