Michael, I like the color combo and the softness to the grass. I do wish the OOF area in the front wasn't as prominent. The lighting looks nice also.

I agree with Denise - that front piece being OOF is a real distraction IMO. Any way you could get one piece of grass alone? Otherwise, I'd suggest getting in super close and going for a texture image!

This is a good example of why I post here. I completely missed the OOF area. I might be able to tone it down by burning the area but now that I know it's there I'm not sure that'll help :D

I can probably find an isolated piece of grass and a similar background Julie. The NWR is about a 2.5 hour drive from home but sometimes I'm in the area for work. I usually make a pass through to see what's going on when I'm in the area.

Hey Michael, in addition to what's mentioned above, I think I'd remove or blur the grass that's in focus on the left edge.
