Beautiful photo accompanied by a very good note. The colors and depth are really beautiful. Amazing to get F/22 without any overexposure. Composition and sharpness are spot on. I just keep on scolling up and find myself wondering through the field.

beautiful landscape-shot, david! :-)
i really like the rich green grass with
the single violet lupins in it and the small
forest in the back.
i´ve been around kinneret, but it seems
only in the dry parts. *g*
well done & take care, thor.

This is a lovely picture...not my image of Israel at all! Thanks for sharing it. I agree with most of what others have said above; particularly Emma's comments. It might benefit from a touch of postprocessing to give the whole image a little boost and more impact.

lovely landscape - not something that I had considered for Israel - always thought of it as hot and arid for some reason.
I really like the image, but think you wopudl benefit from a polarizing filter. it helps to saturate the colours more and woudl have made more of the sky. Perhaps even getting a touch closer to the blue flowers at the front and making them more of a feature would alos help.

What a fantastic sight ! Like Aramok, I thought srael was completely different. Looks very green, very natural. Excellent sharpness and details, nice colors and great composition. POV is very nice too. I love the blue flowers, in the grass, they are so beautiful ! very well done !
Nice scenery. Good use of DOF (f14).
I think the grass could be made a bit more alive by pushing the levels there. See my WS please.

Nice image, I love the feeling of open space it gives.
The skies look great but I agree with previous comments about the grass and trees. The workshop by Emma is great.
Keep them coming!

Another lovely landscape from you. It has nice depth and the sky looks superb. I like the colours too. I think that maybe it would be interesting to have one of the lupin plants closer in FG. It would draw the attention and lead the eye to the BG. I have feeling the picture don't have any strong element which would do that and when I look at the picture my eye is just "wondering" around which is not very good.
But overall, it's a very nice post and very interesting note too!
