Default Speed Challenge #29

OK - for the first speed challenge of the New Year I thought I'd set something straightforward, but feel free to use your imagination. The image below is quite dull, not that sharp, has some spots on the lens, but I believe it holds a lot of detail if teased appropriately. See if you can convert it to something more pastoral.



Below is a quick edit + crop I did as an example.



And below is a 1600x1200 file for those who prefer a large file to edit (around 1MB in size).

Max entries are 2 per person. Feel free to do any processing you think is required - e.g. new sky, removal of objects etc, but keep it naturalistic.

I'll run this challenge until Sunday 8th January at around midday (or whatever time I get up).

Looking forward to many entries !

I wanted a bit of golden glow on the foreground and still retain the ominous clouds moving in over the farm. I also cloned out the power lines.

I love the colours of the hay/straw here. Looks much more what I remember in my mind's eye. Excellent work - keep them coming !
