[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
What i wanted to capture was the softness, lightness and texture of the wheat, which is why it dominates the scene. I'll leave it up to you to decide if I've been successful.

ISO 100
1/100 sec

Normally I try to limit the f stop to f/16 to maintain the sharpness, but it was a new camera so I went to f/22.

Hi Robert, sorry that after 43rd me 44th not got any attention for critique or comment as yo did not named the main tool the camera, the f/22 has not worked well there seems no depth and contrast around.

Bom dia Robert,
I'm trying to imagine the position where you stood for as low viewpoint.
I suppose you're still getting used to the new machine, because the result was not good, because the F / 22 malfunctioned.

Hi Robert,
I quite like this image as one visually skims over the soft textured tips of wheat and drawn into the setting.The soft contrast in the distance has worked well however I think maybe the sky is a tab light, otherwise an interesting presentation.


I like this view. It is something that I would have been tempted to photograph, I understand your approach.
I like the main tree in bg, an interesting focal point.
Looks like a lot of sun in front of you.
I like your awkwardness with your new camera, this is too cute and so human.
I've done a ws just to try something with contrast and for my curiosity.

Hello Robert,

I like this natural landscape..... where a wheat field is your main subject. I like the tossing head of the wheats. I like the way you have given much place in foreground. IMHO my eyes are searching just a complementary subject; such as branch, a tree or a dry wood etc, which would give it a strong composition.
Thanks for sharing your work with us and thanks a lot for your encouragement in my last post,
