15 to 20 years ago I was out and about at every opportunity at this time of year to capture the Oilseed Rape but recently not bothered.

Out yesterday driving around not heading anywhere in particular I spotted these fields from a few miles away whilst driving through Petworth.

The light was not ideal and normally probably would not have bothered stopping but I had not been out for three weeks and wanted to try out a new accessory bought two weeks ago.

If anyone is down this way I can recommend The Cricketers public house at Duncton for a either pub lunch style snack or something more substantial like Trout.

Hi jjgee - there is alot of interest in this shot ...

but as it stands in my opinion the parts are greater than the whole -

I see it really as a graphic - those swooping lines left to right are what really grabs the eye and need to be brought more into focus -

in brief a bit more sky (if available), a little less FG and the shot comes more alive ... perhaps Smile - more panoramic

Thanks for the comment davidbailie
Some interesting thoughts.


Quote: more into focus

Even after 15 months with the digital camera / autofocus lens I still have problems focussing, even tried setting manual focus mode.

My MF format film camera / lenses were so much more easier to use !!


Quote: more panoramic

Fair point but I think it would have needed something, perhaps even an electricity pylon ! , to break up just a mass of yellow.
