Photograph info: We've had the cloudiest & rainiest June I can remember! "Dull as dishwater," as the British might say. "Like we moved to Seattle and no one told us," I overheard yesterday. Last week my rain gauge registered three inches of rain in one night!
The color of the wheat reminded me that the sun is still at work behind all those clouds.
Camera settings and post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon 85mm f/1.2L lens at f/1.2, 1/8000s, ISO 50. The very shallow DOF and resulting "blur" is all due to using this lens at f/1.2. Curves, color balancing.
Thank you for visiting Durham Township!
Wow, great color for a rainy day! We've had the same weather here in Utah. It's nice to have the water, but I wish it was a summer rain instead of the cold spring rain.
It's a wonder that these amber waves of grain
Can ripen with all the east coast rain.
Grab your boots and venture out,
Splash in June puddles for next may be drought!
Wow. This is an amazing work. Yesterday evening I went out for some very similar shots - even if the sky has not been so dark. I did not have a look at them yet but I hope they are at least half as good as yours... P.S. There is a shot of crops on my blog too today. Maybe you could like it.
a classic Kathleen Connally - love the colors from front to back to sky... beautifully done! Love that 1.2, baby!
You're right - very shallow depth! Beautiful view and sky/land contrast helps the growing wheat stand out. I'm delighted to say us Brits have, for once, had a pretty good few weeks, with some great sun over here (cloudy today mind you). Always a pleasure to share our 'dull as dishwater' weather around!
I love it. It's almost abstract with just a touch of reality. Beautifully done.
I love the dramatic lighting. I agree. This month certainly has been "as dull as dishwater".
Oh, another beauty. Kathleen, your work is singular.
Man you're right. The 85mm sure is dreamy! :-)
Wow! This absolutely blew my socks off! To take what would typically be a landscape portrait and add that razor thin depth of field is just awesome. I love the little sliver of green to give the wheat some separation. Just outstanding.
Great - I am a sucker for shallow DoF, and the here the complementary colors support well this fine scenery.
I love the picture. Great color and there's a great feeling to it :)
This is so soft and gentle. The colors are magnificent. Makes the dull weather a little easier to take.
The light is luminous here. The wheat has an almost inner glow. The softness and deep rich colors give this an almost "tone-poem-ish" feel. Your work always amazes me! Thank you.
Love the soft and gentle feel against the ominously dark sky. The shallow dof is super in this image.
Fantastic light and shallow dof really makes this one.
Painterly. Like Van Gogh's Wheatfield, (sans the crows.) U B A R Tist.
Wow, that is some serious depth of field. When I first saw this, I thought you might have used the 85 f/1.2. Nicely done. Love the colors, as always.
Wow, beautiful. That's incredible depth of field right there!!
Fantastic shot. even with it being out of focus it has great mood. cheers.
Reminds me of growing up in Oklahoma, very nice shot. Love the contrast.
This is selective focus at its best! Beautiful!
Nice shot, love the colors. Oh and by the way. We just ended 26 days without rain here in Seattle and another dry spell is about to begin. It's been the best June I can remember out here. :)
Beautiful picture with great colors, unusual focusing but it seems to work here. Good Job!
Oooh this is so delicious! Crisp, soft, smooth, contradictiary adverbs - but none the less a beautiful composition!
Uh, yeah, that's just stunning.
absolutely great! i like the selective focusing effect that you use here!
niiiice!! so freakin rad this shot... like a painting.
