April 20th

I have been trying to capture this local field for about a week!!

The weather here has been horrible, but we popped out at luchtime to do some jobs and the sky brightened for a few minutes.

Thanks fo rall your wonderful feedback on my photos of the last week, it is truly inspiring. If you get a second, I would love you to take a peek at one of my favourite photos ever, in one of my other albums.

@lesphoto Thanks Leslie. A deliberate underexposure to catch the light like this!

You have done very well Sean to find a window of blue sky with the weather we have had over the last week.. Very nice shot..

Worth a week of shots to get this, superb blue sky to contrast with the yellow.

Beautiful rolling clouds.

beautiful blue sky, like the accumulation of stripes blue/white/yellow, it's flashy and after those rainy days, sure you appreciate !
posted April 20th, 2012  
Beautiful! Love the sunny light.
posted April 20th, 2012  
You have captured this from quite a different take to all the recent shots I have seen. Like the angle and that strong gold against the blue sky. Niice shot.

Beautiful blue, pitty it's not straight on the yellow. But a great capture

@myautofocuslife Thanks Livia, you always brighten my day with your comments, not that this particular one needs brightening, so I'll put my sunglasses on!!

Is that what we call Canola?
posted April 21st, 2012  
@bobfoto I think so, you get a food grade oil from it. We call it Oil Seed Rape. It grows in the spring an ddoesn't need a lot of water, which we haven't had a lot of in recent months, so it has been planted everywhere this year!!
posted April 21st, 2012  
@seanoneill - where I grew up in the South of Australia we grew Canola because they felt that Rape Seed was a harsh name... and yes, it grows in marginal pastoral land with minimal water.
posted April 21st, 2012  
@bobfoto I'm with you on that one!

Waiting pays off. Your stuff keeps getting better and better.

Fantastic sky...glad you made it out!
posted April 22nd, 2012  
Wonderful contrast but complementarity of yellow and blue
posted April 22nd, 2012  
A nicely balanced photo. A nice change from the canola being the dominant feature, as most would expect it to be. That sky is amazing.

@esolvideosuk Thanks Jennie. I am thrilled with all the comments this shot has got, and earlier it was on the home page!!

Simply beautiful. So relaxing and peaceful and a great reflection of God's creation.
posted April 22nd, 2012  
@seanoneill not a pro as far as landscapes are concerned. Definitely my weak area!
posted April 22nd, 2012  
Beautifully captured!
posted April 22nd, 2012  
Great shot Sean, did you use a polarized filter?
posted April 23rd, 2012  
@debsphotos Thanks Debs.
posted April 23rd, 2012  
@pictureitbig Funny enough it was mine too until I started working with my exposure more on the camera.
posted April 23rd, 2012  
@rwhite Thanks Rosie.
posted April 23rd, 2012  
@simon0128 No I didn't Simon. I have a UV, and always underexpose by a couple of stops to get the dominant part of the shot to have a strong colour saturation. If it then needs tweaking in RAW or LR or PS it is mush easier to add exposure back in.
posted April 23rd, 2012  
@seanoneill Cool cheers Sean!
posted April 23rd, 2012  
Oh I just want to run through that fiiiiiiiiiiiield! Amazing colors!
posted April 23rd, 2012  
Fantastic landscape. Love the yellow-blue contrast
posted April 23rd, 2012  
@zuzana I think if you viewed gritain from space at the moment a huge chunk of it will be yellow Zuzana. The countryside around me is awash with yellow. Thanks for your ever kind feedback.
