You have captured the mood so wonderful, with the sun coming through, illuminating the grass and the tree, not to forget he clouds with the purple in it. Very well done.

Rob - this is my new favorite. I love the rain falling the the sun peeking through. The high notes where it strikes the ground and trees is wonderful.

hi stefan,thanks for the kind words,i'm happy with the landscape colors and contrasts but....hey you know me,the sky is not good enough,yet.it looks a bit to heavy. lightning the darkest values (a bit) and some refective green would fix it...when it's dry,i think.

hi cara,i'm pleased it is your new favorite,especially cos it is a bit different,not so much warm purples,more coler colors...

I like this Rob. You've given us an exciting focus(light illuminating the grass) and also a counter focus...the light farther away in the distance; which speaks of promising weather after this ole' raincloud blows itself out! Very very nice!

don't make me hesitate :-D
