|Mid-winter at Maldon in Victoria. Winter days can be spectacular. The air is just about straight from the Antarctic. If the sun breaks through the wonderful clouds in the cold air, the light gives us all a lift. Rug up! Go out in the fresh air and anjoy. Maldon is about 100 km North of Melbourne and is just on the northern edge of the Great Dividing Range. The height above sea level is about 300-400 metres and the open plains of the Western District are starting to make a presence.|

Barry, if only you had a polarising filter - it would have brough the clouds out really well.
The picture is really nice, with wonderful details, though I feel that the colours are a bit muted, maybe its the screen I'm on though.
I really like the composition and the format, was there the opportunity for a large format version? It would look brilliant with a touch more saturation..
Out of curisoty, not knowing the area at all, what makes the rocks pink?
I haven't seen any new posts from you lately so went back to see some former shots posted before I "discovered" you. : ) I really appreciate your eye for the simple composition. I noticed Emma' critique and just as I suspected, when I put your photo onto my desktop it gained a lot of saturation. I'm guessing this looked more saturated on your monitor also, as compared with the TN version. You might want to darken your images a bit before uploading. It can be very frustrating at times. I generally convert the color space to "sRGB" (under Image in Photoshop Elements) then darken a bit, sharpen and "Save for Web" The I open the saved version to check out how it will probably look on TN. It's usually pretty close. Some of it just doesn't seem to make sense. I am discovering that what I post is often not what others are seeing on their monitors...which makes critiquing interesting.
