Captured at a time of day when the soft warm light enhances the crop colour, this image with strong lead in lines is so well composed: even the barley ears are pointing in the right direction.

Suggestion for focus throughout which I think would really benefit an image like this. I like this don't get me wrong..........especially like how the light hits the tops of the grasses and the perspective.

Set focus on manual, set at 3-5 ft (don't know if you are using a prime or zoom lens) - on my 12-60 I set the focal to 17mm, the distance to 3ft, the aperture to f/22, and just shoot. You don't have to focus, everything will be sharp from front to back.

Hi Wefi that is exactly the technique I used. Smile except I tend to use F13-f16 due to defraction setting in at about F18.

If your referring to the slight softness in the barley mid distance, this was caused by the wind, in fact I was trying to emphasise it. If you look at the close fg and the barn they are both sharp.

Beautiful lines. Even the way the wheat is falling into the shot is excellent. Paul
