(smile) I think I recognize the field from other work of yours... :)
nice feeling/atmosphere and sense of lightness! :clap:
but it seems to me that the "zooming" texture close the view and goes (metaphorically) "against" the wide/open feeling...
what do you think?

It is so good when you say these things ilil!

I think I have been hooked on vignette's (what I call your "zooming"texture), for a long time. I associate them with a holga film effect, and I like them very much. Now, I think I have become overly dependent on them, and stopped seeing them properly for what they are. It really helped me when you talked about the zooming effect. It made me see this effect in a new light.

Yes, it does go against the wide/open feeling of the field. Regrettably I don't think I still have all the layers with this pic, or I would go back and see what it looked like without the 'zoom texture.' As it is, hopefully I will think more carefully before applying this effect in future. I also need to try out more subtle vignettes, with different shapes and different emphasis. I could have done a different type of vignette, which would have emphasised rather then detracted from the width of the pic .

Thank you very much for raising the issue :gomp:

I had a thought while reading your answer - it could be interesting to try the same "zooming" texture but an opposit one... meaning - starting (in the middle) with a kind of gray/ ochre and going out till white in the edges... I'll call it "fading out" texture, cause i believe it will creat this effect ... personaly, I would prefer to imagin this field/scene fading out (like it's a kind of far memory or a dream) ... actually I would like to try it myself... I'll look for a suitable image for that "fading out" feeling :) :rose:

I don't know why but I am not very enthusiastic about those... I think it is a little prejudice of mine :(
