    Lupine & Oaks that is. No poppies interspersed
    A friend spotted this in Carmel Valley, so I had to visit
    This was on grazing land, this is as close as I could get
    This was spread across a few acres so I went with a pano/stitch for the 1st two

    Neat scenes - I like the free hills and the blooms.

    The images seem a bit on the bright side. I might be inclined to bring the shadows and blacks down a bit to add some emphasis to the saturation levels if these were my shots.

    Hey Dan,

    That's a really cool area you came across!

    I am with Alan, that these feel a little bright, but also the colors aren't quite right and I know that reflects back to your being color blind. Though the more I look at these, it could be just a brightness issue that is throwing everything else off.

    Putting these in the Critique forum or contacting Ben so that for instance that #3 image could be used for Let's Play would be a fun project to see what others might be able to bring out in these.

    Jim, Alan, 5D2_3134_36_190413_P2w.jpg here's a slight rework. Do I just post the photo to the "Let's Play" forum?

    I definitely like this one better Dan!

    Ben explained how to submit a Let's Play photo. Be sure to work with Ben since he coordinates it all.
