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 Wink

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.....Smile

In any event, this has found itself high on my shortlist!

Cheers

Bill

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.

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.

Excellent! I'm looking forward to seeing it!

As you say, this is rather wonderful in mono, too! Smile
