Field Of Gold
On a recent drive to Florida I took a wrong turn and ended up right on top of this wonderful field of wheat begging to be photographed. Unfortunately there were no crop circles present but the vine covered tree in the background caught my eye and left me with a nice tool to offset the ocean of wheat in the photos. I was tempted to go stand out in the field for a few shots but who knows how far off the farmer would be and I didn’t want to go stomping down someones hard work.
This is another instance of my backwards approach to shooting a landscape using f/1.4 in broad daylight, consciously running the risk of blowing out my highlights but leaving me with that characteristic vignetting and contrast. I did end up abusing the color temperature to pull out that warm golden color as well. Couldn’t really help myself!
