Pastoral by Meowgli Pastoral by Meowgli
I've been out the past couple of days looking for locations in my local area.. thought this one might be worth revisiting at sunset sometime - this was just a "scouting shot" but I quite liked how it turned out..

Nice :D Looks exactly like that round here, except most locations are spoilt by unavoidable pylons :|

Liking this one a lot, great focus, and depth of field. The composition works brilliantly as well, what with the horizon being at a perfect point in the frame. I also love the two trees in the background that are differentiating in size. All works very well mate, great job.

i :love: how you have focused on the wheat,
and left the sky. its good to focus on something different, but then your eye does look up to the trees and sky.
it has a very warm feeling, like you would be there sitting having a picnic :tighthug:

great shot :heart:

I'm rather alluding to the idea of a nice warm field here than creating a document of it, glad you like it and that some of that comes through =)

Wonderful blond color of the wheat and a good crop :nod: I like the idea to get back at sunset again. I wonder if the setting sun would give a weathfield a gorgeous golden deep tone. =D

thanks, yeah probably, and some nice long shadows.. the sun would be somewhere behind and to the left of that one single tree =)

It's an awesome shot but perhaps a bit less blurry area next time? It's awesome for the effect but it makes it a bit hard to look at when it's that much. And something that you could do (in my opinion) is switch the focus area and focus on the sky and blur the (I think that's wheat?) area. Again just some friendly suggestions, one photographer to another. Love the shot anyways. Definitely faving.

thanks for the suggestions =)

to be honest, how many thousands of "single tree" images are there all over the internet?.. I find it very difficult to knowingly create a cliché when other creative options might give a shot a new lease of life.. I'm not claiming it's original, but at least hopefully a bit more engaging than an average point-and-shoot shot of a field... I have another version of this same image shoat a f/2.8 with focus on the tree, but much prefer this one.. anyway, just giving you an idea of my mindset when taking it ;)

Oh it's most definitely a good perspective. And I concur that there are too many single tree shots. But what about moving the tree to the very edge so that it's more of a supporting feature rather then in the main focus, and adding a wider field of view of the wheat? That way the field becomes the main focus, the tree is a good background piece but doesn't draw as much attention, and perhaps get in a bit more sky if possible. And sorry if I sound a bit know-it-ally I just get all inspired when it comes to photography (and I have no one to talk to about it =( ) and this shot definitely inspired the critic in me b/c it's a great shot but there are so many things you could do with it! Again just one photographer to another <3

hey no worries, if a work sparks an idea or thought in someone they should always share it, it's nice to know the effect a work has etc.. it's what we're all here for to get some feedback while sharing and learning ;)
