    IMG_20180620_122105.jpg So I'm inordinately proud of this one, which I took on my phone somewhere between Vedene and Saint-Saturnin-Les-Avignons a couple of weeks ago.

    Am I justified, or is it cack?

    No that is definately a fine picture of a purple hedgehog blending in with err! more purple hedgehogs.

    Hee hee... Full image instead of thumbnail uploaded.

    I guess it looks better when blown up to 20" x 16".

    Don't worry. It looks fine. I am rubbish as well, but i don't care. I still take photos and upload them here no matter how bad they are. I like to make others suffer as well. :laugh:
     
  6. You're better than me. Most of my photos slope to the right. I've concluded I must not be standing up straight.

    With my critics hat on, that is not a bad photo. The ratio of purple to blue is appropriate for a purple field. The strip of bare earth is a bit of a spoiler, you could possibly have moved your point of view by a couple of inches a bit to conceal it behind more purple. Apart from that, a candidate for local newspaper photo of the day.

    There's a 'rule' of one third/two thirds when it comes to skies and landscapes - in other words, the pic might look a little better with a touch more sky in it.

    I'd have panned left or right a bit to decentralise the houses in the distance.
