Still digging into the archives, this landscape is my entry this week for the Alive for 365 project.
When I saw the shadow side of this hill, I noticed how the triangular dark shape divided the yellow grass from the blue sky. By framing the edge of the hill to the very edge of the frame, I was able to reduce this landscape to basic geometric shapes. I darkened the sky, by over-saturating it with a polarizing filter. This also helped darken the winter-dried grass, which was side-lit by the sun. Saturating the colors like this helped simplify the image for more impact.
