    Winter Grass by Kev Pugh, on Flickr

    The PP is done in Fuji's Silkypix RAF RAW file converter, something I didn't like but having played with it it has some nice little tweaky sliders...:D

    Very nice Kev. The tone and the vignetting work very nicely with this composition.

    Loving it - I like the the way you've got really low to make the grass stand out against the skyline, and then the B&W treatment really works here.

    Thanks Guys, Chris I was actually stood to take this and I'm Six Foot Four :D:D, the trees behind are on the far bank of the river, amazing how we perceive things and to be honest how you have seen it is exactly how I perceived it to be...the pp is part preset and part manual tweaks to suit ..thanks again

    Love the tones and composition Kev but I find the softness of the vignette a bit at odds with the sharpness of the grass. I'm missing some grain or similar I think.

    Cheers Pete seeing you point could probably do with some grain thanks

    I must admit I am not too sure about the vignette but the way the image is layered works really well, especially with the toning used.

    I'm with Paul I think!
    I'm not shy of te odd vignette, but I think this sort of thing works when it's a bit more stark as opposed to closed in ... Does that make sence?
