Awesome shot John, that sky is incredible! I normally cringe when I see a shot taken with a tobacco grad, but it works really well here - I didn't even notice you'd used it until I read the comment!

If there was one thing I'd change about this picture, it would be getting a bit closer to the sunflowers, so that the foreground is more flower, and less greenery. You could probably achieve the same thing by cropping to a square format. What do you think?

I like the contrast between the burning sky and the green plants. The clouds at the very top look like afteredited though, did you darken the top of the picture?

John :faint: this is so absolutely beautiful, I have few words.

I love the different layers of vegetation. The stuff in front, the sunflowers, then trees meshed in such perfection.

The sky is absolutely astounding as well.

Something makes me think, I need to just move to Colorado, not just plan a trip, all the seasons are so beautiful!

Another thing I like is how it's 'the end' of them in a sense, they're all drooping and such, since August is the end of summer is I nice addition to the essence of the season.

I'm babbling :O. GORGEOUS shot again!
