      Still another attempt at landscape photography in Wisconsin.

      Now you’re talking Lenny. Great image. Nothing to add for ST.

      I’m not a landscape photographer myself, but I do enjoy watching soothing landscapes. Thanks for sharing this vibrant shot Mate.

      Ok,since this is the Shark tank here goes. The one fault I can find is below the barn and extending left and right through the image there is a white line that is quite noticeable. You just need to darken that line out. Other than that, a pretty nice image…

      I see the white line too. It’s major problem. The minor one is imho cloud behind railway sign. Otherways great image.

      I guess it depends on how one sees it Lenny but I vote for keeping the light (white line) on the railway track as it adds to the image IMHO.

      This is a tough one for me. To my taste, the foreground needs a bit more light in it. That might make the white line something that is interpreted more easily and less of a distraction as the viewer tries to figure out what it is. The silhouette is essential to the image so I’m not sure whether you can balance the lightening while preserving the dark.

      I don’t mind the white line too Lenny but it’s angle bugs me slightly. I’d straighten it like an horizon line with a very slight rotation clockwise of the whole image. Apart from spliting that hair, the silhouette looks fantastic against those colours in the sky. Great pic mate!

      Wow Lenny this is very nice.  If it were mine I might lighten the foreground just a bit to give some definition to whatever is there.  If it is not that interesting then I would black it our completely.  Well done Lenny!

      Well, you people are no help.  I was waiting for you to make a decision on the white line!   A coin flip?

      Federico, neither am I.  I don’t have the patience.

      John the foreground is absolute black.  A real landscape photographer would have set up a tripod etc. to make the shot with several different exposures.  I forced my son-in-law to stop in the middle of the road while I shot through an open window.

      Since there is no detail to be retrieved, I suggest a crop to just above the track and down from the mostly empty sky, giving a 1 x 2 or 3 aspect ratio.

      Lenny, I think the white line should stay, it gives a hint of light, and breaks up what would otherwise be a large patch of solid black. Just my thoughts. 🙂

      I really like silhouette, dark, moody images like this. I agree with others, the white line must go. If it was mine, I would crop off more of the black bottom, but that’s just me.  Otherwise, Print it, Frame it. 😉

      Really captures the mood of a rural sunrise.
