The atmosphere in this is something else - I can almost feel the tension in the air - and gorgeous light GrinGrin

The only (little) niggle is the dust bunny/sensor spot in the clouds Wink

That was sloppy of me. Thanks for pointing it out Alda. I can correct the tiff file before I print.

Wow, I thought it was going to be in Tuscany! Love the repeating wheat heads, the blowing trees supplying movement and the dramatic story sky. The sweeping lead in is excellent too. A very powerful image! My only thought would be to loose the trees at the left frame edge; they are dark and a bit distracting and being cropped they are much less satisfying that the distant trees and slightly unbalance the comp to my eyes. I guess you loose some FG if you crop but there is plenty of it and it appears to be all sharply focussed so I think this beautiful image would withstand it. Smile

I like the moody sky and leading in lines, and i can imagine it looks even better when the wheat turn brown in a few weeks time. Also another great location to do portrait. I agree with Almiles the tree on left is distracting.

Thanks for that Alan. I took quite a few shots with different compositions including and excluding the trees on the left. I still like the inclusion of the nearest trees as I think they give some interest in the mid ground in what is a very simple composition. That said I have a few shots where the gap between the trees and frame opens up due to the wind and that does look better.
I decided to go with this shot because the sky was particularly good and I liked the movement of the wheat in the near foreground.

I could have picked this out as yours from a thousand others with no bother. Now all I need to do is figure out how you do it! Grin Wonderful image, Derek.

Lovely depth to this Derek, I like the lead-in lines and ominous looking sky!

It's all been said Derek, you've picked a good location, the sky helps add drama to the scene but like others those trees on the left are a little distracting, but that's a niggle to an otherwise very fine image.

Opinion seems to be evenly split on those trees to the left.
