Driving along a back country road, we happened along a couple of deer feeding in the evening. It was an okay shot, but the deer are very small in the frame. It does show them in the local environment. The late afternoon light is throwing nice long shadows.
Returning to the same location on different days and in different light can make all of the difference. The weather, sky conditions, light and objects in the sky are all added to the mix in every image.
This image was actually taken the week before the one above, but nearly two hours later. The direct light has gone and an after glow, post sunset has filled the sky with a wonderful pink light. There’s a soft natural side lighting on the grain bins and just enough light to see the yellow of the flowering canola. The haze in the air is much greater in this shot, which gave us the great sky color.
Try shooting the same location on different days and at different times, and see how your results vary.
