    I'm a city guy but spent the weekend in Walworth County, WI, which is just North of Chicago. I don't even know what the crop is but the colors really captured me.

    48787397.

    Any comments or help would be appreciated.

  2. This is a well photographed pastoral scene. Love the lighting. Kind of brings out the farm boy in me.

    That's a very nice image, Mike. The framing using the trees is nicely done and the heavy shadows in the foreground does much to bring your eyes to the crops and barn in the background. I like it alot.

    Gordon,
    Thanks a lot. My wife's family has a summer cottage in the area and we visit every Labor Day weekend, particularly for the county fair. For years, I've taken pictures of farm scenes in the area, without any great success. This is one that I'm reasonably happy with.

    Very nice. I love the yellow pasture. The trees framing the shot is a nice touch.
     
  9. The trees in the front and the farm at the other end and that colorful land in between, what a beautifull contrasty view.

    Leigh and Gilles,
    Thanks for your kind words. I think the trees and the framing make the shot.
