A striking image, Robin! I love the oil painting feel to the background, capturing the colors of field, hill and sky just right. The color of the grass/wheat in the foreground is a little startling at first, but not in an unpleasing way, and to see the grains bending horizontally is not typical. Can I ask how much the colours have been tweaked in post-processing? Very nice.

hi Keith - thanks for the positive comment -i realise my style might not be to everyones (the purists) taste! I'm particularly interested in the realm between reality and imagination - (photography and painting), so i like to push the colours/contrasts etc as far as i can before the picture stops working. I use an extremely basic version of iphoto, and basically juggle the enhance/brightness/contrast settings repeatedly - tempted to look at photoshop but am in no rush.

I think you've been successful at combining the two here. Realism and imagination seem to me like ends of a spectrum that are available to artists in the fields of both photography and painting - I know of realistic painters and impressionist photographers. Again, thanks for the image, and the creative stimulation!
