Hot breezy, the hay dried quick and is now baled. This is the farm next door to my daughters place.

Love the B&W version! One can get better details of the sowing. I can only imagine the wonderful smells of the freshly cut hay. I went many times with a friend to buy hay for his horses when I lived in Montana. Smile Love this picture...Thanks for posting it!

The colours don't look quite right to me but the mono is superb, Sandy. The house is well placed on the thirds with lines leading towards it, and lots of detail and lovely light.

An extremely competent composition Sandy, one which for me takes all the right boxes, and contains all the right photographic ingredients. Both images work extremely well, however I am drawn slightly towards the monochrome, both clarity and quality in depth.

I like both for different reasons. I prefer the sky in the mono version, but feel there is a greater sense of depth in the colour version.

The mono works for me - amazing tones and textures.
With that strong sky there are almost too many colours in the colour version.

In the mono the sky looks like a red filter was used for contrast. The bailing of hay is going on here too. In the field next to where I stalk the elusive butterfly. I like the mono. TG
