I like the pattern of the furrows which has been brought out well by the lighting. Personally, I wouldn't have so much sky.

Beautiful image with the promise of new growth and hopefully an early exit from winter.

The mild winter seems to be helping plants along this year.
Such a lovely sight to see new shoots of flowers or crops.

a nice pale blue wintery sky as the backdrop set this off nicely Barbara always like to see the trees naked to see their intricate structures fine capture trust the leg is well on the mend

Like the composition here Barbara, not sure what the predicted cold snap is going to do to some of the new growth.

I bet it doesn't look like that today! The snow around here this morning seems confined to grassy areas and roof tops, and not settling anywhere else, so not very photogenic - that's my excuse anyway for not venturing out with the camera! A fine capture Barbs, like the squiggly lines in the field on the left hand side Smile

Whatever it is it needs to be hardy Tongue although with all the rain it's probably paddy field rice!!

Muy buena!!!!
Tremendous light helped by the composition with the furrows working hard for you. Rape seems to me is usually spaced out more than this crop but I'm no farmer. You may have noticed.

Very lovely, Barbs and pin sharp too. Lots of crops went in in what we farming types refer to as "the back end" and should be well through now, as in your photo.

Wonderful silhouettes...
Now here the green is very fresh and nice ! As up you mentioned mono conversions, here are two filters that don't cost a fortune like nik silver and do the same stuff in a different way!
Topaz b/w is very tweakable and comes with oodles of nice presets, they tend to be either antique or quite graphic. But you will make soon you own
Dxo film pack does colour and b/w film emulation. You can start off with very traditional monos and adapt them as you please. I also like the colour ones a lot. More subtle than topaz.
The price is about the same. Both packs can be tried for a long period for free.
