Summers Memory Squared by kkart Summers Memory Squared by kkart
Summer, I love Summer in Colorado, especially this time of the year ...wildflower season! It is my favorite season of the year, well...almost, Autumn holds that title. Anyways, for this shot I wanted something that represented a lot of atmosphere, a sense of emotion and feeling, so I figured the Golden Banner that were blooming around the Alluvial Fan area of Rocky Mountain National park would make for great subject matter.
Processed in Lightroom 3, Photoshop CS5, shot using my Tamron 200-400mm. I hope you all like it.
---John

The contrast between that dark, gnarled tree and the carpet to bright flowers works really nicely.

Very nice work, John! :)

Square compositions have always been difficult for me.
You sure nailed this one, here.

I so love the DOF in this. The vignetting is quite the accent here as well. The flowers just beg you to walk in to this photo and experience the moment!

Lovely shot!

This composition is lovely and the additional vignetting is very effective! I almost want to say the vignetting is too abrupt, but it walks that line very very well. :-)
