Western Australian Farmland

Shooting farms in Western Australia has a real short time frame in which to see them when they are green and lush. The current winter seems to be one of the wettest I can remember and has produced some very nice lush green farms. WIth that I have been scouting and shooting farms of late. No canola farms as we have seen way to many of those images already, just nice green lush farms … Come late October they will be back to looking brown before almost gong to dust in summer …

    Nice rural shot Neal. You are right, the country is looking very nice there atm. Living in an agricultural/coastal region I’m constantly going through phases of wanting to shoot the ‘farm/rural’ aspect…green here as well…though I just haven’t been in the right place at the right light for what I have in mind yet.
    I love the light and depth you got in this one. 🙂

    Yay, no pano!!! I think the vignette is too strong though or the contrast is less than it could be. Something about the background trees that doesn’t look quite right.

  3. Thanks tony & james. I think the jpeg crush killed the web preview of this image a lot.

    I agree with you about the old canola fields.. although they are pretty photogenic. I like this shot though. Its cool. It actually looks a bit like mist in the background… but then again that could be my monitor! Im actually off to my folks-in-law’s tulip garden in Boyup Brook in a few weeks so hopefully might come back with something like this one. Nice work!

    it is a great shot Neal but James is right the vignette looks bizarre… (which as you said probs is just the web)
    really enjoying your shots lately mate! Lucky you have been travelling a bit!!

  6. Thanks Josh Thanks Dylan …. I don’t see the bizarre vignette myself there is 2 stops between the layers. It is a little over sharpened for the web version and the vignette is a result of a 2 image layered 2 stops apart with some % rubbing out of the underexpose layer to reveal the over exposed layer.

    looks ok to me.

  8. nice mate, you sharpen better than most people in the country, you could cut yourself just looking at your pics. great work

  9. Thanks Merv

    Thanks CF – trying out new sharpening method … so far so good

    Beautiful…those greens are so vivid and rich! Excellent shot. In California the green season is just getting started…the recent storm dropped 7.5 inches of rain here in San Luis Obispo!
