Bucolic Peruvian Scene

I wanted to try a Hassel-like crop:

And I like the blue-haze on the background, too :wink:


I found it quite challenging to find a balanced composition which somewhat works for me here in between the empty sky and the grass in the foreground. In the end I focused more on the colors. The transition from the golden yellow to the blue sky gives a nice bit of depth.

Like this crop!

That worked really well. It gives a good sense of depth and guides the eye right through to the mountain.

I find the focus on the people who work in the field surrounded by these wide and monumental landscapes very exciting:

By the way, very nice photo!


Very nice edit!

Nice (minimal?) use of the modules, but the way you use the channel mixer is worth mentioning specifically; No-one here, including myself, made those mountains stand out like that.

PhotoFlow, G’MIC, zoom and enjoy!

I really like how you made the details pop up. Maybe i would have choosen for little less saturation, anyway interesting edit!

@Ivan_M76, I can only say again that this is a very nice picture, and your edit looks already quite good to me…


Really nice scenery!

I think that your background is better than mine for sure.

I tried different edits on the photo and i’m never able to achieve the peaceful atmosphere i felt when i was there. The feeling that there the time has stopped.

Before going abstract, I toyed with a similar look as @agriggio’s. The problem with most entries is that they are too intense, esp. the foreground. :hot_pepper: :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
