[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As you know, I live in big city with almost one million inhabitants. Lodz was known in Poland as a city of factories, big chimneys and industry. It was called 'dirty' or 'grey' place. Maybe it was truth just after Second World War, but not now :-) I took this picture on colorfull fields not far away from my house. Maybe one kilometer, maybe less. I live in big housing estate full of big, concrete blocka, but also near The Botanic Garden, meadows and such fields. This is amazing place for every nature lover :-)

HI Greg, you do have some wonderful open spaces around you, and look at those wild flowers and those trees in the BG. So this land belongs to no-one, it can't be built on? Well I hope not.
Well composed with the lovely blue and white Polish sky :)
Thank you for showing us your place.

Beautiful landscape Greg, great shot. I think this is a spring picture, it is a dandelion meadow in the bg. Great sharpness, excellent colours and great POV and DOF. I like it very much. Thanks for posting.

The colors are very nice. It shows the area well. I like where you placed the horizon. The landscape is a bit "flat" but it's an objective opinion. Well done.

Beautiful landscape,lovely POV.

I really love looking at this place! It's one of the small places wild near us.
Fantastic colours.

Hi Grzegorz!

Excellent sharpness and exposure. Composition is well balanced according the the rule of third. And you chosed the right day with those beautifull clouds, I love them. Personnally I don't really mind grain (or noise) in a picture, here it is a little bit obvious in flat blue area of the sky, but not in the field. Be carefull to ISO rating if you don't like it, if not as I said it's not a negative point in my opinion. I often kneel down when I take such a picture to increase magnification on FG flowers. It's a different vision, yours is as good as mine. The way you did it, flowers don't compete with the clouds, my way it would have unless the clouds wouldn't have been so pretty.
Simple but very effective landscape, excellent work and TFS.

Hi Greg,
Excellent capture, Good sharp detail and colours. Great POV.
Nicely composed and good exposure. The cloud patterns look fantastic.
Thanks for posting. Enjoy the rest of the week.

The region I live in is equally flat, but our biggest hill is no more than 2m high ;)
It's a lovely shot with great summer mood and great summer colours.
I like it very much!
