This was taken not far from where I live. There are many fields like this around, the only difficulty is getting the nice weather in Scotland to take advantage of the scenery. This challenge luckily came when Scotland was experiencing its highest temperatures on record! So it was nice to get a chance to see some blue skies.

congratulations on this Tony - it seems to me a very 'British' photograph, and I love the feel of it. Now for a blue, eh?

Beautifull landscape....in portrait format, fit well here.
I love the colors too, and the leading lines in the field.
The sky is superb.

this reminds me of home - very vibrant colors - love how your eye travels down the tractor marks bringing you into the picture

Very nice... love the sharp colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Good landscape shot = 9. The only problem is the spots in the sky, they are small but obvious, is your lens or mirror on your camera in need of a clean?

Great composition. Love the wheel lines. Blues of the sky looks great. Some specks of dust. Tree lines is a little bit dark.

Beatiful texture, colors and composition! - 8

you could have moved the hue of cyan alone to a little more of blue so that the skies made a more nicer contrast. red could have been a little bit more desaturated to give the fields a more drier look. nice shot. 9.

Is it just me or do those clouds look terribly fake/out of place.. hm.7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/20/2003 10:28:48 PM
I like the composition of this one. Darker clouds in the top third, with the trees and field in the bottom third. The color of those clouds above the trees looks sureal. Pretty good shot.

Grate contrast

Wonderful dof/lighting and color saturation. Nice shootin'!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/20/2003 03:22:45 PM
Great contrasting colors but what are those spots in the clouds?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/20/2003 11:37:06 AM
There is not much detail in the trees, slightly underexposed there, a curve in PS could solve that (I think it is allowed in DPC rules). The thumbnail jumped straight out. I love the colors and composition and how you made a simple scene in a very attractive picture. A 9 for now (but I might be back once I scored the rest).

Nice phot. What about using the tracks in the wheat to better effect?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/20/2003 10:38:41 AM
I like the clouds more than the field in this picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/20/2003 10:09:08 AM
Good composition the browns of the fields nicely complements the blues of the sky
