I spotted this magnificent field of rape in the countryside around home. Black and white conversion and a bit of orton effect.
Your c&c are as always highly appreciated, thanks in advance for your time.
PS larger is much better
Details: Eos 50D, Tokina ATX-Pro 12-24 f4, GND 4x, tripod. Stitch of 5 verticals
A really stunning mono image, superbly processed.
An incredibly beautiful shot!
Superbly composed, shot, stitched and processed, Paolo.
I can't help feeling, however, that it may be even better in colour!
I'm a very big fan of mono images, and this is a very fine example of the genre, but I do think that one of the most beautiful things about fields of rape is actually the intensity of the colour they possess. Particularly when seen against a powerful and portentious sky, such as you have here.
Or even some sort of hybrid colour/mono image, perhaps?
Just a thought or two.....
In any event, this has found itself high on my shortlist!
A beautifully captured shot indeed. I also agree maybe a good subject for colour as they are indeed a wonderful site to see. Maybe you could post again in colour? A great job though but I think will be a WoW in colour.
What a beautiful image
Thank you Ricky and Bill for commenting on this. Bill, you're right: this of course looks really good in colour, but I'm currently preparing a new gallery for my website with only b&w images in it and I've noticed that this perfectly fits in there. The "luminescence" of the rape against the dark ominous sky in the bg has quite a strong impact imo.
Ok ok, I will post it in colour tomorrow!

Excellent! I'm looking forward to seeing it!
As you say, this is rather wonderful in mono, too!
Lovely looking photo.
Excellent large and diferent approach Paolo. Ron.
Love this in mono with the touch of Orton, it all suits the image perfectly.
